Palestinian Embroidery

Dear Rida

What a lovely powerpoint about embroidery. I will pass it on to the Textiles teacher who will be interested in showing it to her pupils. Such beautiful examples of cross stitch by your pupils!

Thank you for sharing it on the page.

Hi Catherine ! Thanks alot for giving us the chance to share in this fantastic project . We are so happy that you like our work and we appreciate your effort to show it to other teachers and pupils . My students are interested in working on a project about the famous old places in Jerusalem . Will this fit in the part related to monuments ? We have lots of other ideas about traditional folk dancing ( dabka ) , crafts and other traditional games . If you find that appropriate , just let me know . Thanks again . Best regards Rida
