The history of Embroidery Dreams

Toward the Election Day in Israel I want to show you a lovely historical picture.

Grandfather Samuel with his children Zvika and Alisa are standing in front of the first election propaganda in Israel.
So exciting, the first elections of Israel.
The dream of a new state came true.

Today I want to talk about my origin, thanks to them we are here, embroider our dreams.
This week I have got some embroidered napkins from Alisa, my aunt.
The beautiful embroidered napkins were embroidered by my grandmother Runya.
Grandmother Runya was an expert embroiders. Her stitches were perfect.

I believe that the importent thing is the experience and the process we p
ass through by creating and not necessarily the result
But this time when I saw these napkins I was so excited and amazed from the quality of embroidery and immediately I felt like I am touching a piece of another culture
from another period

While I'm talking about history, I want to show you some pictures of my family
