Embroider your own tote with Claribel! / TBD
Claribel is our friend from Sumpango, a town known for beautiful traditional neckline embroidery full of flowers, volcanoes, and other motifs reminiscent of the town's famous Barriletes, the giant kites flown for All Saints' Day.
This 1.5-hour class includes:
- A canvas tote made by Creamos is already stenciled by Claribel for easy embroidery
- A variety of naturally-dyed cotton threads
- Access to live Zoom instruction from Claribel (as well as the recording) including cultural importance of the patterns, embroidery trends in her town, and step-by-step stitching
- PDF guide with pre-recorded close-up videos of each of the stitches
Shipping with DHL / UPS usually takes 3-5 days to US destinations (a bit longer to other places).
The class will be held on Saturday, May 21st, 2022, from 10:30am - 12noon Guatemala time (that's 9:30am - 11am Pacific) with Claribel as the teacher and Mari as the translator/moderator.
An email with more details will be sent a few days before the class, including the Zoom meeting invitation and a PDF with instructions to facilitate following along. The class will be recorded and shared privately, so participants will be able to go back and review the material at their leisure.
