Red Work workshop with a Red Work Enthusiast!

Marion Public Library, Marion, IN

Redwork is a form of American embroidery that developed in the 19th Century. Traditionally, red threads were chosen because red dyes were the first commercially available colorfast dyes. The photo is representative of what we will be working on, but it may be a different image. Bring a pair of small, sharp scissors and a 4" embroidery hoop. And bring a lunch! Kit for $5 will contain fabric, needle and floss. Maximum of 10 students so register today!
