Business is booming this year for the women of Stitch Sainte Luce! Sales figures from January to August record that the cooperative has already sold over 30 million Ariary worth of stock in 2017 - a massive £7,600! That means they're on track to match or even beat the total sold last year, their most profitable year to date.
The impressive figures are due to a combination of thriving local sales at the studio in Sainte Luce and several events in the UK where our generous volunteers have sold hundreds of pounds worth of products. Sales in 2017 have been boosted by a highly successful sale of Stitch products at Operation Wallacea in the north of Madagascar this summer, along with a big boost from Fettes College who visited us in July, picking up souvenirs and presents for family back home.
