Great taster for learning the cross stitching of Yucatán style. All in Spanish, and I didn’t understand much of the host, but we used iTranslate at times to understand each other and it worked ok!

This was a great experience. I participated with my mom. There were 3 of us in the group. Although my mom couldn’t speak Spanish I was able to translate and since it’s a very hands on activity there were no language issues. Mayra was very inviting and attentive. We learned a lot!

Mayra is a multi-disciplinary artist, and she teaches right in her studio. It was fun to learn a new skill, and interesting to learn more about the arts, especially textile arts, of Mexico. She was patient, knowledgeable, and flexible - when I was more interested in a different kind of embroidery than what I had signed up for, she taught me that one instead.
