    When I took my only quiliting class (at church) she gave us a folder with copies of the blocks we were going to make (and some extras). She also brought in some of her stash for us pull from.

    I don't think she had ever taught a class before, but we had a really good time.

    Remember to have fun, and everyone else will.

    But seriously, I appreciate all the kind words and encouragement from everyone here.

    As for my priest, I've known him all my life. Like an older brother. He's a year older than me and used to tease me endlessly in school. So when I say I want to send him someplace horrible......I mean it!! :lol: :lol:

    You are going to do great. If you are passionate about quilting it will come out in your teaching. You and your class are going to have a good time. All of my quiting teachers sit as much as standing because they have to demonstrate, so you should be able to sit in front of them most of the time and that way they can come up and look at what you are doing. You will probably be walking around more than standing up front. Do you have a podeum for when you are standing.

    You go girl. Easy for me to say, huh. :roll: I have been ask to teach also and I can stand in front of a group all day if it deals with politics, but I won't teach a class. I teach my friends all the time, but there is something about a structured class. :lol: I think once you get started you students will end up being quilting friends and it will be easy.

    Pick up one of the Eleanor Burns books and just follow thru the instructions with your "class". Pick something like log cabin which is super easy. You can ad lib as you go but the bulk of the instruction is there so you don't have to work about missing some important detail. Just my thought!

    Remember, they are to this also and there no teachers police in the group:)
    The students are going to think you are great and know everything they want to know. Smile and tell them all what a great job they are doing...

    All I can think is, how wonderful you are to give your time. It may be a little uncomfortable for you at first, but I'll bet the rewards will be many. I hope you'll keep us posted on your journey. Big hugs for you.
