Colcha Community Stitch-Along

December 18

1 pm

Live via Zoom

Our Colcha Community Workshop is going virtual until we are able to meet in person, and is open to anyone wherever they may reside. This workshop is instructed by Annette Gutierrez-Turk. Annette has taught this art form to groups internationally and at the NHCC for many years. She is also an award winning artist, most recently recognized in 2019 at Santa Fe Spanish Market. This workshop is for all levels of experience in an informal setting.  Annette will demonstrate as well as answer questions. We hope you will join us every month on the third Friday, for this virtual stitch-a-long. Everyone will have a chance to share what they are working on. 

Please register here every month and we will email the zoom link to you.

Questions: Please email Elena at ElenaD.Baca@state.nm.us or call 505-220-7928

Thank you to the Sandia Mountains- EGA for their continued support of this program.
