This Interwoven Stories embroidery workshop on Friday, November 17 at 7PM comes on the heels of PUC’s headlining 2023-24 Healing with Music series event with long-time collaborators of Weymar’s—Suleika Jaouad, NY Times bestselling author and creator of The Isolation Journals, and musician Jon Batiste.
