Japanese Embroidery in Chicago

Registration for the Japanese Embroidery studio with Karen L. Plater on September 27 – 30, 2010, in the Hyde Park area of Chicago, IL is now open!

A registration form is at the bottom of this post.

This is a mixed level studio with an emphasis on the traditional Phases of Japanese embroidery. Please contact Marjorie Holme /Moonsilk Stitches if you wish additional information.

The class will meet at Regent’s Park apartment complex, 5020 South Lake Shore Drive in Hyde Park for all four days. The class runs 9:30A-3:30P daily, with an hour for lunch.

We are limiting studio to ten students so that Karen can provide enough individual attention to each person. Places in the class are first-come, first served. Your registration will be confirmed by phone or email. My comments on our most recent class are here.

If you have begun a Phase piece at the Japanese Embroidery Center and wish to continue working on it under Karen Plater's supervision, you will be welcome. Please contact Marjorie Holme and she will put you in touch with Karen.

Anyone registering after the class is full will be placed on a waiting list and will receive notification of wait-list status. Therefore, if you register and then find you cannot attend, please notify us as soon as possible. Per the class policies and procedures:Full refunds will be provided if notification is given at least 60 days before the class. For this class, the deadline for a full refund is JULY 31,2010. Partial refunds may be available with less than 6 weeks notice. If the class fails to meet the minimum number of students, full refunds will be made to all registrants.

Instruction fees for Studio time will be $40/day plus a daily Chicago fee of $30 (which covers the room rental) for a total of $70 per day.

The two day ‘Three Happiness’ class costs $150 TOTAL including supplies. Please let me know if you have any questions about class logistics.

Pre-planning is essential so that reservations for the classroom and air fare for Karen can be secured in a timely fashion. Please commit to this opportunity and send in your reservation by the deadline.
