Thanks for Everything. I will miss everyone!

It is with sadness that I am writing to let you know that this is my last week at The Handwork Studio. This past year has given me the tremendous gift of surrounding myself with such a lovely and kind group of families, as well as our team. I am moving on to further my career as a fiber artist. We are in the process of interviewing some wonderful candidates, and I know one of them will take good care of you in the future. 


During my time here, I have seen creativity bloom in a myriad of ways in all ages. From the spark that I see when a child learns their first stitch, to the countless “A-HA” moments I see our talented Machine Sewers encounter, there is an unparalleled level of dedication and craftsmanship that I see fostered in these students. I am confident that this next generation of crafters will be able to carry over their individuality and perseverance to any direction they choose to follow. 

It has truly been a moving experience being a part of this community. I would like to extend a warm thank you to everyone I have had the pleasure of meeting along the way.
