Swedish Christmas goat made out of straw used as a decoration during the holidays. There is a giant one built in Gävle, Sweden, every year and this year ASI has added its own oversized julbock to the collection.
Hur många julbock har du hemma? How many straw Christmas goats do you have at home?

Sew and decorate your own portable sewing kit in the style of a Northern Swedish marsma or sypåse with folk artist Natalie Norman. This modern style sewing tool caddy is a common needlework project in Sweden and is a practical tool for anyone who practices hand stitching on the go. While older designs of these kits drew closely from the efficient construction of portable Sami sewing kits, the pattern was shared, adapted, and modified over time across Northern Swedish communities and now is typically made in wool with many options for further personalization and embellishment. In this one day class, students will work on adding patchwork and embroidered embellishments to make their kits their own. This class is appropriate for all levels of hand sewers, but if you are less experienced you may not finish the project in class. Suitable for ages 18+.
A $10 materials fee is paid to the instructor and covers project materials. Students should bring their own fabric shears, a thimble and/or magnification if you use it. If desired, students may bring special fabric remnants, buttons, or braid for personalizing their kits; several fabric options will also be provided by the instructor.
