Virtual Let's Make Stuff: Sashiko Stitched Coasters, 6-7:30 p.m. Oct. 26
Join us for Virtual Let's Make Stuff! to get crafty and learn something new. Sashiko is a form of linear Japanese embroidery using the running stitch to create pattern and design. Work with authentic sashiko thread, needle, and pre-designed fabric, learn the stitching process and a bit of its history, and come away with a hand-stitched coaster. Let's Make Stuff is a creative class for adults and funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Class size is limited so registration is required.
