It will be held in the classroom of the Fuller Lodge Art Center 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Registration with a deposit for $70 must be received by Feb. 15.
The cost of the two-day session will be less than $90; the exact amount depends on expenses and number of participants.

This new form of expression incorporates Jacobean style crewel embroidery, Romanian Point Lace, golden coils and beads.
The Romanian Point Lace that is a large part of this design includes crocheted cord and fancy needle-lace stitches.
Sylvia Murariu, a native of Romania now living in Oregon, learned this traditional form of lace making as a child. Over the years her collection of stitches has grown to more than four hundred. She has authored books and taught the art for a number of years at venues across the country.
