  1. Hi,
    I took your last scarf in a day class at the Botanic Gardens.
    Recently bought a “pre-owned” Nilus LeCleric and would like to have a private lesson for my husband and myself at our home.
    Please let me know if that is possible and if you would be interested in teaching us.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Jackie

  2. I would love to learn from you about the art of weaving. If you are taking on private students I would love to be one. Please contact me.

  3. Hello, I like your work. I’m an artist working in Memphis,TN. I want to learn more about handmade books, binding, folding, and sewing techniques. Is there any classes in the Memphis or surrounding area that I could learn mire about art book binding.
    Thank you
    Terry

  6. I have been asked to weave a tallit for a gentleman. HELP! Can you help me as I want to make this a wonderful prayer shawl. Thank you so much…Charlotte in Texas

    • Hi Charlotte. The best weaving resource for tallit weaving is the book “Weaving for Worship” by Joyce Harter and Lucy Brusic. Also, if you can find a back issue of Handwoven magazine from November/December 1998, the entire issue is devoted to liturgical weaving with clear instructions for weaving a tallit. Good luck!
