Home Ec. Classes at ReForm School

Just wanted to share the news that I have teamed up with CRAFT contributors BIllie Lopez and Tootie Maldonado to open a new “Home Ec. Department” within their Los Angeles gift shop ReForm School! We’re kicking things off next month with a series of amazing classes from a variety of local makers (including many folks who have written for CRAFT, including Cathy Callahan and Christine Haynes). Classes include Sewing 101, Embroidery 101, Reversible Wrap Skirts, Valentine’s Charm Bracelets for Kids, Power Tool Empowerment for Women, Knit a Cactus, and Papier Mache Jewelry.
We’ll be launching a new website soon at HomeEcShop.com, but for now you can get the scoop on our classes via the ReForm School blog. Be sure to stop by in person as well, since we’ll be bringing in a slew of amazing fabrics (including Liberty fabrics!) and supplies like handspun yarn and handcrafted porcelain buttons over the next few weeks. Hope to see you soon!
