Workshops/Classes

I’m conducting classes and workshops for homemakers of all skill levels. I have created a meetup group where I will be posting all of my future sessions. Joining the group is free and you can join from anywhere in the world. All of the workshops/classes will be virtual for the time being. There will be both paid and free events.
