New Classes at the Craft Guild

Made it through Christmas -- here is a picture of my sister and I with our two dogs on Christmas Eve. We had fun. Even though this fall was a whirlwind, I love all of the new people that doing this work brings into my life. Thank you all for being there and for your support!


I am busy making samples for the many new classes I will be teaching in the winter/spring session at the Craft Guild of Dallas. There will be needle felting where we will explore types of wool to use, how to make a 3d shape (see the cute round shapes and the nest -- good for making jewelry), and some flat needle felting
techniques; nuno felting scarves both basic and advanced (we will learn to make fringes and ruffles), and also my beloved nuvo felting in which we combine the needles and wet felting and make a small highly embellished piece. I taught both the basic scarves class and the nuvo class in December and they were both so much fun!

I will also be exploring some new territory by co-teaching with David Lawrence. David is a master bookbinder. We will be playing with some new surfaces for bookbinding including silk paper, lutradur, a book with a cloth/tissue paper cover and using felt to make a cover for a small photo album. Very fun altered books and lots of techniques covered in this class!

Later in the spring I will be offering an art quilting class (with some help from my friends of course!)

You can check out the new classes at the Craft Guild on their new website (way to go guys!) at http://www.craftguildofdallas.com/fiber_arts.php There are pictures there and I will try to post pictures here as I get things completed.

Cheers! Let me know if you have questions, I love to help.
