Pedagogy

Well folks, 'tis almost the new year! As such, I've lined up a few teaching gigs around LaLaLand in honor of '09. Let's hear for working 7 days a week!

Ahem.

Despite the time suckage factor, I really do love to teach. As many of you are probably aware, teaching was my career of choice way back when. I absolutely loved imparting my passion for making unto others. I just had trouble making ends meet while doing so, hence my transition to the Cube Farm. However, I am fortunate to still have a few opportunities to play with you all! So, without further ado, I present my teaching schedule for the next few months...

On Saturdays (for the foreseeable future) I can be found at Abuelita's Knitting and Needlepoint in South Pasadena, where I teach both knitting and crocheting. Project based classes as well as private lessons can be had. Currently, we are encouraging peeps to crochet a pair of Fuzzy Boots!



Contact the store to sign up or just email me and I will pencil you in for a lesson!

My other teaching opportunities will occur at The Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica. Contact those peeps to sign up for class!

Oh oh oh! I want to do your acid dyes class! So not fair to live in Iowa! I think you should start doing online webinar classes. :-)

Sounds like you have your hands full....wish I was in California to come take a class....hard to find fellow crocheters here in East TN.

Now that the typical holidays are over (here in New Orleans we are starting carnival season tomorrow) I am supposed to teach someone how to knit. I haven't tried that in years. We'll see how it goes. Especially since I knit continental having crocheted first.

Hi! I just stumbled across your blog. It's great! Thanks for taking the time to blog. I was wondering if you are able to share the pattern for these fuzzy boots. Thank you!
