UzGifts
John Smart, Uz3, has been working with a number of Uzbek students here in the U.S. To help support this work, please take some time and look at some of the crafts they have brought to the US. If you have any questions, feel free to email John at jnsmart@yahoo.com. The following is a note from John on the process for ordering these items :

The prices include shipping, and Shaha will provide a written note about the items for gift giving, if you wish.  This really is nice stuff.  I'm sure that you will be happy with it.  And the kid needs the money!

Please mail a check or money order to Shahriyor Rahmatov in care of John Smart at 560 Third Avenue South/Park Falls WI 54552.

Happy Holidays, and thanks friends...
