Registration for each lecture is open for a 1-week period and participants for each lecture will be randomly selected in the interest of fairness for all members. You can learn more about the process and see all our upcoming virtual lectures here. We also recently added a form to each of the lectures, so you can be notified when registration starts.

We will have an encore of Sarah Pedlow’s virtual lecture The Culture of Folk Embroidery in 3 European Countries on August 15, reservation is open through July 26, 2021. Learn more.

Haptic Memory with Dr. Sharbreon Plummer in September, examines the inequities faced by Black women in artistic interpretation, and how their creative production through fiber intersects with labor, maternal relationships and ancestral memory.  Registration will be open August 16-23, 2021 1PM Eastern. Sign up for a reminder.

These classes and projects were also featured in our June 2021 issue of Needle Arts.
