Embroidery

The school of embroidery is a tradition in Saint Nektarios! The Foundation’s children and young girls of the parish used to sit all together hanging out in the evenings to learn the fine needlework of embroidery. And of course the embroideries were either offered as the dowry of the Foundation’s girls or for sale for financial support. Nowadays children spend more time studying for school, but again there are those who like to know a handiwork. So we organized the School for embroidery and knitting. Every Monday and Thursday 16: 00- 18:00 in the church hall, a group of women gather under the teacher Mrs. Maria Giorgakaki to learn to knit and embroider.
