Hi all. The other day, I went to Hancock Fabrics (like JoAnn's) to pick up some denim patches. I happened to ask if they offer knitting courses, and they said no, but that they're always getting knitting questions. So I marched myself up to the manager and introduced myself. We had a meeting today, and I brought FO's and a project proposal. She was thrilled, and I am now the new knitting instructor at the store!
Get this - I actually got to go yarn shopping for free in order to make sample projects for the advertisement poster. I even found a merino/cashmere/acrylic blend that is similar to DB Cashmerino. I did buy some acrylic fun fur for the accent on a scarf, but we won't tell anyone, will we?
I will be teaching a Beginning Knitting class, one on hats, on socks and on washcloths. Plus, I will organize a weekly stitch and bitch. Cool stuff. And I'll still be able to recommend my private knitting instruction under my business name!
It was a good day, and I thought I would share all this with you guys. I've learned a lot on this site from each poster. Thanks!
