Whew...I got through my 1st trunk show and class teaching!

Recommended Posts

It was just my local guild that I've been a member of since 2009, but I taught my first class on my pattern Kansas Comfort (to 15 members) and I gave a trunk show of my quilts (to about 50 members).  I thought I would be really nervous, but it actually went pretty smooth, especially when I was getting tongue tied in trying to remember a word   :huh:  and all I had to do was look at the guild president in the first row and she would be mouthing it to me.  haha  I have never felt comfortable in "public" speaking, but I have to say I'm glad I had this experience... and that it's now behind me!  :D

Congratulations.  Now you need to do it again! It gets easier each time you get up in front of the "students". I love to teach and find it is very rewarding (I teach several piecing and demo classes at the LQS). I love to see the faces when someone finally "gets" it (the light bulb goes off) and it turns out to be an "a ha" moment.

Congratulations! As Dawn told me after I taught my first class at a national show, "not everyone has the guts to get up there and teach others!" Forgetting words happens to me a lot and I was teacher for 22 years. I love it when my friends help me out because sometimes I can't say their names when I am introducing them! How embarrassing...we just have to laugh!
