Last weekend was spent relaxing and making embroidered Folk Art Christmas decorations for family and friends at the Chestnut Creek farmhouse. Outside was cold and rainy. Inside was snug and warm, surrounded by the gorgeous colors of felt and embroidery threads.

8 days left to Christmas! And working on my 19th decoration…Still have a few more to do before Christmas Eve.

Join us for a Folk Art Embroidered Felt Decoration Class

With the Hirsh Wellness Network at 6-7.30pm

The fabulous colors and patterns of the Eastern European Folk Artist Maria Prymachenko, will be our inspiration for our embroidered felt Christmas decorations. We will using the running stitch and simple variations of the running stitch to decorate our felt decorations.

We will be inspired to create our own narrative, to embroider the elements of our own culture and lives. In the year 2020, how will that narrative be affected by our experience with covid?
