After a long hiatus from my blog, I have exciting news! I am pleased to announce that as of November 1st 2016 I have become a free agent! I am now a self-employed independent instructor, provider of services, and designer!
This is something I have planned to do for sometime and things have come together at this time to make it happen! I will be teaching knitting, crochet, all about yarns & fibers, spinning, fiber preparation, beginning rigid heddle and pin loom weaving, felting, as well as offering pattern and yarn consultations, repair, finishing and blocking services.
I am contracted with Jimmy Beans Wool, where I have been working in the brick and mortar retail shop for the past 7 years, to provide classes and walk-in help. For those of you are used to visiting me in the brick & mortar store, you will still have access to my services just as before with the only changes being now ALL of my time can be devoted to helping you with your projects and teaching you new skills!
While I have been away from my blog I have been adding new skills! I am now also a certified instructor of Medical Qigong! Qigong is a movement & mindfulness practice much like Tai Chi but using easily remembered, repeatable exercises to bring natural balance back to your body, mind, and spirit.Qigong can be a great compliment to your crafting for reducing both mental and physical stress.
I am available to teach at other locations. Please contact me for scheduling and to work out details.

Here’s to new beginnings!
Terry, I was in the store today after you left, and I saw the beaded shawl pinned up on the wall in the classroom. Gus said he thinks you’re going to be offering a class on it. Unfortunately I live in So Cal – too far to commute for classes. What is the name of the pattern, and what yarn did you use?

Sorry for the delay responding! The pattern is Sweet Dreams by Boo Knits. It is available through Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sweet-dreams-17
The shop sample was made with Hand Maiden Seasilk using the Miyuki trilobed beads.
Great post!!! Hugs! xoxo
