Members Teaching Members Workshops
Members of the Guild share their special areas of expertise with other members in Members Teaching Members workshops. Enthusiastic members teach others new techniques, special projects and knitting know-how. They share sewing and crochet projects, felting techniques, knitting with beads, and re-purposing commercially knitted sweaters into new garments.
MTM workshops are open to all members, as instructors, hosts and learners. Instructors are paid by participants directly, typically $30 for a 3-hour workshop. Workshop duration is flexible, as are days and times and locations. MTM workshops take place all over San Diego county in members’ homes, not necessarily at the instructor’s home. Hosts attend for free in exchange for opening their homes for the workshop location.
