Guest Speaker

SewBatik

“The SewBatik road crew, Diane and Bruce Magidson, will be traveling to the Red Barn Sewing & Yarn Center on June 26th to put on a great presentation about the tradition and history of Indonesian batik-making. There will be slides and video to create an in-depth explanation of the two basic methods of batik production, i.e. hand drawn batik and hand stamped batik.  Attendees will get an entertaining and intimate view of the nuts and bolts of the various processes that result in amazing fabric. You can examine batik-making tools and samples from Bruce’s stash that he has collected during his many visits to Indonesia. The presentation lasts approximately 1-hour with Q & A to follow.

Exciting SewBatik products will be offered for sale before and after the presentations.
