May Program … Reba Worotikan, “How Batiks are made, East Meets West”

May 15 @ 10:00 AM 12:00 PM

Reba Worotikan was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. She grew up watching her mother sew and soon was sewing quilts and clothing herself. In 1988, she met her future husband, Albert – a fellow college student who had recently moved to the United States from his home country of Indonesia. After they got married, the two moved back to Indonesia. This is when she first became introduced to Batik fabric. She was amazed by the intricacy of detail and the vibrancy of the colors. In 2013, Reba founded Majestic Batiks – mixing her love of sewing with her love of Indonesia. Working directly with local artisans throughout Indonesia, Reba has been able to bring the vibrancy and beauty of Indonesia to the United States. She has found that being fluent in the Indonesian language and being familiar with the culture has given her the ability to seamlessly manage Majestic Batiks. Her passion for Majestic Batiks is rooted in her love for Indonesian culture and her desire to share that beauty with the rest of the world. Currently, Majestic Batiks is sold in quilt shops throughout the United States.  As a small family-owned company, our goal is provide access to Majestic Batiks worldwide. Be sure to find and support your local quilt shop carrying Majestic Batiks Shop Local .  If you prefer to shop online browse options here Shop Online . Let’s pass on this time-old tradition to the generations to come and make quality quilts to last a lifetime.
