As I am starting to put out to the world that I want to be a weaving teacher, things are actually moving. A friend connected me with a friend of his and she is my guinea pig first private weaving student. I set up a warp for her on my little loom and she’s going to come over once a week and learn different weaving patterns. The first day she came I woke up so excited I popped out of bed and ran through my morning routine. I spent a lot of time prepping the loom, myself and written instructions for her, but now it’s done and I can prep in a third of the time for the next student. I am working on this blog and an “artist’s book” and have listed myself as a teacher on a Weavolution; soon I’ll have postcards for marketing myself as a weaving coach and teacher. I have a call into to another friend of a friend whose 8year old wants to learn to weave. It is VERY exciting to have a path.
