Hi All,
I have been on holiday for a week or so, but am back at the blog again. I think with my work and study commitments for the forseeable future I will try to blog on this site each fortnight. Also think about liking the facebook page (link is at the blog), as we are heading towards 100 likers and I will draw another random giveaway at 100!
Thanks for your ongoing support of my craft obsession
Fiona T

    I've only taught informally, one-on-one. But, my latest student was left-handed. On the fly, I taught her by showing her what I usually do and telling her to mirror it. I am wondering whether this was a good thing to do, and what other right-handed teachers do when teaching lefties.

    (My student did get the flip! I put this down to her innate talent, though, rather than to my teaching.)

    Yes Grace, It reminds me that simply being good at something doesn't make you a good teacher. You need to rethink how you do something and break it down into easy components to be able to teach the skill. Always learning!
