    As an instructor, I say that my way is not the only way, but the way I am comfortable with. As a student I dislike it when the person sitting next to me wants me to repeat everything the instructor says. That makes me miss the next point. Pay attention or ask the instructor. I tell my students to ask me if they have questions. Their neighbor may not know the answer or may answer them wrong. Don't feel like you are bothering me, that's what you are paying me for.
    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

    I believe the instructor knows what to do, or they would not be in that position.

    I"ve taken workshops and will admit that I didn't always precut fabrics, but there was a reason that happened. But I did not expect the instructor to give me one on one help when it was my fault.

    I also don't like it when someone in the class brings half her stash because she can't make a decision on which fabrics ro use and expects the instructor to help her with every decsion. And then doesn't like the choices that the instructor gives. I don't know why they even sign up, it seems they are not there to get anything out of the class.

    I just find that behavior rude. As an adult, they should have learned some courtesy by now.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    Never have taken a class.
    Learned from on line videos. No disruptions that way. I have seen many different ways to do blocks and have my prefered ways.
    If I ever take a class, I thank you for the advice and will do it the teachers way.
