On Tuesday, January 19, we’ll be meeting to look at stitched textiles- whether contemporary or historic.

This time, we’ll be having a presentation by Christina Fairley Erickson, about Jewish and Palestinian textiles, from her recent trip to Israel.  She will present slides of historic pieces in museums; a home and studio of a contemporary Jerusalem textile artist, Chana Cromer; a show by the Israel Quilters’ Association on the Sea of Galilee; an Arab Women’s cooperative in the Old City-Jerusalem; and an exhibition of contemporary embroideries by Eytan George Hurwitz in Acre.

Everyone is welcome (students, former students and guests), but we do ask for you to call the office (360) 466-0110 or send us an email to let us know that you’ll be attending, so we can plan for the right number of people.
