Hi Danyell! Oh this is such an old post we actually have been hanging out at coffee shops and whatever cool art/craft festivals we can find to go to. All talk, but no beer lol. What kinds of crafts do you do? Where do ya work and stuff? I work up at Dick Blick in Fairview and I teach an art class to kids at the Caty Cavins center.

Haha...I work at Michaels in Fairview Heights as a Custom Framer. I'm hoping to be able to quit doing that for a bit and teach classes on crochetting, even thought my passion is knitting.

My main craft seems to be spinning, lately, but I also love to knit, crochet, sew, ....do anything!

I made this yarn last night!

How cool! They are building that new Michaels next to Target, will they be closing the fairview store when that opens? I just learned to spin wool a couple weeks ago and I so love it!!! Your yarn is beautiful (mine lookis much more lumpy lol)! Only problem is that I do not know how to knit, and have only dabbled in crochet. I want to learn though. I actually picked up a flyer last time I was at Michaels and was thinking of taking one of those classes after the holidays. If you are looking to teach elsewhere though I would certainly run the knit/crochet class idea past the Parks and Rec. Director! They just put out the fall/winter schedule, but you could set it up for spring. It's pretty cool there, they basically let me teach whatever classes I want, charge whatever I want and they get 35% of the cut. I have a new "Get Crafty" series of workshops I'm doing for kids. It's pretty much aimed at girls to get them interested in crafting. We'll be making ipod cozies from felt and stuff like that.  Grin

Yeah, I would love to teach a spinning or knitting class there! Run it by them! Don't hesistate.

I will be teaching a soap-making class on November 25th at Michaels for $10...you only buy the raw soap. I provide dyes and colors.


They are moving the Fairview Heights store to O'Fallon....and the Fairview Heights one is becoming  a Jo Anns! We are moving around January!

Holy shnikees. I don't know what I'm more excited about now, Michaels being closer to home or that they are going to have a Super-Joanne's! I had no idea and I guess am a little bummed because Joanne's is right next store to us now and I go over there a lot on my breaks. Oh weeell Cheesy
I will run your class ideas by Andy, our parks and rec director next time I see him, I'm sure he'll go for it Wink

Hehe. I haven't been in a Jo-Anns for yeeeeeaaaars, so I'm sure I'll need to run by and check it all out.

I hope Andy likes the idea!
