A New Season Brings New Designs for Rag-a-Muffin

Spring has sprung in the Rag-A-Muffin employment program. The latest editions of the purses and bags include original, hand-stitched sequin and beaded designs. The bags, made from recycled materials, will be on-sale in Virginia next month.

The new bags have a variety of custom designs. Many of the new styles are based on the image of a mandala (meditation circle). Others are floral, and others are simply images I’ve been drawing for years. Over the past several weeks, three of our previously-trained employees, Santa, Amos and Frantzie, embellished the designs with beading and sequins. A new addition to our team, a master tailor, now uses the completed embellishments to make the front panel of bags. – Christina Moynihan, Director of Community Outreach in Haiti

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Mrs. Moynihan has two upcoming sales in Virginia. One at Bishop Ireton High School in Alexandria, and another at Mary Baldwin College in Staunton. The bags will also be on sale at The Sacred Circle gift store, also in Staunton.
