Summer 2016 Events (including a tropical get away!!)

How could it be nearly April. This year is going faster than ever. I’m lining up all sorts of fun things for the rest of 2016 and have even lined up some fab events for 2017. I promised a summer update, so here’s a round up of the Summer teaching events (HINT: read all the way down to the bottom of the page, I have a VERY exciting surprise!!!)

Don’t forget, if you know a shop or guild that would like me to come visit. Let them know they can make teaching requests here. See my full schedule here.

If you are in the New York area, you can book a private lesson with me live here, or book a online streaming lesson with me here.
