Let’s Craft Together

I’m back from vacation and gearing up to teach some classes here in West Michigan through Forest Hills Community Education. Next month I’m teaching art embroidery classes for those who want to learn how to turn kid’s art into a family heirloom (like I did with Abby’s monster drawings above.) In May, I’m teaching an art journaling class for women looking to document daily life and rediscover what they really want out of life. You can read more about the classes and sign up here. No prior art or craft experience is necessary.

In June, I’m going to teach an English paper piecing class, but I’ll post more about that later because I think it’s too early to sign up for that one on the web.

While recent events in the newspaper industry have been sad and stressful, these developments may be the push I needed to finally pursue the things I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. On tap are plans to spend more time on CraftSanity, write books (I’ve been wanting to do this for sooo long!) and teach art & craft workshops to children and adults. If you live in the area and interested in having me come out and teach your group, contact me and we’ll hatch a fun plan together.

Oh, and my apologies to those of you who may be looking for my craft column in tomorrow’s Grand Rapids Press. I didn’t write one this week because I was on vacation. The column will be back next week.

Okay, back to crafting everyone. :  )

Imagine my sadness at 8:00 a.m. this morning, looking for your awesome column on the back of the Home section – it’s the first thing I look for! Alas, no Jennifer! My sadness is abated by the knowledge of you and your family being on a well-deserved vacation. Safe travels!

Hey, Jennifer! As a fellow journalist in N.C., when I heard about Grand Rapids’ cuts and Ann Arbor’s closing, I immediately thought of you. Hope you’re doing well! –Beth

I love the idea of turning kids art into embroidered masterpieces! Great idea Jennifer!

Sorry to hear about the cuts affecting your column. I just know that this will open you up to greater creative adventures!

Love, violette
