Gilda's Club "Comfort Shawl" Workshop on Aug. 26

Aug. 24, 2009

Inspiring and thoughtful custom-designed comfort shawls will be featured at Gilda’s Club on Aug. 26. Marge Eiseman, artist and storyteller, will present “Comfort Shawls,” a workshop and demonstration. She uses music, sharing, story-telling and poetry to help people contemplate loss and adversity.


When Marge Eiseman’s son, Baki Muchin, died in 2005, thousands of people were mourning too. Some uttered surprise and compassion, shared their own stories, or made food. People did what they could do at the time, and they did what was appropriate for them.


When people are faced with another’s sadness, grief or loss, they often don’t know what to say. They remember their own losses, and sometimes worry about making a comment that may cause further sadness.


As a symbol of support, Marge’s friends gave her the lasting creation of a “grief shawl” that has become the inspiration for a program of music, story-telling, and poetry that she brings to others.


Come to Gilda’s Club on Aug. 26 from 6-8 p.m. to learn how to embrace the cycle of love and loss through “Comfort Shawls.” Gilda’s Club is located at 4050 N. Oakland Ave., Shorewood. Call 414-962-8201 or visit
