Brand New Endeavors!!

I have started my own school!!!

I have enjoyed so much teaching knitting after school, and the demand has been so high, that I decided to open a school and teach summer camps.

 My own crafting has taken a back seat a little bit because this has been quite a challenge to get started.  Getting the word out has been the hardest so far.  But I have been working diligently on that everyday for over a month and now am about 35% full.  I'm totally over the moon!!  The only morning camp session that has no students is the one that teaches crochet.  I actually thought that would sell spots quicker than macrame or weaving, but this is not the case.

I can't do anything without bringing my knitting with me and this is a new project.  It's a sweater for the 13 year old - he picked the pattern and he picked the yarn.  I love both and it's going relatively quickly.

Wish me luck on my new school!!

Good luck with the classes. I'll be interested to hear how it goes. I wonder that you don't offer a week or two with a different craft everyday? Just so the kids get to dabble a little in each and every craft!

What a great idea so many families don't have time to teach these crafts. It is nice to see theses crafts in new little hands.
