at the Armenian Museum!
…needlework can be seen as giving a woman a kind of ‘voice’: stitches, instead of words, becoming a language through which she might speak.

Join us for this unique opportunity to continue the tradition of Armenian needlelace!
Taught by Textile Curator Susan Lind-Sinanian, these three sessions are a unique opportunity to learn intricate regional techniques that were passed down through generations from mother to daughter. All materials are supplied so just show up ready to learn techniques practiced by Armenian women for centuries.
Examples from the Museum’s textile collection will provide inspiration as you find your voice by sewing edgings on linens.
Have Armenian needlelace at home? Bring them in to share your family story!
