That's right. I'm now teaching! Daniel and I were in our local JoAnn's a few weeks ago shopping for some fabric to bind a quilt, when the Education Coordinator asked if I quilted often. Well... yes.
She then asked if I'd be interested in teaching since their previous teacher just called and quit. Well, I suppose I could give it a shot...
Now imagine having a job interview for a job you hadn't considered before 3 minutes ago while keeping a 17 month old boy who is due for his nap any second from destroying the entire store. Yes, you imagined that correctly... it was not the way I would have planned for a job interview to go, but I guess it worked out.
I've taught two introductory quilting classes so far and it's gone well! It's actually kind of fun. I definitely have learned a lot. Who knew that teaching newbies to use a rotary cutter was an hour long process. I did not see that lesson coming my way. :)
I thought I'd mention it on here in case anyone in the Kansas City area reads our blog and would like to come take a class from me. I have two new classes coming up soon.
First one is Quilting 201: Hexagon Pieced Pillow. It's a really fun project where you'll learn how to machine piece hexagons and do a free motion stippling quilting pattern. It's a 2 part class that runs July 2 & July 9, 6-9pm.
Second class this Diagonal Wave class. It's a 4 part class that runs July 3, 10, 17, & 24, 6-9pm.
Please excuse the terrible photos, I forgot to get good ones of them before I brought the projects in for samples.
