Japanese embroidery is an embroidery technique that goes back more than 1600 years. Initially only used to decorate items used during religious ceremonies, it gradually took on a more artistic purpose. Betty Hill will demonstrate her art and discuss her experience at the Kurani Kai School of Embroidery in Japan.
