Last week I held a three day workshop in the studio.

The main focus of the workshop was "working small." We covered a variety of intuitive or improvisational techniques with small pieces as well as some precision methods. 

All six of the students were also featherweight owners so we had a little featherweight maintenance lesson at the start of the workshop. They learned how to clean, lube, and oil their machines. As well as how do deal with common issues such as tension, skipping stitches, and when the machine just doesn't want to stitch. 

I enjoyed having people in the studio and they all did great work!
