Written by 

A candlewicking workshop will be offered from 9:30 a.m. to noon Thursday, April 18, at the Jackson County Extension Office in Sylva.

Candlewicking is an old form of embroidery technique that used the soft-spun thread that was also used for making wicks for candles. Traditional embroidery stitches including French knots are usually done on cotton unbleached muslin. Extension and Community Association member Diane Herring will be teaching this pillow-sized craft technique.

Cost is $5. 828.586.4009.
