A couple weeks ago I taught my new class, "color + stitch", at the American Sewing Expo in Novi, MI. Kate (always an incredible sport and help) and I shuffled into the expo center super early (we didn't mind too much, we had coffee) and began setting things up.
I admit, I always get a little nervous before class. Mostly because my teaching style is a little more on the relaxed size. I'll boss you around as much as you want me to but for the most part, I give you all the space you need to do your own thing.
Turns out the bunch that showed up for class embraced it with style and boy, did we have a good time. As proof to their adventurous spirits, here is the class sample that the demos were centered around:
And these are shots from class of the awesomeness that everyone made:
I had a blast. :) I slept thirteen hours the following day but still, a total blast in every way. I so enjoy teaching, I wish my schedule allowed for more of it. But rather then lament over how rarely I do it, I'm thankful for the times when I can. :)
