Her hands, her work, her money
Fostering self-sufficiency through the beauty of handmade crafts 

Refugee women living in Colorado face many challenges, among them the often daunting task of achieving self-sufficiency. By forming a crafts collective, these remarkable women are pooling their talents, skills and creativity to earn money for themselves while adding a little beauty to the world.

With guidance from a team of volunteers, the women of A Little Something are also learning: 
  • Technical skills
  • Business basics
  • English
  • Math
  • Budgeting
  • Fine motor skills
  • Time management
  • Working in the
    collaborative spirit.
The women of A Little Something enjoy making crafts that are as diverse as the group itself, including:
  • Weaving
  • Sewing
  • Crochet
  • Jewelry
  • Beads
  • Knitting
