Christ is Risen! A Ukrainian Easter.

 Christ is Risen! Христос Воскрес

We hope you had a blessed Easter! May God bless our customers and families during this Easter season. Ukrainians have a very colorful and bright Easter. Most of Lent for us is spent preparing for Easter both in prayer and crafts/cooking. We spend many hours embroidering our vyshyvanka or rushnyk cloths, making intricate Easter eggs, baking, and wearing our vyshyvanka.

Embracing Tradition

Ukrainians take pride in their Easter traditions, passing them down from generation to generation. The intricate embroidery on the vyshyvanka and rushnyk cloths symbolize the beauty and richness of Ukrainian culture. The process of creating these pieces is a labor of love, with each stitch carrying a piece of history and tradition. It's also believed that embroidery should be done while praying, which makes Lent the perfect time to embroider!
