    Teaching a Sewing Class

    So I'm starting a sewing class this month for three 15 year olds and a 19 year old (and anyone else who wanders in). I spent the first lesson just getting them to understand how clothes are constructed, how the seams work and how curved shapes are fitted to the body to look like straight lines...

    It's been a few years since we've had one and we no longer have enough active people to fill every day but I thought perhaps a thread where anyone can post a video or thought for the season wouldn't be amiss. I thought I would start with a video of Cassandra we've seen before...

    Teaching & Music

    A few years ago someone on here (I couldn't find the old thread) ranted about teachers using non-middle-eastern music to teach their students and how they were doing them a disservice. I found it an interesting conversation at the time but now I just want to say, I get it. As you know I just...

    What have I missed?

    Alright, so I keep wondering and now I'm going to ask. I have been out of touch with the BD scene for a good three or so years (thanks to health issues). So what have I missed? Who are the major performers now? Who is doing the teaching workshop circuit? What is new in each of the styles...

    Apologies and a prayer?

    I've been kinda irritable the last few months and I want to apologize to anyone I've snapped at because of it (especially Yame). It's one of the reasons I haven't been posting much lately, I don't want to bleed on on the board if you know what I mean. I don't know when I may start posting...

    As many of you already know I'm personally interested in Turkish style. The problem is my original teacher has moved and the new teacher I've found to take privates from when I have the funds doesn't know zills. In fact the only one I've found that teaches zills is an ITS teacher who...
