Scheduled Classes

Special notice: Due to personal issues, I will be teaching a lighter than normal schedule for an unforseeable amount of time.


Braided Spine Journal

This class was so popular last month that we've scheduled another date at Made in Amador! What are you doing on February 9th (a Sunday)? I will have kits made up with a variety of glorious cover papers, and you'll have your choice of high quality watercolor or text paper for the pages. Learn to make this beautiful book with a braided stitch. It opens flat for writing or painting and, no matter which kit you choose, it's beautiful! Find out more and sign up here.

 From Lonely Planet

Tahoe and Yosemite get all the mountain love in California, but an hour closer to San Francisco (and cheaper and less crowded) is Gold Country.
Towns that ooze century-old ambiance are strung out like throw-back pearls along Highway 49, a fun drive that passes stops like Jamestown's historic train, a tiny gold town called Volcano (with no volcano), wineries (some even consider the region a contender to Napa and Sonoma), caves, gold-panning spots . . .
