Between lockdowns we did get to have some classes. While I couldn’t really demonstrate anything my verbal teaching skills got a jolly good workout and, dare I say it, improved!
Below are some snippets of class shots, all taken on my phone as the camera proved too heavy and wieldy to operate with my wrist. Commentary is taken from the top left of each collage and runs clockwise…..

I do hope you’ve enjoyed seeing what my students have been up to over the last couple of months. And how do I know about the updates? I’m continuing Video Class each Thursday so we can see progress and I can give advice and encouragement as needed. Such a good way to stay in touch. Hoping though, it won’t be too long until we can meet face to face.
Hope your sewing/knitting/crocheting is going well.
‘Til next time
