Just received the new Lion Brand newsletter in my inbox today. Included with this edition was the introduction of a new Lion Brand program. They are now accepting applications for knitting instructors.
Although I don’t think my knitting skills are up to the challenge, I do believe it could be a great opportunity for many knitters out there. I have taught many craft classes in the past and it was always rewarding; not just for the extra cash but the sense of accomplishment that comes with teaching and to share the delight of students who were happy to learn something new. It also usually works both ways and in a group setting, the exchange of ideas can really get the creative juices flowing!!!
The only criteria is to know at least 4 people who you think might be interested in taking classes (no actual obligation). In return, Lion Brand is offering course materials, online help, kits and many other resources to make the transition from knitter to knitting instructor easy and fun. Sounds like a great idea, definitely worth checking out…
