UKRAINIAN EMBROIDERY

Demonstrating Artists

Sofiya Chukhlib & The Utah Ukrainian Association

Friday & Saturday only, Canopy D

Ukrainian folk artist Sofiya Chukhlib came to Utah a few years ago to live with her daughter and help out with her children. Like many Ukrainian women of her generation, she learned to make vyshyvanka, or embroidery, at a young age. She has used that skill over the years both to decorate clothing and on the special handmade linens that accompany icons in church altars for weddings and other special occasions.
