Knitting & Crochet ONLINE CLASSES with Lisa Daehlin

September 10, 2020

Hello fabulous people!

From my heart to your hands, Knitting & Crochet ONLINE CLASSES. From the comfort of your own home, or porch, or car, or lake cabin, or corn field, or city bus, or wherever you find yourself on the other end of this zoom call 😉

Here’s a wacky image of me in my #KnittingNeedleHeartFascinator to show how I am quite often dreaming yarn-y thoughts and how to spin them into gold (or, maybe silver, diamonds? perhaps circles and triangles,… I dunno…rhombus, anyone?).

Online Knitting and Crochet Classes with Lisa Daehlin - at 92Y 92nd Street Y, and private lessons, NYC

I’m happy to teach any crochet or knitting technique that you’d like to learn. Forms of Knitted Lace tend to be my favorite. Or Broomstick or Hairpin Lace Crochet. Or Tunisian Crochet. Or Tapestry Crochet.

I’m teaching online this semester (and have been since last spring). The online format works so wonderfully well to share the love and knowledge of these art forms.

Currently, I am offering these classes (online, via Zoom) at:

  • 92nd Street Y, follow this yellow brick road to 92Y classes
  •  University Settlement, 
  • Private Lessons (for one or a group, I’ll arrange them as you like). Depending on your desire and learning style, we can arrange a one-time session, or ongoing lessons, or a
  • Zoom Party for Friends (learn a technique, make a group project).
  • Online Stitchers Studio, focusing on various techniques (lecture/presentation AND demonstration)
    All KINDS of ideas. Email me at LisaDaehlin@gmail.com

Oh, and, by the by, if you haven’t yet seen my #LovePeopleBeKind Crochet Heart project, I invite you to get on the google and check it out. Let me know if I can send you a heart. Am more than happy to do so. 🙂

Lisa’s Weekly #LovePeopleBeKind Cabaret

NOTE….For the Summer 2020, I’ll be doing this show on the FIRST THURSDAY of the month (June4, July2, August6) at 4pm EST Eastern Standard Time.

It’s turned into a Weekly Gig.. this wacky, but pensive, and music-filled cabaret.

The link to the live stream changes each week (and the performances live in archive), so here I make a handy list for your viewing and listening pleasure:

Hello Friends,

Well, it goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway) that we are living in a strange and fluctuating time.

During this time of #SocialDistancing, I suddenly find myself having been invited to produce a Weekly #LovePeopleBeKind Cabaret from my Living Room. Wacky, huh? The only pianist is the joint is moi. So.. things are getting creative.. I’m playing a bit, doing some shtick, the more classical aspects of this melange of styles is supported by some backing tracks worked up by some super talented pianists (who knew that Grieg and Poulenc could be done a la karaoke?).

To see PREVIOUS SHOWS, ARCHIVED ONLINE, scroll down past the photo of the leopardy-red-clad lady.. that’s ME…

Remembering more than the refrains. CABARET in the Time of Social-Distancing

April 15, 2020

Greetings friends and fans of music (and other performance-type stuff),

Find here the link to an article written by Joe Levine of the External Affairs Office at Teachers College, Columbia University. He was kind enough to spend some time with me, asking about some of my musical journey. Currently, that journey has led to me being invite by Teachers College to do a weekly Live-Stream Cabaret Show from my (oy vey and uff da!) living room.

Schedule of weekly shows (and links to each of them) at this page on my blog.

LIVE on Vimeo: Love People Be Kind CABARET _ 26mar2020; 6pmEST

March 25, 2020

Tune in to a LIVE performance (from my socially-distanced living room) Thursday, March 26th 2020; 6pm EST.

It’ll be live on VIMEO, I have la voce, but no pianist (guess I’ll be filling in at the keys, let’s see what happens THERE). It’ll be some songs, some poetry, some oyster costumes, some schtick. You know.. a run of the mill Thursday evening.

Swing on by…

A note on the above photo: that’s moi in the center, all leopardy-and-red. The gorgeous set of eyes peering out from the right edge of this screenshot (from the Teachers College, Columbia University website) belong to Yolanda, an extraordinarily wise, talented, must-be-heard poet who is doing something (via that same Vimeo channel) on Friday night.
