I was scheduled to teach a knitting class this afternoon. I turned up at the store and was pleased that the education coordinator was there. We had a nice chat about upcoming classes, some ideas for additional classes, etc. There was only one problem … the student never came.
While I was there, a customer stopped by the classroom and asked some questions about the lengths and styles of knitting needles. I ended up demonstrating how to knit in a circle on double-pointed needles. I sent the customer on her way with a tiny sample so she’d know what to do. I tried to encourage her to sign up for a class but she lives about an hour away and didn’t think a class would be feasible.
It felt good to help her … especially in front of the coordinator.
