African Folklore Embroidery

The Great Lakes African American Quilters Network will host a workshop on African Folklore Embroidery in January 2007.

The African Folklore Embroidery kits are the brainchild of Leora Raikin, a South African native who now lives in Southern California, who learned the craft of the Ndebele tribe from her mother. The basic kits are 11" and retail for $26. Super Kits are 17" and retail for $42. Squares from the kit can be used for pillows, quilts, purses and wallhangings. Enjoy!
