On Friday, April 9, the wives of the ambassadors of the United States and Canada visited the municipality of Indjija and the Association "Etno dom Gorocvet", a member of the Ethno Network.

Anne Godfrey, the wife of the American ambassador, and Valerie Norman, the wife of the Canadian ambassador, talked with the members of "Gorocvet" in the high school "Dr Djordje Natosevic", with whom they have nurtured cooperation in creative workshops for students and transfer of embroidery skills and preservation of tradition. The school also organized an exhibition of alphabets, miniatures, towels and selected handicrafts by members of "Gorocvet".
