STITCHING CIRCLE AT DE-STRESS FEST: Embroidery on Paper
Mon, March 4, 3 – 4pm

No experience necessary! Spend some time stitching into paper with Book Arts Center staff. Learn one or two embroidery stitches, and then create your own designs or embroider existing patterns and images into heavy-weight paper. Slow down, breath, and craft something beautiful with your hands.

We’ll provide letters, envelopes, and postage. You provide the message. Write letters to your representatives about Palestine/Israel or other issues on your mind. Or send mail to a parent or friend. Try our typewriters, write by hand, or bring your laptop.
