2013 Guest Instructor, NANCY SHRIBER -
"My sewing practice today is one of coming full circle. I now find myself in almost the same position I was all those years ago as my grandmother offered encouragement, knowledge, and patience. Being on the other side of the table, now the instructor, I have a personal goal of creating a similar atmosphere of encouragement, kindness, and sharing what works for me with my students. Waiting for the moment of recognition from a student as they try Sashiko stitching for the first time; watching as they ease into their personal space and realize that this stitching technique is not only easy, it may be more than a simple running stitch - this is what I do and I love it". Nancy

Wondering what to wear?
Bring comfortable expressive clothes you feel good in, and feel free to dress up or down...fun things you love and maybe don't always give yourself permission to wear. Include layers. In a community of fellow fiber artists, you can express yourself in many fun ways. You might want to include casual clothes for morning walks and an apron or t-shirt for surface design. "
