Bee, a cuppa on Skype sounds like a great idea as we move along. What yarn shop have you worked in? Are you still there? I’ve worked in yarn shops (clerk and teacher), edited fiber books and magazines, and so on. . . .
By the way, there is already a course that hits some basics really well: it’s Know Your Wool, on the Craftsy platform, and it’s free for people to view. It’s one of the courses intended to get people familiar with Craftsy. It’s solid and it was great fun to make–a very co-creative process.
Thanks for your note!
