At around 10AM, the sewing machines come to a stop and the ladies of Mend gather outside to take tea, share stories, and even do some hair styling.

    Both images got my attention and made me so happy at the same time. I wish all of us in this modern social media world could be able to find happiness in the most simplest things, like sewing! Woman all over the world should give it a try, i personally love it and every day I sit in front of my sewing machine and transport myself to a different zone! Once again, beautiful images of beautiful women!
