Becka is a fabulous teacher! If you ever get a chance to take one of her classes at the Textile Center, jump on it. I took her Etsy Intro and learned more than I expected. More importantly, it gave me the courage to open my own shop. Thanks, Becka. Much appreciated!  — quote from a student evaluation

Thank you Becka! It was a delight to learn about dying. You are a wonderful and inspiring teacher! — student from WGM class

Becka was very thorough – sent survey ahead of time so she knew how much we knew.  I learned so much – she was terrific and we all had individual help and left knowing we could do work on our own. — attendee from Midwest Weavers Conference
