Slovak Wheat Weaving for Adults (Registration Required)
@ Cedar Mill Library
Aug 1 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
weaving has been traced back to ancient times and has always been associated

a spirit resided in the grain so that at harvest the last handful of choice
grain was gathered and was woven into a thanksgiving symbol to be carefully
preserved and hung in the home until the following spring. In this free workshop for adults, aged 16 and
up, students will complete one or two small heart shaped projects with
assistance from instructor Daniela Mahoney. Space is limited to 25 participants. Beginning July 1, please register by calling the
