Today was the first of four Thursday classes...don't know why I was so nervous....but it was so much fun. I just love seeing the excitement on their faces....
I got to the classroom at NKA a full half hour early....well, after I ran across town and got a Pumpkin smoothie from Jamba in hopes that would settle my nerves!
My wonderful friend and facilitator, Angie showed up at the same time and helped me lug everything up to the second floor. We immediately set up the room in a "U" shape with the tables, so that I could use the middle to walk around in, actually cutting down on the walking for me and my healing knees!
While Angie set up the greeting table with handouts and baggies for them to choose from, I began on my demonstration table.
A couple more samples of different size squares, which I often use to demonstrate a stitch for them.
After a few minutes of housekeeping and introductions, began by opening the baggies and bringing out the fabrics and foundation piece. And before we knew it, the 2 hours were over, and most will have only half completed their squares...Next Thursday we will pick up where we left off and finish the squares before we begin with embroidery stitches!
