For friends in San Francisco, don't forget the Middle East Children's Alliance and Joining Hands are holding a Mother's Day Boutique on 4 May.
"Stop by MECA's office tomorrow to purchase crafts and edibles including pottery from Jerusalem and Hebron; embroidery from refugee camps in Gaza, West Bank and Lebanon; hand-carved olive wood by artisans and hip designers in Bethlehem; award-winning fair trade Palestinian olive oil; jewelry from women in Jerusalem and Ramallah; and much more! The sale supports artisans and cooperatives in Palestine with proceeds going to MECA's work with children and families in Palestine and Lebanon."
We like the poster MECA has created for the event - the embroidery at the top is obviously from a similar intifada dress to this one in our collection.

Remember if you can't get to the Boutique you can shop online here :)
