Weekend Workshops: Valentine’s Day Embroidery on Saturday, February 4, 11:00am - 12:00pm
Exchanging gifts with loved ones for Valentine’s Day is a centuries-old tradition. On Saturday, February 4th from 11:00 – 12:00, the Wilton Historical Society will offer an opportunity for kids to create their very own Valentine’s Day-themed gift.
During this program, participants will design and embroider their own ‘Valentines’ muslin pillows to give out to friends or family on the fourteenth. Museum Educator Catherine Lipper will discuss Valentine’s Day and its historical significance, in addition to the uses of embroidery in Colonial Times. At the end of the workshop, each participant will be given a heart-shaped sugar cookie to decorate and take home. Don’t miss out on this sweet celebration!
