I have been involved in 4-H for a long time, as a member and as a volunteer instructor, and I endorse the organization’s commitment to learning by doing. Therefore, I’ve developed a teaching program for sewers in which only one or two new skills are added to each project, to prevent the learner from becoming overwhelmed.

Sewing with wool can seem serious and daunting, but it’s a friendly fiber and well-suited as the basis of skill-building projects. If you’re interested in becoming a better sewer in general, or in learning more about how to work with wool specifically, I can show you how to choose fabrics and projects that introduce all the pertinent techniques you’ll need, in a sequence that makes sense and is easy to achieve. With thoughtful fabric, pattern, and technique choices, you can sew wool like a pro from the start.
