Evening Needlepointers: The Beaded Bandolier Bags of the Ojibwe; Designer Highlight

  • Thu, November 18, 2021
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Bandolier bags are the large, heavily beaded shoulder bags made and worn by the Ojibwe of northern Minnesota. The Minnesota History Center has one of the largest collections of these works, and in 2017 published Marcia G. Anderson’s book, A Bag Worth a Pony. Using the book as a primary source, Denise Beusen will summarize the history, forms, structure, and motifs that give these works their lasting visual appeal.

Tonight's highlighted designer is Gail Sirna, Before the meeting, go through your stash and completed works and be prepared to show us Gail's designs you've worked on.

This group meets monthly on the 4th Tuesday from 7 pm-9 pm.

LOCATION:  We are temporarily meeting by video conference due to COVID-19.  A link to connect to it is on the Member Resources page.
