"The Schanowitz Family Does Crafts"
I've taught seven children so far from the Schanowitz family. They came during their school vacation. Their ages ranged from 3 years old to 14 years old. They came to my home at different times. When their father brought the three older girls to my home - ages 10, 12 and 14 and came back to pick them up he had two or three of his young sons with him. Looking around my home they shouted out "I want to make this, I want to make that, so three of them came back to learn from me at a future time. They were ages 3, 7 and 9. Some did needle felted dolls and others did weaving. They came on May 7, 2017, July 8, 2018, July 15, 2018 and December 28, 2018.
All seven of these children were wonderful to teach. I told them they are always welcome at my home.
