Joanne Sharpe Classes

Joanne Sharpe Teaches

I love inviting well known artists to teach here at My Heart's Fancy.  I've been following Joanne Sharpe for a while and after a little prompting from a few of my favorite people (you know who you are!), I contacted Joanne and she graciously accepted.  If you are not acquainted with Joanne, visit her blog Whimsperations for a little taste of her fun-loving personality.  I must say after speaking with her I was blown away by her down home spirit and true love of teaching what she does so well.  Without further ado, here is what she will be teaching....
