  1. rhonda24605 Yes, you can still do the classes without teaching at Michaels. Teaching at Michaels while doing the certification is a bonus option.
  2. I am still waiting for the manual...it has been since the Labor Day weekend. I am finding the lack of communication is really pathetic. Did you have any issues with communication? I think this program has taken off faster than they hoped it would and do not have enough people to help with getting them registered, passwords to the web site, and manuals to the participants.
  3. I am just starting the certification process. I cannot comment on whether it has helped. Actually, I am still waiting for my manual to get started. I was curious if anyone else was doing the certification program or have done it. I don't think it would make a difference to be certified or not to teach crochet. I am basically doing it so I can work at Michael's and eventually may want to expand upon that.
  4. Hello Steph! You can actually teach while going through the program. You don't have to be certified just yet, but you do have to be enrolled in the program. Here is a link for more information. http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/Discover.html It will take some work on your end to get the people signed up, but once you get them, I'm sure it will grow like wild fire. You get 90% of the class fee from each student as payment. You will also get paid an hourly wage, depends on your manager, for doing demonstrations, project boards, etc. However, this is where you get what you put into it
  5. Auka, How long did it take you to go through both levels? I am still waiting for my manual but I have been hired by Michael's to teach crochet. I will be doing the correspondence course as well.
  6. Mary CYC is Craft Yarn Council and CIP is Crochet Instructor Program. In order to be hired at Michael's craft stores to teach crochet or knitting you need to be certified through CYC. Hope that helps.
  7. Hello All! How many of you are doing the CIP by the CYC and are instructors at Michael's?
  8. I lose the crochet hook if I sit it down to do something else...
  9. I would consider myself an advanced, bordering on expert. There really is not much I cannot make and have started to write my own patterns. Now, mind you, this is strictly plain crocheting with yarn/thread, not beads, wire, etc. I have done doilies, table runners, coasters all in thread; I have done ponchos, sweaters, stuffed animals, tunisian, tapestry, etc. I think in order to rate someone it depends on the different stitches you know how to do and different items you can make and whether you can design. All in all, it does not matter what level you are, as long as you enjoy what y
  10. I *was* from Hunker, PA (40 miles east of Pittsburgh) until June when we moved to Shelbyville, KY. I lived in Pennsylvania for 27 years. I love it here in KY. My mom moved here with us last month as well. Hope
