Mid-Atlantic Fiber Association 2019 Summer Conference

I’m thrilled to be teaching a 2 and a half day seminar at this year’s MAFA conference! It will be held June 27 -30, 2019 at Millersville University in Millersville, PA. The conference is a great gathering of fiber people, and features a lot of fun in addition to the workshops. Check out the offerings for this wonderful seminar at:

Red Stone Glen

I’m very happy to be teaching a variety of temari classes at the amazing Red Stone Glen Fiber Arts Center. Nestled in gorgeous Newberry Township, PA (just north of York), the glen is THE place to study fiber arts. Founder Sara Bixler and her renown father Tom Knisley are the fiber artist resident teachers, and the variety of classes held here year round is incredible. Red Stone Glen also features student lodging and a fiber store! Find out more information at their website:

You will need basic temari skills for this class, and you will be delighted to leave with an in-depth knowledge of both techniques. Upcoming class dates: TBD
