    This is a flipped meeting! Natalya will be speaking 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Business will be in the second half. 

    In June our speaker will be Natalya Khorover, and you will not believe what she is going to show us. Natalya makes use of single-use plastics in her work, and will show us how to do the same. Her lecture and workshop will be Alternative Stitching Practices.

    Natalya will give you the confidence to stitch on anything. She will show examples that will motivate and inspire, she will share details about how to work with many materials, and the pitfalls as well. This lecture will broaden your understanding of what you can use in your art.

    To see how Natalya uses cast-off materials for inspiration visit her website:
