Colcha Community Stitch-Along

April 9

1 pm (MST)

Live via Zoom

Our Virtual Colcha Community Workshop is open to all levels of experience in an informal setting, 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 second 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
