2015 teaching schedule

photo by kathy bautze

i teach sewing, patternmaking, crochet, embroidery, block printing, and more! mostly i teach at various locations in the Hudson Valley/Catskills area of New York (about 2 hours north of NYC), which is where i live. a few times a year, i come down to NYC for a few days to teach, usually at Purl Soho. you can find all of my classes below. please contact the venue for registration and payment. all classes require a minimum of 4 students, so please register early to avoid cancellation.

i also travel to teach at retreats and shops around the US, so i may be coming to a venue near you! this page will be updated frequently, so please check back often. i hope to see you in class!

if you can’t find me in person, i also teach online classes with Creativebug. you can see what i offer, and watch a video about me, on my teacher page. these also make great reference material if you’ve taken a class with me and need to review!
