Teaching at Rock Paper Scissors in Montclair, NJ!

I'm thrilled to announce a new opportunity to teach regularly at one of my LQS's, Rock Paper Scissors (15 Bloomfield Ave., Montclair, NJ). The ladies there always make me feel welcome, and it's way too easy to get lost in the shop. :) This semester, I'll be there often! It's in northeastern NJ and just a short train ride from NYC - please join me! :)

I'm teaching my favorite Orange Peels and Improv from 7-9 PM on October 14 and 21. Here's a blog post from the past about the class, and here's when I taught it at Mid-Atlantic Mod Retreat earlier this year. I owe you a blog post on this summer's class from Pennington Quilt Works. Come have a blast in this class spread over two days!

A new class: Wonky Cross  (a great introduction to improvisation!) on Oct. 28! You'll learn the technique and start a wall-hanging. Here's the sample, which is in progress and will be finished soon! I'm using solids and Modern Neutrals by Zen Chic, all found at Rock Paper Scissors. I'll post more about it when it's done. In the meanwhile, if you'd like to learn, feel free to sign up for the class!

 I'm also teaching  Intermediate Free Motion Quilting: Curves on Nov. 18. It's both a skill-building class and a project class. I can't WAIT!

We'll learn pebbles, swirls, and loops, and make a table topper!

Finally, I'll be teaching Tweens and Teens Sewing I and II (Monday and Wednesday afternoons starting NEXT WEEK, Sept. 30), which has always been a dream of mine. I've taught grades 6-12 in public schools and assistant-taught a sewing class with 10-16 year olds before, and I'm so ready. Over 8 weeks, we'll sew up bags, PJ pants, pillows, and skirts, according to the class level {here's the description for 1 and here's 2}. If you have or know a tween/teen who yearns to sew, send them my way!

If you'd like to reserve your spot, you can call Rock Paper Scissors at (973)337-6759. Space is limited, so call now! Make sure to check out all their great fall classes here!

Let's sew together (in person)! :)
