About the instructors: Joni Olmstead is a lifelong fiber artist, who began sewing, knitting, crocheting and embroidering in junior high. After working in marketing and graphic design, the corporate world got old, and Joni opened her own longarm quilting business. To supplement that, she began working in yarn stores and expanded her love of fiber to include weaving, spinning and felting. She loves encouraging her students to stay on a “high fiber” diet and combine the different fiber arts to make them their own! Elsa Bouman has a BA in Fine & Graphic Arts and has taught Art and Fibre Art for over 20 years in the San Francisco Bay area and now Seattle. She has also worked as a graphic designer in the music industry. She currently teaches in the Shoreline Schools through grants provided by the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council.
