I have to say I just taught one of the nicest groups of women I have ever taugh in Machine Quilting. My Machine Quilting 2 class filled up so we took several women into an over-flow class today - and what a joy they were! If you're reading this - then thank you for being so great! Everyone was happy to be there and ready to learn. It was wonderful. *sigh*
Sometimes when I teach classes everyone is ready and willing to learn - and other times people are much less ready and much less ready to learn. I don't know what it is or why but it seems to go by classes. The classes that I teach where people are ready and willing seem to go by in a blink! And the other classes go by in hours. As a participant you do have the responsibility of reading the supply list and to bring what is needed. If that is not fulfilled then we may have a problem LOL!
In my years of teaching I have realised that a classroom is a two way street. You have to meet the teacher half-way. Now that is not to say that I don't come prepared. I always bring extra needles and thread for people - always. But, hey, a foot pedal does make your machine go! So make sure that you bring yours ;)
