    Our mission is to ignite the passion for tatreez in the hearts of those in the diaspora so that we may keep the tradition of tatreez thriving. Our students come from all backgrounds, ages, and genders.

  • 53 Workshops

    Each workshop includes a historical analysis Palestinian tatreez to ensure we are engrained in the context of this art, as well as a demonstration portion that instructs students step by step through the mechanics of cross-stitching.

  • 17 States and 35 Cities

    We travel to various communities across the U.S. to hold our workshops to ensure this cultural practice is accessible to all, regardless of location. We are based in Chicago, IL and thus far have visited Texas, California, New York, Maryland, Virginia, Wisconsin, Michigan and more.
