I'M SO EXCITED!!!

Yesterday I received a voice mail from a young lady at the retail store where I applied for an "instructor" position. I returned her call today and made arrangements to meet with her tomorrow afternoon. She asked that I bring samples of my work - knitting, sewing, whatever. So I think I will gather a few pieces of jewelry, the hats and scarves shown below (sans the grey heather - its in the mail), and trek on over with my wares. She gave me the impression that they are desperate for instructors of all sorts. After years of not having the confidence I believe it takes to teach a class and stand in front of total strangers - class after class...I feel that I can definitely do that and more. I will knock their socks off. I may even take a class or two. I never could paint, so that would be a good one for me to take.

Have any of you ever taken any sort of crafts classes or wanted to take one and just haven't gotten around to it? What are you interested in learning, and why haven't you taken the classes yet? If you took a class what did you like most about it? What did you like least? Did you learn what you thought you'd need to learn? Do you still use those skills that you learned?
