The Purple Thread

Teaching Projects


I love to travel and meet new people! Many of my designs have been inspired by women I have met at retreats where I have been a student or teacher. My teaching projects are all available for your shop, guild, or group to build an event around them. I have also designed new projects for special events. Contact me and we can have some great fun planning!
