3rd weavers’ colony on Stara Planina

3rd weavers’ colony took place from June 11 to June 14 in the former border post in the community of Dojkinici on Stara Planina. The colony gathered 15 weavers from all over Serbia (Sombor, Leskovac, Krusevac, Sabac, Pancevo, Sremska Mitrovica, Cacak, Kikinda, Belgrade). Participants of the colony wove pieces from the sleeves of a shirt worn by Queen Natalija in order to enrich their knowledge and skills in weaving. Main goal of the colony was to provide support for affirmation of rural women. Secondary goal was to provide women with a steady source of income by making handicrafts as business and diplomatic gifts.
