Galyna will be teaching The Mystique of Russian Lace in Classroom B2 from 1pm – 3pm. A little about Galyna:
My life started in a small town in the south- eastern part of the Ukraine, former republic of the Soviet Union. I am a teacher by profession & by heart. Love to teach and share my knowledge with others. Graduated Kiev Pedagogical Institute of Foreign Languages, with a Masters degree in English & Spanish and worked as an English & Spanish teacher for 11 years in the Ukraine. In 1993 I came to USA and worked as a teacher of Ukrainian literature, language, history & art at the private school run by the Christian Orthodox Russian church for Ukrainian- Americans in New York , NY. In 1995 I got married and moved to Tennessee and now live on a small ranch in Ethridge, TN. In August 2012 I became a proud Citizen of the USA!
Since being a little girl I spent a lot of time with my Grandmother. All my life growing up I was taught by my Grandmother how to knit & crochet.. And now nearly 50 years later the crochet hook which my Grandmother gave to me is still in my hands.
But to tell you the truth I never learned to spin from my Grandmother. In 2006 I leaned to spin & now it’s the new passion of my life. I spin on several different wheels and on different spindles too, including Russian way of spinning & creating Orenburg gossamer web yarn. I am collecting not only spinning wheels but spindles too. My ETSY shop is https://www.etsy.com/shop/Lusy. My work – no , it is not work, it is doing something that I enjoy. I’ve written 2 articles for Spin Off Magazine & Piecework. I offer private lessons in spinning, knitting & crocheting.Share
