Our Need for Connection
One of the WHYs of what I do is my desire to create a community of creativity, playfulness, fun, and art. I want us to be connected to each other - for support, for inspiration, for encouragement, and for fun! It is that need for connection to each other that allows us to create value in our lives.
Part of my vision is to host classes and groups at the shop where people can learn from each other, connect with each other, and feel that it is a safe environment. That is why there is a variety of options for you to choose from at Blue Twig Studio, so that hopefully there is something that appeals to everyone. Along that line, I have now created 2 new facebook groups for further connection. I added a few people, but I don't want to add everyone without permission, so please feel free to ask to be a member if you are interested. The groups are closed so that you have to be a member to see any posts. Your posts and comments will not be seen by the larger facebook community.
The first group is Blue Twig Nest. This group is for instructors and students. If you have taught a class at Blue Twig Studio or are on the schedule to teach or you have taken any class at the shop - then this group is for you. I'd love for both instructors and students to post photos of any of their classroom work, or what they have learned and used in other work. The idea is to keep that connection open even after the class is over. Plus it is always fun to see what happens in the different classes, so you know whether or not you might want to take that class next time it comes around.
The second group is Blue Twig Stitch Society. The group is open to anyone who loves hand-stitching. You can share projects you are working on, share ideas and techniques, share information on threads and fibers, or ask questions. Feel free to join and then invite any of your hand-stitching friends to join too. It will be great to inspire each other.
I always want to encourage the connection between my customers, my students, my instructors. In our fast-paced, hurry-up, instant gratification society, we often lose sight of those connections that we need to maintain a happy and valuable life. I hope the new FB groups will be another opportunity for you to connect with each other.
