Material Girls – Mendocino County CA

What a wonderful way to finish up teaching for the year. Just take a minute and imagine teaching on a vineyard in Northern California to 20 wonderfully creative students, great homemade food and sharing this all with my sister Wendy. What a life to be able to share my passion and still be able to meet wonderful like minded people and experience great places in this country. Thanks so much Kim and Helen for the lovely week.
Kim made sure each student did the required homework prior to class so we could spend the days embellishing the pieces with wonderful fibers and stitches. We also incorporated embossed pieces of hand dyed velvet as well as dimensional stitches. Each student worked on multiple layers of texture.

What a great year of teaching! I returned home to bitterly cold temperatures and snow. I am now looking forward to some time at home with family. Time to snuggle up and do some stitching.
