Yesterday, I made another visit to Laqiya, to see the women of "Desert Embroidery" which is a non-profit organization for the empowerment of Bedouin women in the northern Negev. The organization provides the women with a framework for getting together, hearing lectures about a wide array of subjects, and embroidering all sorts of projects for sale in their shop. I brought them another one of my "coexistence quilts" which incorporates a piece of their embroidery as a central element. They were eager to receive it and to make it available for sale in their shop!
This is the quilt that they are offering for sale --
