Eeek! I got a letter yesterday from Tapestry Craft, which is the big knitting shop in Sydney. Check this out:
“Having come highly recommended to us by Liz Gemmell, Albert Morris, our manager, would like to offer your a teaching position in future classes. If you’re interested please contact us.”
How friggin’ cool is that? Liz Gemmell is a famous Aussie designer and knitting teacher. I had a class with her back in August and I guess I made an impression! (To be honest I didn’t learn much in the class, as the other three students didn’t know much at all. None of them had ever even thought to get a knitting book! I spent the whole time feeling like a suck-up and knitting ahead to provide examples for Liz.)
Anyway, I just talked to Albert on the phone and we’re going to meet up this weekend. It’s getting to the end of the season here (summer’s coming!) so most likely I wouldn’t do anything til next year. I’m excited though! I had a go at teaching my sister and cousin to knit while I was home and it was pretty fun. I’d love to teach a group of beginners and get them all fired up!
