I've been doing workshops at our store on how to make and knit with plastic shopping bags and t-shirts...everyone was surprised at how pretty some of the projects looked...even a bit elegant :D

very cool!! Honestly i would have to say my favorite part of Africa is the part my best friend currently resides... and this changes every so often. She joined Africare ( similar to the peace corp.)after college and then married a local political activist there. So needless to say with the miles between us we have not seen each other in at least 20 years!! So where ever she currently lives working at the time is my favorite.

It probably sounds cliche but I have always loved Egypt. It has always fascinated me. I would love just to see Africa and learn more about it. Since my school never really taught very much about it.

The only part of Africa that I have visited is Egypt and it was amazing... so that would be my favorite. However I would really like to see Morrocco as well.

I will have to go with Kenya. Friends visited and shared photos with us it was beautiful.

My friend was in the Peace Corps in Cameroon and I loved hearing tales of the people he met and places he experienced.

My favorite part of Africa would honestly have to be the people! I am just fascinated by the skill so many of the women have. A friend of mine went to Africa and has some of the most wonderful pictures of women weaving the most beautiful rugs on the very simplest of looms!
