Family & Consumer Sciences Teacher Of Needle Arts With Adaptive Blind Techniques
Shireen has been teaching blind and visually impaired adults Needle Arts for more than 35 years in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. Many of her students have asked her to write a book. This is it.
"Needle Arts with Vision Loss" is a series of books on adaptive blind techniques in braided rugs, needle felting, machine sewing, hand sewing and related needle arts. "How to Enjoy Making Braided Rugs Without Sight" is the first book in the series. "How to Enjoy Needle Felting Without Sight" is the second book of the series. The third book in the series is "How to Enjoy Machine Sewing Without Sight". The series may be used as a guide in teaching the visually impaired any of the adaptive needle arts techniques or as a resource for newly blind experienced needle artists. The methods have proven successful for her students over many years. She encourages her students to ask themselves, “How can I make this work safely?” instead of “I can’t do this because I can’t see.”
Vision loss does not need to keep a person from enjoying hands-on creativity. Shireen hopes the Needle Arts with Vision Loss series may add perspective with other needle arts books, to give both teachers and those with a visual impairment the means to tackle a project otherwise thought impossible.
