Cultural History - Minimum age 8 with accompanying adult

Do you have the Winter Break blahs and miss the fun of Walker Ranch Heritage Days? At this virtual program we'll teach you how to make the basic cross-stitch as well as how to combine individual stitches into rows for a completed piece. In between demos we'll share information on Walker Ranch and the history of needle arts. Everyone in your family can take part, and feel free to wear your pioneer wear for a bit more fun! Participants under age 8 should team up with an adult. Each person/team will need: -A square of basic cotton/linen fabric -A needle (if you are a beginner, look for a wide eye to make it easier to thread) -Embroidery thread -Marker or pen that will show up on the fabric -Scissors Only one registration per family is needed, although it would be helpful to know if children are taking part. The Zoom link will be shared the day before the program via email. Please note that registration closes January 3 so program leaders have accurate signup numbers to prepare for and so that no one last minute misses out on getting the Zoom link.

I’m a Colorado native; I grew up in Golden and moved to Greeley to attend UNC. I earned my undergraduate and MA degrees in history. That led me to museums, where I’ve worked for over 20 years. As of December of 2010 I’m excited to have Boulder County Parks and Open Space as my workplace. There’s fun, constant learning, and variety in being the Cultural History Program Coordinator; I get to work with amazing and talented colleagues and volunteers as we share the history of the area.
