I had to post this here as I know you all would understand how cool this is! I wandered into my local Micheal’s store today looking for a skein of wool, and they had signs in the yarn area saying they were looking for a knitting instructor. I inquired about it at the service desk, and its a very part time position, like 1-2 times a week, and no specific time set for it, they can work around my schedule. So I applied right then and there! Now to try and convince myself I can actually teach other people to knit. I have no idea what they expect yet, but from what I’ve seen there before, their classes seem to be mostly for beginners. So I will just wait for a call from them whenever. Wish me luck!
That sounds soooo cool!! I hope you get the job!
Good luck!! That’s a really neat opportunity and you never know where it might lead. Yarn discounts too, probably! :happydance:
good luck!!! I’ve thought about doing something similar as well, but I lack the confidence in my skills… oh, and I live in SE michigan too!
How wonderful. :cheering: I hope you get it. Will you get a discount too?? That would be really great for your pocketbook and your yarn stash.
:woot: :cheering: That is so cool!!! Be confident, you can do it!!! :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:
I’m an instructor at Michaels and love it! (Wilton cake decorating…not knitting.) Anyway, our knitting instructor works 2 stores in the area. She usually does beginner class every other week then a more advanced class the other week- cables, fair isle, etc. In the beginner class it’s just knit and purl. You make 90% profit from your fee. So, if you charge $10 and have 5 students, you make $45.
Perks- 25% discount at the store, free classes- you can take any class they offer (that’s where I learned to knit), you’re a store employee so they do take out taxes, and most of all, new knitting friends!
that sounds really great.
:cheering: :cheering: How cool is that?! Good luck :cheering:
Wowsers!!! That is so awesome!!! Big huge [size=6]GOOD LUCK[/size] to YOU!!! :cheering:
Micheals is where I took my kniting class (twice!) and yep, I was definitely a beginner. The first time there was only 2 other people there besides me. the second time it was me and one other student. she had some experience and she was asking about YO, SSK, while I was trying (despearatly) to CO!
Good Luck and it’s great you are willing to teach… because someone like you DID do it someone like ME now can do it too!!
Wow, that would be so fun! Hope you get it
That sounds great! GOOD LUCK!!!
