Something I've been wanting to do for a long time is write about all the craft workshops happening in Santa Cruz and I finally got to do it. Here is it!
Wait, what? How is it January 10 already?
On the 20th, I'm heading to Marin to teach at the beautiful crafting, creativity and all around inspiring space :: The Makery.
Last time was so fun-- everyone was really friendly, and we had lots of laughs. Jane, the owner, does an amazing job at making everyone feel welcome, and the whole event feels like a special occasion. Sign up here!
2/11 Stitch a Cute Cactus. One of my all time favorite workshops. Learn embroidery and take home a finished project that'll impress all your friends.
2/18 Macrame plant hangers. I got totally addicted to these and it definitely upped my plant game. You'll learn basic macrame knots and make something really cool and useful.
I've been embroidering for over 5 years, here and there, just for fun, but I've fallen in love with making these cute cacti and I am going to show you how you can make one too!
The workshop will be Saturday April 22 from 1:00-3:00 at Wallflower Boutique in Downtown Santa Cruz. If you would like to sign up please click here.

Today I taught a basics weaving workshop to a group of wonderful, friendly and amazingly creative women. They so completely embraced my love of simplicity and possibility and made the day incredibly awesome.
I always provide lots of different yarns so that everyone can find something that speaks to them, and it is fascinating to see what colors and techniques people gravitate towards. The diversity of the finished projects always blows me away. Today we added a special twist by providing some gorgeous fabric strips and the results were really beautiful.
A huge thank you to un moment s.v.p for providing the beautiful space.
Hope to see you at a workshop soon!
I just received word that my weaving workshop is sold out with a waiting list! I'm so excited to meet everyone tomorrow and especially to see what they create. I really hope they love weaving as much as I do, or at the very least, have a lot of fun, connect with others and learn something cool.
