Third day was a marvelous day for the SSP stalls. An LCD was placed on the Stall to present their work
and achievements a presentation was continuously running Rana Arif was so fast and lots of people
bought the pottery.
Society for special for special person’s three visually impaired people continuously gave performance
whole three days on the stage.
Specialties of SSP stalls

A visually impaired man who has a big moral and a big heart who is living his hand to mouth but he has a
courage and his hand are his earning source although he is visually impaired but he earns by making
knitted foot stools (can said to be floral padded) and these stools are very famous they are also exported
from Pakistan.
These in your home are an ideal way of maximizing space in any room and keeping clutter at bay. A foot
stool also creates additional seating space. Double stool easily seat a few kids or two adults, and single
can be used for sitting and makes ideal foot-resting space during movie nights. Adnan gave his precious
three days to the society as we can see in the picture.

A polio effected boy who is very good in embroidered also took part in the stalls stalls were all of special
people but these people gave a special time to use Pakistan is very famous with the embroidered work
made in cloths. Embroidery work is done on a large scale in Pakistan. Not only men, but women of
Pakistan also do this elegant work on different types of clothing and
accessories. Embroidery work has importance in Pakistan as well as in
its neighboring country India. So, it must be said that embroidery is the
token of traditional work of these two countries. Pakistan possessed
many textile production ideas from the start and also adapted some at
the time of Partition. Many craftsmen moved from the neighbor
country to Pakistan. Not only this, but Pakistan also adapted some of
the embroidery techniques from Afghanistan, Iran and China so it must
be said that most of the Pakistani embroidery techniques are a mixture
of these four countries. Many types of embroidery techniques are used to create beautiful pieces of this
artwork. Pakistan produces elegant sheesha work pieces which have their own importance in Pakistani
needlework traditions. Pakistani embroidery work is also considered important internationally and they
can be bought online from any popular website. Moreover, you can find many types of embroidery work
pieces locally as well.
Visually impaired peoples have a great esthetic sense and three visually impaired people named Javed
Tahir and Imran participated on stage for three days continuously on crafts festival.
A continuous awareness paper on accessibility and about special people was divided by the special
peoples to the civil people and they also took their remarks.
