Craft show attracts the best

ABOUT 100 women took time off their daily activities to be part of a handicraft mini-show at the Soqosoqo Vakamarama Macuata House in Labasa yesterday.

The women of Caumatalevu had the opportunity to display their handicraft items and artwork, some of which were made from freshwater reeds (kuta), voivoi and empty crispies packets.

Organisation head Adi Samanunu Katonivere said the best display would represent Macuata in the upcoming Rural Women's Expo in Suva.

"The expo is scheduled for next month and some of the women here will be attending it," Adi Samanunu said.

"The best display here will be representing Macuata in the expo. This show has not only brought about the talents and skills of these women but also a sense of togetherness.

"It's also a time for the women to come together to socialise and catch up with one another."

Adi Samanunu said it was also important to discuss ways to energise the association.

"Since the passing away of the late soqosoqo (association) head, Adi Senimili Dyer, last year, operations progressed slowly.

"But now, we have decided to re-strengthen it and plan for some major reforms for the purpose of helping the women of Caumatalevu. Major plans are in the pipeline for us."
