Have I mentioned that I started teaching again? Well, I’m excited to say that I am and I LOVE it! I forgot just how much I enjoy the interaction of class and seeing people connect with others that share the sewing bug.

One thing that I’ve learned from teaching at the store level is that most creative types are hands on visual learners. Now, that’s not to say that we don’t enjoy a good book every now and again, I’m just saying that most of us seem to be more on the visual side of life.
