Three pretty hibiscus flowers, nestled comfortably in a bed of leaves and ferny-foliage. Each hibiscus has its own color combination, together they look gorgeous. The ruffled edges around the hibiscus flowers feature a NEW stitch I have named the “Cast-On  Cast-On”, a blend of cast-ons using one thread and two needles. The hibiscus pistils are stitched using a knotted variation of my “Two-Tone Drizzle” technique. The wavy-edge appearance on the leaves is achieved by using a combination of blanket stitch and cast-ons. We will learn all these techniques in class, plus practice a petal or two. A doodle cloth will be provided for each student. Stitches included: Blanket stitch, stem stitch, lazy daisy stitch, cast-on, bullion, “Cast-on Cast-on”, “Two Tone Drizzle”.

Twenty-nine years of teaching, condensed. This is knowledge I have gained from teaching many students over the years. This class is for teachers of all levels. We will also discuss of the process of learning from the student’s perspective.  This class will be taught/demonstrated using some of the beginning stitches, with hints on HOW to teach ANY stitch.  We will explore the nuances of providing the input and information a student needs to succeed. This class will alternate between hints for teaching and the process of interpreting your student’s needs.  I will cover both in-person and online instruction methods and requirements. We’ll discuss what I recommend that a teacher needs to do, have on hand, and provide before, during, and after classes. I will be sharing some learning experiences I have had and encourage the students to share theirs also!  Let’s learn from each other!
