Things I learned while teaching at Sturt Winter School ...
Funny, clever, wild women will travel across continents to play tea cosy with other funny, clever, wild women - at the drop of a workshop.
(I know. I know. I've learned this before but I never quite believe it.)
Ms Elaine of Canberra
An 85 year old Child At Heart is every bit as naughty as a 35 year old Child At Heart.
Frightening things lurk in the minds of knitters.
(Yeah. Yeah. I knew this already too but it is worth saying again.)
Ms Colleen of Perth
Librarians KNIT in Libraries.
Mastering the continental knitting technique can elicit bursts of exuberant giggling.
Ms Jan of Moss Vale
Compliments come in strange packaging - like the compliment that one soul made by learning to knit a stitch, purl a stitch, cast on and cast off - just three weeks ago - so that she might join the Sturt Wild Knitting Workshop.
Teaching is as much about learning as it is about teaching.
Ms Deirdre of Canberra
Some creative bones need days of quiet beavering before the phoenix can rise.
Put a smile on your face and a tea cosy on your table.
Come play tea cosy with me in Byron Bay on 2 and 3 August - Workshops
