I had a great time teaching a textile class to my sister’s drawing class in October! She did a two week project with them, and I was privileged to assist on four days the first week. Each high school student designed their own 8″ image, then created it in fabric on a colored 12″ felt backing. Of the 45 kids, maybe one or two had done any previous hand stitching. At the end of the fortnight there were 45 amazingly original, colorful, and fun creations, and 45 very pleased kids! Did I mention we were dealing with a class of 45?! I can’t believe how attentive they were!
So that’ the first photo above – me and my dear sister and fellow Dan Springer, Donna Mercer. The other pictures are new dolls and creatures that will be with me tomorrow at the Covenant Woods Christmas Market – noon til 7 pm. Grab your winter coat and come on by!
