Morven Hosts Art of Cross Stitch Virtual Workshops
Thursdays, November 12 and 19, 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. and/or Saturday, November 14, 2 to 4 p.m.
Cross stitch, a form of embroidery that uses X-shaped stitches to form a picture, has been a popular pastime for centuries and several of Morven’s residents enjoyed needlework.
Join Morven Museum for virtual cross stitch sessions with local needleworker Marisa Simon. Learn to stitch either a Morven ornament (which can be finished as a pillow or sachet) or frame-worthy sampler, just in time for holiday gift-giving.
Choose from either Thursday and/or Saturday sessions (two sessions) for four hours of instruction from beginning to finishing. All levels are welcome.
The cost to attend is $75 ($65 for Friends of Morven), all materials and four hours of instruction included for either sampler or ornament. Visit www.morven.org to register.
Cross stitch students are welcome to visit the museum during open hours on Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. throughout November.
