Event Details

The Textile Center and the American Craft Council are joining forces for a special holiday edition of the Salon Series. Stars are a traditional textile motif throughout the world, and the use of stars is widespread in holiday traditions and decoration. Here you can embroider a holiday ornament using your choice of traditional star designs from several northern European countries and learn the embroidery stitches that tie the textile traditions of these cultures together. Fiber artist and instructor Lynn Cooper, as well as Textile Center staff members, will be present to discuss the history and cultural significance of the star patterns, motifs, and colors, and to assist the audience in their own embroidering projects. All attendees will be given a packet that has the instructions and materials necessary to complete a hand-crafted fiber holiday ornament. Enjoy some holiday treats, learn about craft traditions, and take home an ornament handmade by you.

Presented by the American Craft Council, the Library Salon Series is a series of free public presentations exploring craft, making, and art. Check out past salon series events.

This activity was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
