Winter Fair: Redwork (19th Century Embroidery)
Thursday, December 27, 2018 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM Salem Stitches
Workshop Description: Experience history hands-on! Redwork, hand embroidery using red cotton floss, became popular in the mid to late 1800s when E.A. Vogler built and operated the “The Ladies Furnishing Store,” now known as the Moravian Book & Gift Shop. It is fitting to offer a workshop at Salem Stitches. Muriel Riggs, a local textile arts instructor and Redwork aficionado will conduct a hands on learning experience showing her collection of Redwork textiles and teaching the finer points of hand embroidery using red cotton thread. Each participant will work on their personal sampler to bring home. Ages 10 +. Beginners welcome and all supplies included.
Cost: $50 per person for Redwork Workshop only.
