Prayer flag workshop
Sharon Vandermay, president of the Maine Modern Quilt Guild, will lead a prayer flag workshop, from 10 a.m.-noon, Saturday, Nov. 19, at Norumbega Yurts, 380 Woodman Road. Prayer flags are created with simple designs and hung outside – preferable in a high location. It is said that the positive energy of the flags, coupled with the natural energy of the wind, quietly harmonizes the environment, impartially increasing happiness and good fortune among all living things.
Workshop participants will make their own squares for a prayer flag. The cost is $20, and materials will be provided. To register, contact Julie Fralich at 653-4823 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
