The Nasekula Methodist Church women’s group was able to promote their screen printing handicraft during a showcase at the church in Labasa on Friday.

The main spectators of the art display were their spouses and church members who after the programme prepared lunch to show their appreciation.

Nasekula Methodist Church women’s group secretary Veniana Tubuka said the women used different kinds of materials to design and print clothing material for their homes.

“Materials the women designed were table cloths, curtains, bed spreads, pillow covers and food covers,” Ms Tubuka said.

“Women used their free time at home during the year to do this.

“After this event they can decide whether they wish to use it for their home or they want to sell it to earn some money.”

She said there were about 75 women in the group and most of them were housewives.

Elder group member 78-year-old Selita Dimuri said she was happy to be part of the handicraft show.

“All the women were able to interact with each other and share about their interests,” Ms Dimuri said.

“Although I am very old, I was able to showcase my talent which encouraged many women.”

Another member, mother of four Maopa Nairima said she thanked God for blessing women with talent so that they could use it to help their family and themselves.

“The women used their leisure time to make what interests them the most,” Ms Nairima said.

“Through this we were able to tell men that we were not only good at managing the house in their absence but were committed in using our free time in useful things that will benefit the family as a whole.”
