November 1 – Goddess Sketchbook: A Daily Practice Inspired by Feminine Energy with Lily Sol

In November’s daily practice, Berkeley artist Lily Sol invites you to tap into feminine energy in all its forms. Use mixed media to channel four goddesses inspired by the power and beauty of nature. In your journal, you’ll adorn your goddesses in flower crowns, jewels, and hues that make your heart sing. Lily’s playful energy makes it easy to stay present and soft-hearted. Plus, gift idea: create a beautiful goddess portrait of your favorite person.

Crafting a gorgeous, bohemian-inspired leather bag is well within your reach with expert guidance from designer Treasure of Nikki&Mallory. Cut and sew a leather bucket bag while learning a wide range of leatherworking skills. Treasure skips no details, and you’ll get to play with lots of tools and techniques. The best part – besides showing off your new bag or gifting it to your favorite fashionista – is that you can do all the sewing on your home sewing machine.

Expert sewist Leslie Schucker guides you through making your own colorful tree skirt using EZ Quilting templates to cut out eye-catching geometric appliques. You can sew and embellish this entire project by hand, but Leslie also shows you how to use a sewing machine to add bias tape for strength and giant ric rac for an extra touch of fun.

November 24th – Corner to Corner Crochet: Make an Evergreen Treen Pillow with Tian Connaughton

Corner-to-corner crochet is a technique you can use to incorporate bold, eye-catching imagery into your crocheted projects. Think of it as pixel art, where each pixel is a small square of crochet. Tian Connaughton, expert crochet designer and technical editor, will guide you through the basics of corner-to-corner crochet while making a pillow with an iconic evergreen tree motif. This pillow is perfect for holiday decor and gifts, but it’s also easy to switch up the colors for a year-round, rustic style.
