  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 and your students signed up by the demonstrations and promoting of the classes. You can easily earn your certification fee back from teaching. I finally got a sign up today for a class, which will be held on October 1. Today was my third day of demonstrating in a week and I finally got a student. I have others interested but did not commit just yet. Let me know if you have any other questions.
  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. It appears this has not be discussed for quite some time. I will continue to search further through previous posts. In the meantime, can anyone comment on the types of information you will need to complete? Thanks in advance!
  10. Hello from Shelbyville, KY. Where in Indiana are you?
  11. I was thinking of possibly starting a get together in January. What does everyone think?
  12. Donna, We could always have a field trip your way. I was thinking of traveling around KY for our group once a month, maybe twice a month. What do you all think?
  13. Teri, You are the only response so far. I know there are a lot of Kentucky crocheters here on this list, but no one has replied. I am open to getting a group together. Lexington is about one hour away. I used to work in Lexington and then transferred to Louisville. Lexington is so beautiful. We could do a "traveling" group. Where we can meet at different members homes each month. What do you think?
  14. Your doily is beautiful. I hope you continue to work with thread. I love thread.
  15. Hello from Shelbyville, KY. I lived in Southwest Pennsylvania for 27 years. Been in Kentucky for a little of three years now! Welcome
  16. Are old publications worth any money? How old do they have to be? I have a bunch of old publications, some from 1920 and are in good condition. Would they be worth anything?
  17. Hello All! I have been a member of Crochetville since 2005. I mainly lurk, sorry about that. I recently rejoined CGOA and noticed there are no Kentucky Chapters. Would anyone be interested in forming a CGOA chapter in the Louisville or Lexington area? I would be interested in getting it started if I can have a commitment of members. You do not need to be a member of CGOA in order to be a chapter member. What do you Kentucky crocheters say? Hope Kremer Shelbyville, KY
  18. Hello from Shelbyville, Ky. Nice to see another Kentuckian... Hope
  19. I like both as well. I love the look of doilies. I just found a pattern book using three strands of sewing thread...has anyone worked with sewing thread? I'm anxious to try it. Hope
  20. These are the best ever booties! I just finished one in about 45 minutes. Thank you for sharing.
  21. Is this group still meeting? I'm in Shelbyville and would be interested in meeting up.
  22. 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 you do and make people happy with you items... Hope Shelbyville, KY
  23. I have only done a few patterns multiple times. I get bored with the item after the first time. My mom on the other hand makes the same thing over and over and over and over...that is because she refuses to learn how to read a pattern and makes me walk her through it. She has been making the kind of shawl for the past year, probably has made close to 100, literally... She is working on the round ripple now and has make about 20 of those...drives me crazy. I keep asking her "Aren't you bored with that yet?" She just keeps making them. Hope Shelbyville, KY
