never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.

Upcoming Workshops

Introduction to Punch Needle Embroidery

Saturday September 21, 2019
Needles Studio, Palo Alto

Come spend a relaxing Saturday afternoon finding out why punch needle is the most talked about new craft of 2019. If you already embroider or knit, you’ll enjoy exploring learning a new way to “paint with yarn” on fabric. If you’ve never embroidered or done other yarn-crafting, you’ll learn a small handcraft that can easily become an addiction.


Teaching Philosophy

I do more than teach creative skills; I support my students through the entire creative process. In a workshop with me, students will be encouraged to tap into their own inner creativity - unleashing and unlocking it and then translating it into whatever media is being taught.

Students in my workshops can expect to dive deeply into the messy process of creativity. They can expect to be fully supported by myself and other participants as they explore their own creative spirit and make a piece that is 100% their own.

At the end of one of my workshops, students can expect to walk out with more than a finished piece. When you take a workshop with me, you will walk away with the skills and confidence to continue creating unique pieces in the future.

What Students Are Saying

“You want creative freedom, good humor, some singing and tons of skill learning with great style and approachability? That’s her!”
- Jen W.

“Your teaching style provided the perfect blend of structure/creativity (the way you provided examples, and also space to get folks out of their comfort zones and come up with an original design), and regular checkins to make sure we were all progressing.”
-Lauren G.
