    • Thanks for asking Julie. I do not have any classes scheduled with Carmichael Park and Rec right now but do have three classes in April with Folsom Park and Rec. Here’s a link to the Introduction to Pysanky class. I’m also teaching two classes at the Northern California Eggstravaganza in Sacramento on March 3.

        Thank you. Do you do private classes? At a home with 10 or so women?

    Hello, I’m trying to send you a message by email but it’s getting rejected saying it’s not a valid email address. I’m interested in your class this coming Saturday but don’t know if it is full or not

    • Thank you, can you tell I love blue? Yes they are for sale. Is there a particular one you’re interested in? If you click on the photo to bring up a larger image you will see a seven-digit inventory number. That way we can be sure we’re talking about the same egg. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi there Teresa, I got your website from the card you gave me at the Taylor factory tour. We will be setting up tomorrow at the House of Ukraine by Balboa Park for the Ukrainian dancers 🙂

    • Hope your gig went well. We are still marvelling at those guitars and how they’re made. Fun stuff.

    Hello, just found your website today. I live in the Sacramento area, just wondering if you are planning any more beginner classes in the near future?

    • Hi Heidi,
      I schedule the classes as I get interested students and don’t have one on the calendar right now. If you can get two more friends interested we can schedule a class when it’s convenient for you, otherwise I will keep you posted when a beginner class comes up. I’ve held classes for home-schoolers and also had groups of ladies do a class just as a fun “moms day out.” Both work really well. Stay in touch and let me know what works for you.

  7. Hi Teresa,
    I was so pleased to find you over the weekend. I have some questions for you, which if you have some time to reply that would be of a great help to me.
    I live in PA, and I’ve been doing Ukrainian eggs for three years. It has been so pleasing to watch my talents grow, and my creativity bloom as I have allowed myself the time to enjoy and develop my skills. I bought the *basic* basic set of dyes, wax and one medium kistka. Now that I’ve established that this is going to be a life-time hobby, I think it’s time to get more supplies, but I don’t want to go over-board. Getting a fine kistka is pretty much a given, I can feel and see my limitations with only having a medium. Is there a particular brand that you use? What’s your thoughts about electric kistka? For me, half the pleasure is getting to sit in front of a candle…I find that very soothing…but perhaps there is less of a chance of wax drips and blobs with the electric one? (I suppose I could just burn the candle on the side for the ambiance!)
    Dye questions: I’ve only bought dye once, and it’s ready to be trashed and replaced with new (!). Last time I bought from: and they were fine. Is there other dye that you have used that you would recommend?
    Making straight lines question: So far I’ve had fairly good success drawing straight lines freehand, but now that I’ve been doing it longer I’m getting more picky with my work and would like to make my lines more perfectly. Do you use an egg lathe at all? What other tools do you use to help you make straight lines?
