im happy to say that things are really coming together as we enter our last two weeks of production before the launches.
once march is over the initial contract i had with the sewing ladies is finished...so i sat down with them last week and asked them how they are feeling about it all and if they are happy here and all that. i explained to them that if the things sell...then i will come back from australia with lots more ideas of what to make.
they all made it very clear that they want to stay on and work with me long term. they are really happy with the set up and hope that we can continue with the sewing. not that i was concerned...but it was good to get some feedback and really hear that they are happy here. (i find it hard to read cambodian facial expressions...so words are helpful in that regards).
since our trip to rabbit island the ladies seem to feel more relaxed with us and im hoping they have really understood that we have their best interest at heart... they are also giving me some hints that they would like another trip to rabbit island... just another romantic getaway for the 17 of us!! :)
