The thobe, a handmade embroidered dress, has symbolized Palestinian textile artistry since the 11th century. Wafa Ghnaim leads a fascinating exploration of the heritage of Palestinian embroidery and examines how generations of women have preserved and modernized these traditions in diasporic communities. Then in a workshop, Ghnaim guides participants in creating a bookmark with a stitched thobe design on 12-count Aida cloth.
