So, I got an email yesterday that I’d been nominated for the Best Craftsy Instructor Blog in the Sewing category–you guys are so nice! Final voting is taking place now through Oct 29–hop on over and you can see all the nominees (including MADE and Sew, Mama, Sew). Click on the “Sewing” category and scroll down to see the other great blogs who’ve been nominated, and to cast your vote–every vote gets entered to win a free class, apparently, so why not, right?
Speaking of Sew, Mama, Sew: the last major installment of the Be A Better Craft Teacher series is UP and ready for you! I’ll be back next week with a conclusion post to tie it all up in a bow, but until then, you can read all the posts in the series:
- Know Your Stuff
- Know Your Student
- Know Your Goal
- Know Your Medium
- Know Your Limits
- Know Your Effectiveness
I have really, really enjoyed writing this series, and think there is so much more to say and explore on this topic. If I were to, say, develop this series into an in-depth e-book, the kind with worksheets and charts to fill in and bullet lists of ideas and checklists for planning, is that something that you all would be interested in? Share with me in the comments today what you’d like to see in a guidebook to teaching sewing & craft, and I’ll cogitate on it some more! I’d love to create a really practical, useable guide for teachers who are tackling bringing these skills to students, all over the world, and I’d love to hear from you what you’d most like to see!
