Organizing stuff

whip lash challenge

As I told you before (24/05) I work hard on becomming an organized person and what I´m trying right now is to get in control over all my knitting patterns, notes, yarn and stuff. 1th June I´m going for my examination in needlecraft at the college of education/teachers´ college. And even thougt I regard myself to be a quite skilled person in this field, it´s a clearly different approach, when you have to prove you can teach others! The big issue is not what you are able to create, but how you manage to get your ideás and knowledge passed on.

How do you inspire, encourage and support creativeness and help students to develop their own idéas and skills?! This is what I´m going to lecture on, but first of all i have to organize my material!

    I teach crazy quilting, and my mantra to my students is “There are no mistakes, only design opportunities”. I don’t know how well that would work with a project that requires that you strictly follow a pattern (but maybe following-or not-a pattern strictly is an option?). I think mostly it’s encouraging my students to keep going, even if they make a “mistake”. And not judging them harshly; instead of “oh, you should make your stitches smaller”, I try to say things like “Nice large stitches! Next time you might want to try making them a little smaller, so the scale will fit with the piece you’re working on” or something like that.
    good luck with your program! Teaching is a BLAST!! You’ll love it!
