We're going to press...

Its official! I am now a professional quilt instructor! (?!?!) The catalog for our local Parks & Recreation Deptartment goes to print tomorrow morning. I just got an email with the final class descriptions for my approval: (what do you think, should I ok them?!?)

Tween the Stitches 1 class
Jessica Mauk. Students age 9-15 will learn basic sewing skills while making your very own one-of-a-kind pillowcase! Students will need to bring a sewing machine (if you don’t have one, please contact the instructor so alternate arrangements can be made), 1 yard of 100% cotton fabric (regular cotton or flannel works best) for the body of the pillowcase, 1/2 yard of a fun coordinating fabric for the cuff and 1/4 yard of an accent fabric as well as a spool of thread in a coordinating color. This class will cover the basics of measuring and cutting fabric, pinning the fabric in place and then sewing it all together. Recreation Center.
Mon Nov 10 9:30a-12:30p $20
Sat Nov 22 9:30a-12:30p $20
Thurs Dec 4 5-8p $20

Beginning Quilting

A supply fee of $30 is due payable to the instructor at class. Recreation Center.

Impressive, I've taught family members to quilt but haven't ever taught a formal class.

Good luck on your upcoming classes. Teaching children that aren't your own is so much fun. I taught cake decorating to 4-H kids a few years ago and really enjoyed it.
PS- I finally got the pillowcase fabrics in the mail today.
