      Jerri, she does magnificent work! It is such a pleasure learning from her. (Of course, I add my own twist to things too — you know how that goes!)

    Hi Jerri,
    Thank you for your kind words about my cards………Chiara is one of my online students and a hardworking person to learn all the techniques I can offer her as a certificated Pergamano teacher. And I support her to give her own twists to her projects, because I hate copying…….LOL…You have to make a card something of yourself, a personal touch is very important.
    In 2006 a lady from the USA came to me to have classes with me and then in 2008 I went to her and we organized a Parchment Party with 6 workshops. Chiara, who was following my online classes already, was one of the ladies who participated and it was lovely to meet her in real life……
    I hope to come to the USA again in the future…………..

    I am so interested in taking online classes and learning about this gorgeous art. Do you or anyone you know teach them online? [edited out personal email]
    Thank you!

      Hi Wendy,
      I was just surfing along and found this very old mail of you. I will start online classes in 2013 again, so if you still have interest, you’re welcome. Maybe Chiara can give you my private mail address, so we can talk about it.
