Deal of a life time! Mary Beth Temple @Webs!

Press Release: September 25 …Join author and designer Mary Beth Temple for the free debut of her newest workshop – Design It Yourself Crochet  FOR FREE on Friday October 2 from 10 – 12pm at http://www.yarn.com/ WEBS. Even if they don’t want to design for publication, many crocheters want to design a project for themselves. While most are happy just doodling with their hooks until they get the results they want, doing just a little preparation ahead of time will make the whole process so much easier – while ensuring that you don’t run out of yarn OR patience! Handout with class notes included. If you like, bring some sketches, swatches, pencil and paper and/or a calculator to play with.

 

Now folks, this is the opportunity of a life time! I have spoken to Mary Beth on several occasions, been on her show, and organized an awards show with her. I KNOW she’ll be a fantabulous (yes, it’s a word, cause I say so!) teacher.

We complain about no classes, and this one is awesome. Obviously if you can’t get to Webs due to geography then you can’t make it! But you if you are able to go for the LOVE OF ALL THAT IS FUZZY…DO IT!

Disappointed…Why don’t you sign up for classes?

So, we whine,bitch and complain about crochet not being represented at various events, fiber festivals, and in local yarn stores. Here’s the rub, when they do offer crochet classes, often those classes get cancelled because of lack of sign ups…so what’s the deal?

Recently Myra Wood posted on the CLF message board that her classes had been canceled at the Oregon Flock & Fiber event to be held next weekend (not this weekend). I am so bummed! I was looking forward to seeing her, I am driving down from Camano Island, WA to Canby, OR to check out the event. I’ve heard it is fabulous. My dear friend & I are driving down to drool, and oogle over fibers, animals and yarn!

I am not a big class taker. I’ve had a few classes, including one by the fabulous Myra (and believe me you want to take her classes), and enjoyed myself. But, for me most of what is offered is stuff I have learned over trial and error…What I do want to learn is often not represented in the class lists, or even in my consciousness. I mean really, there are things out there I don’t know about that I may want to learn, I just have not heard of them!

So why don’t you take classes or go to these events? Why are we allowing the thought the crocheters are cheap, or don’t take classes etc to keep going? What is the deal? I want to know! Reply here people…

And speaking of crochet classes, Karen Whooley of KRWKnitwear Studios is offering a free trial class Crochet A Long on her website!
