Instructor: Matt
Instructor Bio: Matt Eardley grew up here in Santa Barbara sewing on his mom's Bernina 1090, purchased from Grant back in the day! He's never met a craft he didn't like, specializing in fiber arts such as sewing, knitting, and weaving. After a brief detour to graduate school on the east coast, Matt returned home to Santa Barbara to teach weaving at Adult Ed (now SBCC Extended Learning). He joined our team in 2020 to focus on machine sales and education.
