Around 150 women around the country showcased their handicrafts at the Fiji Corrections Service wives and mothers cultural show at Sukuna Park in Suva.

 

It was a proud moment for the wives of corrections officers at the Naboro Pre Release Centre yesterday as they proudly showcased their hidden talents at a cultural show.

Totally new to making handicraft, the group of women did not have any knowledge on how to make these items.

But, they worked together to create handicraft items and sewed bedroom, kitchen and living room sets.

Around 150 women from the nine corrections institutions around the country showcased their handicrafts at the Fiji Corrections Service Wives and Mothers Cultural Show at Sukuna Park in Suva.

Group member Amelia Malumudrodro said: “We started with this handicraft work a few months back.

“We usually have volleyball matches but the Fiji Police Force Commissioner Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho decided to forego volleyball matches and came up with the idea of a craft show.

“We are happy to be part of the Fiji Corrections Service Wives and Mothers Cultural Show,” she said.

Mrs Malumudrodro said there were five women at the Naboro Pre Release Centre and none of them had any idea how to make a handicraft or sew.

“But, we worked together and contributed to come up with ideas on how to make handicraft items and designs.

“We meet every Saturday to make handicraft items and stitch bedroom sets, kitchen sets and living room sets,” she said.

Mrs Malumudrodro said this benefited them a lot and the money earned was used for their household expenses.

“We even contribute to buy items to make our handicraft items and stitch bedroom sets, kitchen sets and living room sets,” she said.
