Tanzania Fabric, Fun & Facts Retreat

RESCHEDULED - April 7-9, 2019
Swanson Center at Carol Joy Holling Camp

 

This retreat gives a glimpse into Tanzanian culture, teaches a quilt pattern using Tanzanian fabrics, and helps to support partnership programs in Tanzania through purchases of fabric during the retreat. 

Mary Mayfield, our retreat leader, brings her expertise and experience from her many trips to Tanzania. The Northern Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania is a sister synod of the Nebraska Synod (ELCA).  Through this partnership, Mary has traveled to Tanzania six times (seven by the time of the retreat!), and has a heart for the people she has met along the way.
