taught a mini class at guild last night - very gratifying   General Discussion

Started May-20 by Dee in TX (DBRADFOR3); 399 views.

We had a program cancel at the last minute due to an injury so we had to put together a program quickly.  I agreed to be one of 5 to teach a mini class.  I decided to teach an alternative method to the sew & flip method of doing corner triangles.  I was kind of nervous about it, but it was actually very gratifying how many people were really interested and liked what I showed them.  After the last group, I had walked away to see what the other tables were doing.  When I came back one of the ladies was showing the process to another person who had come up late.  I've never really experienced a "student" learning well enough and being excited enough to show someone else.  Pretty cool.

That was so nice of you to jump in and help out.  Sounds like it was a successful and rewarding lesson.

part two to the story.  I was talking with one lady about how nice it would be to have a custom ruler to do what I was using a regular triangle marked with a sharpie along with some freezer paper to measure.  It got me to thinking.  So I went searching.  And I found one.  And bought it - grin.  I'll let you know how I like it.

Good for you Dee!  You are a good teacher….

I am beginning to get back to a bit of teaching, but I am going to keep it limited.

Wow you can do all sorts of things with that ruler!
