Coming up in June at Loop, we are excited to announce the dates of the Miga De Pan embroidery classes! Loop is honoured to host internationally renowned artist Adriana Torres, who is coming all the way from Argentina to teach and inspire.

We are also looking forward to hosting a mini Miga De Pan Pop-Up-Shop at the same time, 5th – 7th June!
