After having such a great time coming together as a community for Beading Circle, and especially with powwow season already upon us, we wanted to learn how to sew! Come learn from our beloved expert, Mavis Blacker, and let’s get together to share our skills, learn new skills and tell stories!
When: Every Wednesday, May 17th- June 7th
Where: Ho-Chunk Chicago Branch Office, 4738 N Milwaukee
Time: 4-7 pm
Facilitated by: Mavis Blacker
Whether you are coming to learn how to sew or are already advanced in skill, come join us at this community event. Bring your own projects, finished and in-progress to share. There will be materials available to make regalia with sewing machines on hand. Also, if you have scraps, old regalia pieces or materials you would like to donate and put to good use, please bring them!
WE WILL ALSO STILL CONTINUE BEADING AS WELL! We ask for participants to be age 12+, unless they can sit still and sew or bead. We would also like to have potluck food available, please bring a small dish to share, if possible. Please note, bringing a dish is not required to attend or participate. Materials will be provided and this event is free and open to the public.
A great big thanks to our partners and co-sponsors Ho-Chunk Chicago Branch Office and St. Kateri Center. Look forward to seeing you there!
