FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

You can bring me a project you'd like to create, or let me do the work and find a great craft to get started with! I do almost every type of craft, so the only limit is your imagination!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Prior to being a textile designer for many years in New York City, I owned my own mural company and also studied scenic design and costume design for Theatre, receiving my BFA from UCF. I am always studying trends and new crafts so I stay current!


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Each class is unique, so they are based on cost of materials and length of class! I always aim to charge as little as I can. because I understand money doesn't grow on trees!


How did you get started teaching?

After years in the textile design business, I decided to take my love for teaching and craft it (pun intended) into my perfect career! I opened up this past November and have been doing great in the private party arena! 


What types of students have you worked with?

From 3 to 85! Beginners to craft connoisseurs!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I just had a class of ladies making 4' welcome signs for their front porches! One of the crafters brought a salvaged brass anchor she wanted to incorperate and we all had a blast making memories and a sturdy wooden sign for them to cherish! 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Patience is key! Sunny smiles and a helping hard go well with learning a new skill, and I pride myself on making sure that each and every crafter feel welcomed and creative during our sessions! I would want you to feel that too!


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think about your physical abilities before approaching any craft that may involve hammers or other heavy tools, and have an open mind!! Sometimes you "think" you can't do something, only to surprise yourself in the end!
