Hi Louana,
Thanks for your prompt reply.I checked in all the postal services in Bamenda and we cannot get the sample.Since it was a registered mail , the post office authorities are asking for the registration number of the mail and if possible the tracking number.If it is an ordinary mail then we have to wait .Please let us know .

Please if you should have any information to enable us track the mail then it will be great.

The only problem we have as of now is getting the sample.This is the only basis for the progress of our engagement.

We look forward to your kind cooperation.

Best regards

Have you had success with bags?

Hello Louana,

I wrote to you via your regular L_Bag email account, but I thought I'd try you here as well. I'm a volunteer writer with World Pulse and I'm researching 'success stories' to feature on the website. The WP team was very excited to watch your exchanges with various members unfold with regard to your call for a sewing co-op. What is the latest? Have you been able to get samples to any of the people who contacted you above? Are there any developments you'd like to share with our online community?

If so, kindly let me know where I can reach you. I am always happy to send interview questions via email.

Thanks!
Rachel
