Judith Retreat Oct 2016“I think I may actually be able to design my own patterns now – never would have expected it. … the class has been so very beneficial. I liked seeing what other participants designed – very helpful.”

“Loved learning the color wheel. I’ve never been able to make good use of one in the past. I appreciate all the individual help; enjoyed seeing what others had done. Liked being able to take the time to practice design. … Big things for me were the process for design, the math … and the time to practice. Am so glad I came, it was even better than I’d expected.

I went to the first retreat and learned so much that I took my designing skills to a new level. An it was loads of fun, too! So I decided to come to the second iteration to bring my skills to an even higher level and the second one was even better than the first! “

“This was an incredible weekend. I knew I loved doing kumihimo, but was limited to what I copied from your books or patterns. I could only copy, but now I can create! … Your teaching style and detail is perfect for learning.
