I have had many asking about how to buy stitcheries in Cairo. If you ring Amal on 25898364 or 25882484 - the Association of Upper Egypt for Education and Development headquarters they have a lot of embroideries left but will send them back as unsold soon. Amal has lovely English. Ring quickly - I almost bought a stack more - but Bob was with me urging caution!
I think they would alwys be able to teel you where they can be bought.
I am in Spain and life is good.
