teaching in 2015




i’ve just updated my teaching page with what i’ve got planned thus far for teaching in 2015. i’m always updating this page so check back in as the year progresses to see where i’ll be. last year was a new record for me; i traveled to California, Colorado, New Hampshire, Tennessee, Maine and Texas to teach. that was a bit much, as i really am a homebody! i’ll be taking it a bit easier this year travel-wise, as i’ve got some projects i need to hunker down on…

which means i am extra glad to now have a wonderful place to teach sewing and patternmaking locally! i’m teaching Befriend Your Sewing Machine (2/7) and Make Your Own Leggings (2/14) in February (heads up: February starts on Sunday!) at Sew Woodstock. if you haven’t been to this warm and lovely shop yet, you really must visit. i’m also teaching a series of crochet workshops at my favorite sheep farm/LYS, White Barn Farm, beginning 2/8.

a fun new development is that i’m teaching a 7-week Design and Sew Your Own Clothes as part of the Saturday Arts Lab program at SUNY New Paltz, for ages 14 through adult. it’s rare that i get to teach such a long-format class, so i’m excited to have the opportunity! we’ll be drafting patterns, sewing and fitting muslins and then making final versions of a skirt and shift dress. starts 2/21; reserve your spot while there is one!

    Happy to see you will be at Lucky Star in 2015 — my plan is to be there too! Hope we get to be roomies again — I’ll take the bunk by the BR this year!

  2. I need to start campaigning my local shops (Needlework in Hamilton or the workroom in Toronto) to bring you to town this year. In the meantime, I’ll keep my eyes open for places where we might overlap.

  3. aw thanks claudia! i do hope to get back to the workroom sometime soon, and i’ll look into Needlework too! hope our paths will cross ;n)

  4. yes me too Donna! can’t wait to see all that you’ve crocheted by November!
