American Friends of UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestina Refugees in the Near East)  joins The Embroidery Project in inviting you to the 2009 pre-holiday sale of traditional and modern embroidery from Palestinian refugee camps and cooperatives in Gaza, the West Bank, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. We will be selling a selection of embroidered kaffiyehs, handbags, coasters, book covers and business card cases, as well as shawls, children’s dresses, cushion covers, jewelry cases, etc.  The sale continues Saturday, Nov. 21 from 10am to 2pm.

Please note that credit cards are not accepted. Checks are accepted and should be made payable to The Embroidery Project, LLC .

UNRWA Sulafa Embroidery Project is located in Gaza City and provides income generating opportunities for hundreds of refugee women, both Muslim and Christian, through a network of 9 community centers across the Gaza Strip. The community centers help preserve the traditional Palestinian art for future generations. The centers also help refugee women provide income for their families who are living under harsh international sanctions and constant threat of Israeli attack.
