Jude Hill – Feel Free

I expect quite a lot of you already know about Jude Hill and follow her Spirit Cloth blog. In case you don’t, you might be interested to know that she has started a project called ‘Feel Free’ which provides all of her teaching material free on her website (previously she used to make a modest charge for her teaching materials). I spent some time last week exploring her Spirit Cloth 101 class, and I think it’s excellent. The text and photos are interspersed with video and audio files and I love to hear Jude’s calm voice describing what she’s doing. I’ve so enjoyed watching and listening to the material. Each time I go back to the site I find there’s more available on it. You may, or may not, like the Spirit Cloth style and ethos – personally I find them very appealing. Access to the ‘Feel Free’ project is genuinely free, but if people want to make a donation in cash they can do so. I’m going to do this, to show my appreciation of what she’s doing, because I have the means to do so. But if you don’t have the means, there’s no pressure or obligation to contribute.

You can also register your email address on the Spirit Cloth blog, so that you get updates. I’ve been doing this for a while and it’s worth doing because the updates are daily (I’m in awe of this, as I find it really difficult to post even twice a week). They tend to ping into my inbox during the afternoon in the UK, and I look forward to them when I’m spending long hours at the computer working. When I was experiencing some glum, dark days a while ago, I found that these daily updates really brightened my day. One day I emailed Jude to tell her how much I appreciated them, and got a reply back straight away. Although my blog audience must be tiny compared to Jude’s – she’s been doing this a long time – I really appreciate it when I hear from readers. I had a lovely message the other day from a reader to tell me that she really liked my embroidered edges which are featured in the gallery. It made my day, and made me feel that the effort I put into the website and blog is actually worth it. So thank you to those readers who drop me a line or leave a comment. It’s much appreciated.
