Pojagi - Traditional Korean Needlework

May 21, 9:30AM-4:30PM

This needlework is from Korea and has a rich history and tradition.  The project for this class will be made of both silk and cotton, with some unique Korea accents.  The project will be demonstrated for both and hand-work and machine. Come join us, bring your machine or you can sew it by hand! 


Mock Molas!

May 22, 9:30AM-4:30PM

The Mola is a beautiful and colorful art design that is originally from the Kuni people of Panama. Traditionally done with lots of colors, lots of layers of fabric and lots of laborious teeny-tiny needle-turn hand stitches! Our class project will be a Modified Mola that will have the flavor of the original without all of the work.

This is a handwork class, so, no machines. Bring your thimbles and prepare to get addicted to this colorful, fun and very easy technique!
