Hungry for some embroidery history? EGA National will be offering the following free lecture to EGA members, but you MUST register to participate and the lecture is open to the first 100 participants, so mark your calendar for January 11th to secure your place!

Lecturer: Toni Gerdes
Date: February 13, 2021 at 1PM Eastern
Registration starts: January 11, 2021 at 1PM Eastern
Attendance will be limited to 100 participants on a first come, first serve basis.

Even with great adversity, you can’t keep the artistic, creative spirit down, but also, that creative spirit actually thrives during adversity to help people through hard times and to bring people together. This is what I show, during my 60-minute lecture based on the art that has been discovered from the time of World War II and the Japanese Internment Camps. Through a wonderful Power Point presentation, you will see many of these art pieces and the people who created them. You will see pictures of the various camps and learn what the camp life was like. The art was so varied, furniture, embroidery, crochet, knitting, quilts, wood carving, sculpture, drawings, prints, paintings, jewelry, Bonsai, Bon-kei, weaving, basketry, musical instruments, and other art forms. You will see it all and learn what happened to the art and where it is today.
