Be a Better Craft Teacher Series at Sew, Mama, Sew PLUS New Video Sewing Glossary Entries are up!

tool tray

I am currently writing a series over at Sew, Mama, Sew about teaching sewing and craft.  We’re calling it the Be a Better Craft Teacher series, and I’m drilling down on how to develop, plan and build a craft class from the ground up.  Have you seen it?  The new installment is up today: Know Your Student.

See all three parts so far, and come back to Sew, Mama, Sew every Tuesday for the next installment:

pins There are also NEW entries up in the Video Sewing Glossary!  I’m growing a collection of short videos designed to define common (and not so common) sewing terms, and demonstrate how they work in the real world.  See me make continuous bias tape, demonstrate the correct way to use shears or a rotary cutter, or properly press a quilt block!  It’s all free and it’s all being updated and expanded every week through the end of the year. Have a suggestion for a term you’d like to see me include in the glossary?  Leave a note in the comments!  And then keep an eye out in October–I’m brewing up a fun Glossary Contest to share with all of you.

    First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!
