Limited Quantity - Obama Fabric For Sale

I just received an email from a new friend of mine, who is the President of Cross Cultural Collaborative. Here is more information about her from the website.

"Ellie graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 1960 with a degree in Art Education. She was an art teacher and supervisor in public schools for over 20 years and taught adult education classes in the Boston area.

She was also a professional potter and part owner of the Cambridge Artists Cooperative crafts gallery in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA. Always attracted to African art, Ellie took her first trip to Ghana in 1978. Since then she has returned many times to research and study traditional crafts, do volunteer teaching and take people on crafts and culturally centered tours of Ghana.

She now devotes herself fulltime to directing Cross Cultural Collaborative, Inc. and facilitating workshops held at its cultural center in Ghana."

Ellie was in Ghana while President Obama was there. She found some fabric and has a limited amount for sale. See the first picture above.

The price is $15.00 per yard plus shipping.

Please order And check out Cross Cultural Collaborative's website to see what's new. Photos are courtesy of Ellie Schimelman.

Thanks for letting us know about the fabric Ellie! Get it while you can!
