Hi Moira, I saw a comment you had left on Verena Oberraugh's profile page and having read it, I would really like to know more about what you are doing in Palestine. I am living in Palestine currently and trying to start a project with women here making items of night wear to supplement their household's income and provide a platform for social activity. I hope to include embroidery in the designs as a means of using/keeping indigenous alive. My background's NGO experience and a personal interest in sewing and embroidery. I'd really like to hear more about your ideas and activty- it would be interesting to chat! All the best, Lorna Watt

Nice to hear about your passion in development issues and the path you have selected. I just landed this page from Linkedin group discussion about "Should Fairtrade International and FLO-Cert, promote and support the development of Fairtrade labelling systems in the developing countries?" which might be useful for you to follow.
I hope I can give you further help on your project. I am from Bulgaria where I spent over 30 years in the clothing industry, including 9 years NGO experience and I teach fashion marketing in Beijing, China now.
