Yaay!

My proposal for a tablet weaving class in March of ’05 in San Antonio was accepted – and they’ve even found a gluten-intolerant person to put me up with! I’m very excited about this. It’s so cool to be teaching this stuff; it’s a technique that I really enjoy, but it’s a little on the obscure side. And it’s especially gratifying to learn that in a real-world workshop, I can actually make decent money teaching it!

    WOO HOO! Congrats! that rules! I’m going down that same path. I’m about to start connecting with the local education centers to teach spinning, knitting and crochet. Maybe even painting and drawing. We’ll see how it goes though. You’re got me revved believing it’s possible. Don’t dream it BE it! Sorry too easy…

    Haven’t done that – it’s a good idea! This is really a new venue for me, teaching it for “real”; I’ve done so much of my teaching on a volunteer basis, it’s strange to think of it as something I could actually make some cash by doing!

    DCCCD pays their continuing ed teachers between $15 and $50 an hour. You have to write a course proposal, then they will put it in their cataloug to see if there’s an interest. I think a class like this would probably go over the best at Brookhaven or Richland.

    Congratulations!!!

    Btw, how’d the S in the Park thing go last night? Sorry we couldn’t come…. aside from finishing up some errands, someone dropped by last night so we had company really late. Hope you guys had fun!

    Shakespeare was a *blast!* I had some friends come, we had a good turnout from our membership, and it was a pretty much perfect night. Champagne, desserts, fresh berries and cherries… yum.

    The High Priest and Priestess of the Wren’s Nest group were there – I was hoping to introduce you, but hopefully you’ll get to meet them some other time.

    I noticed you added me to your friends page, so I added you back.
    Nice to meet you 🙂
