In addition, hand stitch artist Monika Kinner-Whalen will be sharing her expertise in the morning session of May 26th,.
Second Week : Harnessing one or more of the innovative techniques that each participant has explored,  they will be encouraged to further develop the creative possibilities that this new approach presents for them in a finished piece.
