While I was sitting with my bobbin lace display at the Known World A&S
Display on Monday someone suggested I contact you about teaching a
beginner's bobbin lace class at East Kingdom University in November.
I'm trying to make a decision on this and wanted to know if the deadline
for registering classes has already passed. Also, could you tell me if
this class sounds like a good fit for you? It would be 2 hours and would
have to be limited to five people (others can audit but I can only afford
to put together 5 kits at a time). The kit fee would be $35. I know this
is expensive for a University class and am wondering at the likelyhood of
people being willing to take such a class. That is the standard kit fee
in Atlantia and represents the true cost of the beginner's kit.
I'm thinking about doing this, but would need to make a decision pretty
soon since I'd be coming up from the Washington DC area.
you can certainly still register to teach this class. To me it sounds very
interesting, but i am a very beginner of bobbin lace myself, and would want
to take the class :)
I know that of the local populace, there will be many interested in such a
thing, and that is saying nothing of those who come from outside our
I think that while $35 is somewhat high, it is reasonable as supplies are
expensive, and if properly publicized, no one will be surprised to find they
have to pay.
I think you should definitely teach the class.
I think that it sounds wonderful. I don't think the fee is too high based on
what you are offering. Once I unpack from Pennsic... I will concentrate on
that EKU. Consider yourself on the program.
