Don't know. But your suggestions were good ... cafe, coffee shop. I was thinking the library ...or... Barnes & Nobles has really nice gathering space, ...or ... Borders Books ... or ... the common space at the mall ... YMCA might have some space she could use ...

I go to Borders often taking my knitting along with me. People play cards in the cafe also. At one time there was a group of women that met there to knit. Anyone could join them. At that time i was not knitting. To bad because i bet they would of taught me plenty. I saw some of the items they were knitting, beautiful sweaters, hats, coats. etc.

Victoise, I get what you're saying. I would be very uncomfortable if I thought the guy might be looking to "hook up." Yuck.

You could reply to him and tell him "the slot is filled." That what I used to tell creepy people when I was renting a room in my home. You know, imply that you only have so much time to teach, and you're already booked. I'm sure you could even word it in an honest way, like "I'm not available to teach you, sorry." (Or "available" in any other way! Ick!)

Or, you could tell him you've decided to teach in groups of 3 or more only, and then you'd have other people there to reduce any "personal" vibes.

Definitely I'd stick to a cafe kind of place; anywhere public and comfortable.

Great idea to teach and post to Craigs list! Good luck with that. Let us know how it goes!

thank you!
Wow wow wow... just got up this morning and this is the first thing I read. I had a feeling (feelings again yes!) that this would be the place to get some real feedback that would help.

You are all great to take the time to help on this little problem.
I was going to go to a Starbucks or something of course, never in my home... I just am not going to take this fellow on ... I am going to go with my gut feeling. That was good Amy, about the diffeent options of saying NO.

It's true about the PC thing and all that, I hate to do something I really don't want to do because of whatever... Well, when it gets right down to it, if the person had been more polite I would have picked up the phone and talked to him.

THOSE PICTURES ARE BEAUTIFUL! Nice way to start the morning.
Thanks again, ! Vic
