Teaching quilt class

I have my first class under my belt! Woo hoo! Last night, I got to the shop just before the class started to find that the kits for 2 of the students hadn't been cut last December. No worries, I whipped those out real quick and we were on way.

The class is for this wall hanging. It's Vacation Houses by Thimbleberries.


There were 3 ladies taking the class - my dear friend Jeanette and 2 other regular customers in the shop that I have gotten to know while working there. I got them set to the task of cutting their fabric. There was a bit of cutting, but with it being a small wall hanging and only a two part class.

The ladies attending the class had a good time with me, but there was an issue that I probably should not discuss here. I need to try and get the shop owner to deal with the issue because Jeanette mentioned that it made her uncomfortable, although sitting through the class, I could tell that what was going on was making Jeanette uncomfortable. Hopefully, it will be remedied.

All in all, it was a good class and I believe that the ladies will have their wall hangings done next Tuesday. I will post pictures if they let me take them. I'm sure Jeanette will! :)

I am glad you had a good class, and any/all issues be resolved quickly. I think they will be happy that this class will have them with a wall hanging by the end of the next one!!
I have never taught a class, but I had one lady tell me she thought I would be good at it???? I just thought, 'uh, I don't think so!!!'

so congrats on the class and may the next one be even better!!!!
