The last 3 years have been stressful! The Pandemic isolation found many doing more weaving , sewing , spinning yarns, knitting, cooking, gardening slowing our pace down. Many turned to saori weaving and spinning yarns . This is my 12 th year of my saori Fiber Studio SAORI SANTA CRUZ . where I teach weaving, and how to spin fibers and how to sew garments from your your handwoven cloth. march 2020 the studio shut down from covid 19 concerns and reopend june 2021 . october 2021 I tempoary closed the studio again to remodel and expand the outdoors teaching class room with more room and permanent pergola. REOPENED in JANUARY 2022

It took a little over 3 months , rain weather delays , supply change delays , finding carpenters , lumber shortages but here I AM BACK open in a EVEN LARGER covid safe well ventilated class room already teaching .
