Mapusha Weaving Cooperative

February 14, 2013General

One of my key stops in South Africa this week is at the Mapusha Weaving Cooperative, in the hills near Acornhoek. My sister, Judy Miller, has worked with the weavers for the last decade. That's her with the spinner, Anna Mduli. They're building a new studio a few hundred yards away. That's the big job this summer. The new studio will be just a stone's throw from the new nursery, where I stopped by for some songs.
