There was a long discussion recently about what an instructor should (and should not) do when teaching a class.
Looking back, what were the most useful things you learned when you took your first hand-piecing class?
Or, what do you wish you would have known "then," that you've since learned?
Useful things I learned:
How to make/tie a consistent knot.
If you were a beginner, would these things be useful/informative to you?
Fabric - fiber content, grain lines
Needles - differences - any brand preferences
How much "technical" information is enough and when does it get to be too much?
I have found I'm not a very good gauge of some things, because I've been told that my mind processes things "funny/different"
