Who would have guessed…. i really like teaching! I must admit – it’s taken me a while to warm up to the concept of teaching, despite having 3 generations of teachers behind me. I have now taught just about all ages, from tiny kiddos almost too young to hold a needle to retirees looking for a fun skill to fill their time. Not being a mom or person very familiar with children, I’d say i enjoy the older kids better than the young ( honestly – 8 or 9 is pushing it when it comes to handling very sharp needles!). But, i had no idea i could have SO MUCH FUN teaching, until yesterday!
Thank you to the 9 ladies who joined me at Stash yarn shop in Corvallis, yesterday. Teaching grownups equals maybe my favorite thing ever. I can’t wait to teach more classes and i hope you’ll consider being my next student. Check out the sparkley new page at Fiber Friends Online with info on how to hire leetle ole me to teach you how to needle-felt. I’m actively looking for students anywhere from 12 years and up and will consider the younger kids for basic classes. Group discounts are available!
Just look what you could make (and keep in mind these little animals had their finishing stage a bit rushed):
I hope to teach you soon! I’m currently working on my spring and summer schedule, so contact me today with workshop ideas and requests and check out my website for more info on pricing and workshop schedule as it develops.
