SO i think this is the right place to put this, and i need to rant...

I am basicly my school resident craft person.  Not to brag but they pretty much crowd around my purses and scarves and other stuff i make (they had never heard of a pop tab purse-- sad), and then ask me to fix their shirts, necklaces, ect.  The really annoying thing started when the schools resident identity-less wannabe decided to try her hand.  Basicly she has gone through trying to be a goth, a druggy, a raver, a nerd and is now going for crafty.
I know i should be flattered, but the thing is, she's starting to take after my crocheting in class and she isn't all that good.  By not that good, i don't mean that her pieces turn out lopsided, i mean she can't do anything but chain.  I showed her how to single crochet and she needs my help every few minutes.  This also happens to be in band class, where one can't get away with crafting when trying to play the flute.

I'm a little irked, so thats my rant.  Bye bye now.

Eh. She is'nt that good anyways, right? There is room for more than one crafty person in school.Cheesy And, on the bright side, if she is really an identity less wannabe... she'll give it up after a while anyway. *shrug*

maybe next time kindly let her know you can only help her after class?
like the other person said, im sure she'll grow out of it. if not, its not like her skills will dramatically surpass yours within the next year or anything like that...

My brother's ex-girlfriend used to do the same thing to me. It drove me crazy. I told her off one time in a fit of annoyance and that didn't work. I actually had to sit her down and tell her to leave me alone and stop copying every little thing that I do. (it was far worse than just crafting) She has left me alone since. I should feel bad, but I have no patience with her. I never did. Actually I guess I do feel bad. Oh, well.

I think you need to tell her that if she wants help, she needs to do it after class.  Don't let someone get in the way of a good grade!

I love it when other people want crafty help - as long as it's at an appropriate time.

But it's fun to be the craftiest one I know, too.

uhhh yeah this happened to me once too. a girl in my psych class i swear was trying to steal my personality. i would wear stuff that i made and she'd say things like that's cute. and sure enough she'd go home and make something to the same idea. i got so annoyed. i know how you feel.

surrender all your battles, it's only love that makes us matter.

I'd tell her you would be happy to help her after class, but that while you can concentrate while doing your own crochet in class, it's too distracting helping her with hers.

If she is like you say she is though she will either begin to change a bit from your trends and develop her own style or move onto something completely different soon.

I did this once.  I had French class with this girl I didn't care about, and she wore a tie dress.  I asked her if she made it (yes), if she used a pattern (no), and then went home, and over a summer, made my version of it.  I was very careful, though, never to wear it on a day I had French class!  Since French was in a block schedule (every other day), this wasn't hard, and I never overtly got "caught".
