Sixteen Stitching Techniques

The Forgotten Treasures of Palestinian Embroidery

  • Deborah Mullins

    This is brilliant news! I only found out about OmarJoseph Nasser-Khoury’s project with Inaash recently and I would love a copy of the book! I give talks in England about Palestinian dress and Bethlehem embroidery, and recently met up with embroiderers at WCCS in Beit Jala to learn from them and share my work inspired by traditional tahriri designs in Bethlehem dresses. I am currently researching the different designs in borders of qabbeh on Bethlehem dresses – and there are lots of people here who love this embroidery and want to learn about it, and the history behind it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f2f1f13b95eeb34827a129040f51a54bf0f5ffacfb127e7dd9684aec685ebdbe.jpg
