The Women’s Child Care Society is one of the few embroidery groups that have preserved the Tahriri, couching stitch embroidery that is unique to the Bethlehem area. The Society has trained 15 women from Tequa’, the village south of Bethlehem, on this complex stitching technique where gold and silver chords are twisted into vividly coloured threads. It takes six months of training for a woman to become skilled in this special technique. The society currently provides embroidery work for 50 women from 10 villages in the area.Tahriri
