There isn't a better way to share your passion for fibre arts than to teach others the craft. Seeing the excitement on my students faces as they finally throw the shuttle across their warp is an incredible and rewarding experience. To me, that is the best part about teaching - to be able to share the excitement with my students over and over again.
Over the years I have studied and learned many different crafts including knitting, crochet, sewing, machine embroidery, quilting, spinning and weaving. In the past I was employed at a quilting store where I taught lessons on embroidery machines and the accompanying software.
Today weaving has become my ultimate passion and my main focus is to teach students how to weave on a floor loom, but I'm always available for private lessons in other areas. I have been weaving for over 5 years and was taught by a extremely talented mentor and friend. Currently I'm furthering my education by studying the OHS Weaving Certificate Course Program offered by the Ontario Handweavers and Spinners .
I have practiced fibre arts my entire life and I am honoured to have an opportunity to pass on my knowledge and help create that passion in others.
