       Natural Dyeing Workshops with Sincere Sheep

      There's an automatic discount if you add four natural dyeing workshops to your shopping cart - one of them will be free! You can use this to come solo four different times, pair up with a friend to come twice, or attend just one workshop as a group of four.

      Not included in the deal, we also have a shorter dyeing workshop on July 27 at The Royal Bee Yarn Company in Pacifica, CA

       

      In Person Classes and Workshops
        I teach regularly at these yarn shops in the San Francisco Bay Area: Aranea Craft Studio in Hayward, Avenue Yarns in Albany, Coven of Stitches in Alameda, and Fiber Circle Studio in Petaluma.

       

      Virtual Craft Circles

      Every Week: I host a free Virtual Craft Circle every Monday 10:30-11:15 Pacific, even on holidays when we usually have a larger group. Join in to ask me a quick question, or just hang out chatting and crafting with friendly folks. Register here to get the link.

      Please note that this is an inclusive space open to people of all races, religions, sexual orientations, gender identities, socioeconomic statuses, abilities, and bodies. All participants are expected to be respectful of others and any harmful statements will be addressed immediately. As a participant, please feel free to send me a private chat message if you need any support.

       

      "Thank you so much, Kira!!!   All of your workshops have been so helpful.  They are things that I haven't taken the time for before, and that can be somewhat dry to read about, but you made them all interesting and applicable to me.  I'm looking forward to putting all the tidbits to use." - Alyson

      "GREAT class!! Learned a lot and had a great time as well! Thanks so much!" - Patty

      "I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your workshop on Saturday. I'm not always a fan of the Zoom action, but I thought it worked really well for your presentation." - Sarah

      The instructor was fabulous! One of the best I have taken. Very thorough, professional, and personable. Kira really cared if the students learned. Perfectly paced course, really great! - Stitches at Home student
