ANNA HERGERT Workshop on KANTHA EMBROIDERY in Ottawa, Sept. 15, 2012

THE ANCIENT ART OF KANTHA QUILTING with Anna Hergert


Are you interested in learning more about other cultures and their quilting techniques?

Join us for a virtual trip to India and get introduced to this ancient quilting technique that elevates recycling/reusing to a fine art. Hand quilters and embroiderers will embrace this simple and yet very effective method of embellishing fabric with running stitches to create one of a kind pieces suitable for framing. All you need is to bring a thimble (if you use one) and a pair of small, sharp embroidery scissors. Instructor will provide all other supplies for a kit fee of $25. See samples of Anna's work at www.annahergert.com .
