My name is Sabah El Najjar, I came to Canada 19 years ago, as a refugee.
My hobbies include sewing, arts & crafts and I specialize in embroidery. My embroidery designs are usually on the traditional side.
I used to watch my mother embroider any chance she could get and that’s where my inspiration started. From there I started by creating different designs, experimenting with all sorts of colours and drawing inspiration from everything around me.
