The Dream

I teach in many idyllic settings, all over the country and around the world. But I have long wanted to teach where I actually live, in downtown San Francisco!


The Real Deal

Opening night dinner at Joe’s

Classes in the beautiful upstairs classroom at Sips N Sews

Daily class assignments to foster originality and creativity

All Janome machines, cutting tables, irons and design walls provided

Catered lunch daily

Pilates/stretching class with Master Pilates Teacher Carol LeMaitre

Sightseeing/museum visit one afternoon

Transportation to dinner and field trip


Not Included

Lodging...One half block from the workshop location is The Carlton Hotel,

While it is delightful, and the most convenient hotel, you are not required to stay there. Stay where you wish!

Breakfast and you know, there is no shortage of food options in San Francisco. I will provide a delicious lunch each day, one that promises to meet all dietary restrictions, and an opening night dinner at my house.

The Details

This workshop is designed to give you an idea of how I live and work. There will be plenty of physical activity, with the upstairs classroom, my upstairs apartment, my daily hikes after class, the Pilates/stretching class, etc. as well as the classroom being open until 9PM each evening.
