Heather said ‘This has been a rewarding experience, from beginners to advanced. I teach cutting, laying & design. My classes are small to provide maximum attention & many students have been coming for months, learning new techniques & challenges. Some students have disabilities, one in particular with MS has improved her fine motor skills & others find my environment, relaxing. This has been a rewarding sea change in my later years & the biggest reward has been helping students discover their artistic side’.
