I would be and have been quite flattered when people copy my craftiness.  Show them where to find inspiration and/or patterns online and places to get pointers for themselves and their own style should start emerging.  Its kinda cute when my friends ring me up with 'how do i tell if its a knit or a purl' or 'whats stocking stitch... ohhhhhh it has a name, thats my favourite one'

Antsy, why not start a crochet group.  Seeing you take your crochet to class may have given other closet crocheters the confidence to do so too, sadly not many girls these days have the confidence to pull out their craft in public, but you appear to have inspired them.  They also might want a chance to connect with you via your craft for whatever reason, perhaps they don't have any crafty friends and would like some.  Having other people to ask might also stop these girls in your class asking you all the stupid questions someone else to ask, next time they ask you can say 'well theres a group , maybe you should come join us and learn for yourself'.  She is probably hoping you will turn round and offer to teach her, and with the group the other members could help teach her too so you won't cop ALL the dumb questions.

That is such a good idea! I concur! Smiley

Nothing is more inspiring to me than seeing people fall in love with a craft, and I am more than happy to be the one to teach them! I mean, somebody was willing to teach me! After all, if everyone guarded their craft as their own, there certainly wouldn't be a craftster.org, right?

We are probably going to hold a knitting basics class next month for people interested in learning for the drive. email us at innwhen@yahoo.com and I can let you know when we'll be holding the class. Smiley Thanks!

I know this topic is d-e-a-d, but I'm a newbie! I live in Woodstock, work near Cumberland, and attend KSU in the evenings.

I am into knitting, sewing, dyeing, jewelry-making, candle-making and just got started with clays. If you guys are meeting up, let me know!


I am also organizing a cold-weather clothing drive (scarves, beanies, mittens) to distribute winter 08 to the homeless downtown. If anyone is local and interested please see our blog at www.innwhen.blogspot.com.

Thanks!

My husband bought me some clays and a pasta machine for Christmas this year. I've made a TON of pendants (nothing special!), but I also made these little guys. They are really simple, but I'm still figuring things out. Smiley Anywho, here ya go:

This has happened to me so many times, but it's best for all to just let it go. If you are truly comfortable with who you are, and you are just being yourself, it really shouldn't bother you. I used to get so pissed when I was younger if someone copied me or if I felt like they were closing in on my 'style.' But as I have gotten older, and more comfortable in my own skin, I've realized that it isn't my STYLE that makes me who I am. Ya know? People are always going to be attracted to those creative, confident qualities, and some people do not know how to exhibit their envy and/or admiration. The best thing you can do is to be nice; just help her in this little phase and maybe you can encourage her to truly find who she is, without having to 'steal' your style.  Smiley
