Makerspace Saturdays: Meditative Hand-Stitching

Join us at the library as Dr. Vincenne Revilla Beltran teaches Meditative Hand-Stitching!  This informative 1.5 hour workshop will introduce participants to Meditative Hand-Stitching enjoyed by thousands worldwide. The session will define Meditative Hand-Stitching, present its history, explain benefits, show examples, and how to get started in this mindfully based creative practice. Participants will learn the basics, become familiar with the tools, materials, supplies, and resources. Participants will have an opportunity to create a Meditative Hand-Stitching project of their own. This is an adult-focused program, but teens are welcome. No sewing or embroidery experience is required. Seating limited to 12 persons.  Materials will be provided, but if you have your own preferred fabric, embroidery floss, or other supplies feel free to bring them along!  

Dr. Vincenne Revilla Beltran, resident of O’Hara Township and Professor, Point Park University School of Education, is a Licensed Professional Counselor, and Board Certified Wellness Coach. Since childhood, she has enjoyed working with fibers and fabric and in recent years has enjoyed the creative and relaxing process of Meditative Hand-Stitching. Her research in the use of stitching for mental health and wellness has led her to explore the rich history of meditative stitching dating back to WWI in England. Through her years of research, she discovered there are healing benefits and life lessons in the fabric, threads, and stitches. Now, she brings this joyful, creative artform to members of our community as she shares this introductory session on slow stitch meditation.

A Holocaust Story of Love and Resilience

He was born in Bruchsal, Germany. She was born in Vienna, Austria. As hidden children, their paths crossed briefly in a French orphanage. Hear part of Kurt and Edith Leuchter's story of how they survived the Holocaust, fought Nazis in the French Resistance and made a new life in America shared by their daughter Deborah Stueber.

Stueber’s presentation features family photographs and documents, including her father’s passport with a swastika on it, letters from relatives in concentration camps and more.

“I think now more than ever it’s important to educate people on the Holocaust,” said Stueber, whose family is Jewish. “Not just students, but adults as well. … One day there will be no more Holocaust survivors left, and I’m their legacy. It’s my torch to bear, and I want to make sure their experience and story lives on forever.”

The Leuchters, who are retired and live in Palm Beach County, Fla., will participate virtually in a question-and-answer session following the presentation.

This event is open to teens 12+ and adults!

Debbie Leuchter Stueber was born and raised on Long Island and majored in elementary education at the State University of Oneonta, NY. She moved to Pittsburgh in 1991 and now calls it her hometown. She has been a volunteer Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh for the past 20 years and was chosen as their 2021 Volunteer of the Year.

Telling her parents' Holocaust experience to schools, universities and various organizations for the last several years has been Debbie's passion. She feels strongly that it's the responsibility of her generation and generations to come to carry on the survivors' legacy.

Makerspace Saturdays: Doodle and Paint an Animal Portrait

Jennifer Mercede's Example Portrait

Join Stephanie and Dave at the library as we show off Creativebug - your resource for thousands of video arts and crafts classes, all free with your library card!  We will be watching and following along with a one hour class by Jennifer Mercede - Doodle and Paint an Animal Portrait!  Supplies will be provided - we will be using acrylics and painting on wooden panels.  Please bring several pictures of the animal you'll be painting to choose from.  This program is limited to the first 12 people that register.  

In this fun and improvisational course, artist Jennifer Mercede shows you how to make expressive, exciting animal portraits in her signature style.  Self proclaimed fan of “scribbling, doodling, being silly and expressive” Jennifer walks you through how to pick the ideal pet portrait and using blind contour drawing to free you from the restrictions of perfection. You’ll learn how to intuitively pick colors and use lettering and playful mark-making to add textural depth to your portrait. 

Learn how to:
  • Select an ideal photograph for replicating
  • Abstract an image through blind contour
  • Use decorative mark-making to enhance a portrait
  • Use doodling to add detail and dimension to your work
  • Paint and draw on a wood panel
