"Talks too much"

 It's a bit of embarrassing family lore that a teacher wrote "Molly talks too much" on my report card once.  Even worse, it was my kindergarten teacher!  I've definitely been feeling that way lately, as I've given a spate of Zoom talks and lectures.  It has been a lot of fun, actually, despite a few terrifying technical glitches here and there, and I'm so grateful to have the chance to connect with my tapestry tribe this way.  I miss you guys!

But I've neglected my studio work and this blog. So this will be short and sweet. . . just a few pics of the latest experiment cut off the loom, and a list of the links where you can catch a couple recordings of the public talks I've done.

Here are the links to the talks with a broad audience.  Others were to local guilds and are not being shared.

HGA is still uploading recordings to this YouTube channel so keep checking back.  Meanwhile, you can catch this 15-minute thread talk on Facebook.  I am the second of three speakers in this segment. https://www.facebook.com/HandweaversGuildofAmerica/videos/?ref=page_internal

And yes, I am in the process of making more of my classes and workshops available via Zoom to guilds and conference.  Contact me for more info.
