Welcome to Pulse Wire!

Rachelle,

Welcome to PulseWire where the voices of women worldwide are uniting. Your voice will be treasured and heard. You have a great wealth of experience and commitment to the people of Yunnan Province. I'm so curious how this work came about for you? With many travels abroad, I've always been drawn to handmade creations marveling at detailed work and beautiful colors. Where do you sell the handicrafts in the States and how has that been going?

Take a moment to browse through our group directory (http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups) where you may find a group with similar interests to your own. Or, you might start your own group centered around fair trade, where you can build a powerful network bringing PulseWire members together with similar visions.

I am excited to read your journal entries, hear the comments you make, and get to know you.

Best,

Laura
