TUE, OCT 11 - Semamori embroidery – sewn blessings
In many ancient cultures decorative stitching was used to protect the wearer of a garment from evil. Semamori, literally translates from the Japanese as back protection, and was applied to the small kimono of children to protect them from being ambushed by a devil from behind. Each pattern has symbolic meaning, and conveys blessings and protections from the maker to the wearer of the finished garment. In the workshop we will sew several of the most popular patterns based on antique sewing charts.
Registration deadline is September 30.
