Always Remember to Give Back

With the current downturn of the economy – every single one of us has been effected. Working in the fashion industry is no small feat during these tough times. With wonderful boutiques like Eidolon and Flirt Brooklyn we are able to stay afloat.

But as Julia Cameron says in the Artist’s Way – always ask WHAT’s NEXT! And what’s next is TEACHING –

Since August, I have been teaching crochet to the community of Flatbush, requested by the Brooklyn Public Library.

The amazing young people and women of the Flatbush community come with skill of crocheting from Trinidad, Jamaica, Grenada and Nevis. Primarily trained in working with crochet thread – their work is marvelous. Many of the women read patterns and worked in simple yarns found in your neighborhood fabric shop.

My students shared their experiences as I shared knowledge of types of yarn and basic stitches. Whey showed me items they had worked on and raised questions about technique and function.

These classes are ongoing and best of all they are FREE.

Located in Brooklyn New York, on Linden Boulevard, right down the block from Flatbush Avenue. Take the Q train to Church Avenue, get off the rear of the train and walk three blocks over – turn right and you are there :))
