News: (updated 16 February 2016)

I have promised myself that 2016 is the year of catching up on personal things, such as home renovation, getting that fire pit built, finalising things that have been simmering on the back burner, and working on boring very-overdue paperwork that has been screaming my name far too long. It is the year to reconnect with my neglected family and friends, take my home schooled child on some adventurous road trips, make our veggie garden thrive, focus on my art, and take some time for myself.

 



Over the past six years I have given 110% of my time and energy to my work, so unfortunately it means having to cut back tremendously this year and there will be some regular events that I sadly cannot attend. In order to compromise, I have given up my booth at the majority of the annual fiber festivals and will be attending in the capacity as instructor only. Rest assured that workshop students will still be able to purchase materials to take home, but it will be at the conclusion of classes only, not for the entire duration of the festivals.

 

 

I'm still taking bookings for my How To Train Your Fiber workshop or other fibery weekend experiences at private farms, but for 2016 I will be limiting my time to only one weekend per month for education. Therefore, if you have been considering hosting a workshop on your farm for your friends, your customers or your association, you can check available dates here. I urge you to make your reservation as soon as possible to secure a date. Please email me for a link to the cost/requirements pages for hosts.
