I'm going to start off with a few classes that are coming up....
A Needle Felting Class will be running Tuesday, February 28th from 6:30-8:30pm. I'm teaching this class through the wonderful organization, "Spark of Brilliance". Please click on their name for more info and see the flyer for more info too!
I'm also teaching a two part sock knitting class at Greenwood Quiltery! The socks are special because they have short-row heals and toes which mean you can easily re-knit them as they wear! This class runs Saturday, March 3rd and 10th from 10 - 11:30am. Please contact Greenwood Quiltery for more info!
Myself and BirDeye Family Programs are co-facilitating a March Break Puppet Making Camp at The Children's Art Factory from March12 - 16. It's going to be super fun! We recorded an as for the camp at CFRU, which was a very fun experience - so keep an ear open for my lovely voice for more info! Visit The Children's Art Factory for complete details.
It's getting close to the time where I head back up to Haliburton School for the Arts to start my second year of the Ontario Handweavers and Spinners Handspinning Program (that's a mouth full!). I'm currently working on my wheel assignment. At the end of the course last semester, each student was given a type of wheel to research, use and write a paper on. I was really excited because I had been really wanting to get an electric spinner. I got a Babe E-Spinner and it's been a learning curve. It's also been really fun. It's run by using a sewing machine peddle. I'm excited to try some different peddles to see if a peddle from a fancier sewing machine makes a difference to the sensitivity of the wheel.
Being Andrea and I are both vegan, she had some fun places to eat lined up! We went to a restaurant called, "VegOut" it was amazing! Here is the evidence, a piece of raw strawberry- key lime cheese cake and a cup of herbal tea - heaven!
