Video interviews. Brain Injury and Caregiving.

Did you all know that my husband has had a brain injury since 1992. Twenty seven years of Aphasia, and disability. He was recently interviewed by Dr. Dan Gardner, physician and psychotherapist with advanced, post-graduate training in psychoanalysis. Dan lives here in San Diego, California, and was one of the founders of the San Diego Brain Injury Foundation, some 35 years ago. 

My husband was interviewed by Dr. Dan Gardiner. Here's the VIDEO.

And I was interviewed about caregiving, here's the VIDEO
Thanks for watching.

5 day art quilt workshop in California in April 2020

by Jane LaFazio

Asilomar Conference Center, Pacific Grove, CA


April 24-29, 2020  SESSION V
I'll be teaching a 5 day workshop on the shores of the Pacific Ocean


Join me for a mixed media approach to art quilts. Learn: simple sketching from nature, how to design and carve stamps, and free form mono-printing to create your unique surface design on fabric. You’ll combine your original elements into a totally one-of-a-kind art quilt that represents the beautiful area of Asilomar and Pacific Grove. Jane will guide you regarding color, theme, composition and finishing and show you how to add unexpected elements like found papers, tea bags and embellishments to your art quilt.  We’ll use our sewing machines to free motion stitch and sew. You’ll also learn hand embroidery stitches and embellishment. (A sewing machine will be be very helpful in class, but not necessary, if you prefer to hand stitch.) At the end of the creative and laughter-filled week, you will have created a beautiful color and texture filled art quilt that is totally you!

here's a video from the last time I taught at Empty Spools:
