Sustainability I took this photo-during one of my sewing workshops in Nagado, Fiji in January, 2011. The most important part of the workshop is to show the villagers how to repair their own machines. This elderly woman is repairing her own sewing machine. Ana, the village leader's wife, said with tears in her eyes "These twenty American-made machines needed an American to come in to help bring them back to life." They had been sitting-broken and rusted for twenty years or more. Claudia Jayne Pacific Islands Fiji 2010 2011 2012 Business Development 2010s
