While we are all socially isolating, I will be posing live videos on my Facebook page every weekday at 11 am Eastern (10 Central, 9 Mountain, 8 Pacific). You can give me suggestions on what you would like to learn in the comments of the videos, in my Facebook group, or as a reply to this post. This is for any craft, it does not have to be yarnie. If I can do it or figure it out, I will share it.

If you are enjoying these videos and would like to (and are able to) donate so I can get paid for them, you can do so with the button below. Even if you can’t, please enjoy the videos. We can still be together, even when we are physically apart.
