Deb Robson got it absolutely right.
She manages to combine being extremely knowledgeable, professionable, friendly, relaxed, fun, approachable and being able to share her knowledge. That's the nub - there's a whole world of difference between KNOWING something and being able to share this. That's why there are crap teachers and excellent teachers the world over.
It was aimed as a beginner's session but there were all levels of ability, and she made time for everyone. Being told that what I always think is my overspinning had absolutely nothing wrong with it at all was bliss. Definitely a fan girl now, apart from anything else she is a damned nice woman.
Plenty of resources and she told all of us to take plenty home to play with, she taught the lovely lady next to me to spindle completely from scratch. It was simply a very good afternoon (if rather hard on my poor back! Seriously, I am becoming a pensioner with more aches and pains than is normal!).
T.....*** apparently this is totally incorrect, and for this I apologise without reservation. I was going to simply remove this section, but thought it was better to apologise for a prime example of what I have tried to avoid in all posts about Knit Camp, gossip and rumour rather than hard fact. I have apologised in the comments section as soon as this was pointed out, but feel it needs to be added here too. I hope the lady concerned will accept my apology - which I am trying to do as publicly as my blog will allow - and will forgive me for any hurt caused.
Ah. We went for a meal that evening and then shared a room (my friend and I, not Deb)(although I suspect she would have joined the giggling easily), much laughter and chatting. So yes, a good day.
The most unflattering photo of me imaginable, but I love the way Debs is laughing!
(I cut my fringe after I saw this bedraggled mess!)
