Italian Language Meeting – October 28, 2020
October 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
When: October 28, 2020
Speaker: Francesca Carmichael
Topic: Italian Linens and Hand-stamping in Romagna
There will be a “social hour” beginning at 7 pm. The presentation will start at 7:30.
Francesca Carmichael will speak about the hand-stamped, block print linens typical of the Romagna region of Italy. Francesca is the proprietor of Italian Linen Store ( http://www.italianlinenstore.com), a “molto italiano” store that is located in Bellevue. Its Italian hand-stamped linens for the home exemplify the antique craft that has continued to the present day with the products from Stamperia Bertozzi that, using traditional stamping techniques, offers a full range of decorative linens, from the classic to the contemporary.
Born and raised in Cremona, Francesca has lived in various countries and continents in the course of her life, beginning with her time at University, in Venice, then the Middle East, France and so forth, until she landed in Seattle in 2004. Here she opened her first shop in Woodinville importing from Italy antique furniture, hand-painted ceramics, decorative paper and stationery to textiles, a gradual and natural progression that compliments her own artistic nature.
