I love teaching: I get to share what I know about a craft we both love. Helping my students understand a technique or explore a new area is a joyful experience. Finding just the right words or pictures, analogy or metaphor, or even physical illustration (the Dance of Stitches in the Round) that makes the light bulb come on in students’ heads—what could be more fun than that??? My students continually inspire me to create new and improve current classes as well as find better ways to teach them. I feel privileged to be able to meet crafters from all over the country since I began teaching at STITCHES Expos in 2005.
