Teaching has been picking up pace. Monday had 9 people signed up for Arm Knitting! NINE! My second largest class was only 4! It was definitely a new experience, but a fun one for me. I hope all the rest of my students enjoyed themselves. Nearly everyone left with a completed double-wrap cowl (only one person gave up, our resident Crocheter who has always refused to learn to knit) and an enthusiasm to return for the Yarn Night in March. Maybe I can convince our Crocheter to give Arm Knitting another try…
Tonight I finished my own Arm Knitting cowl that I didn’t have time to complete Monday night – and I even had enough to make a single-wrap cowl with the left over yarn. While knitting, I came across this post by Kyla Roma and I loved the idea of interviewing your clients instead of “imagining your ideal customer.” I have never been good at “guessing” who my ideal customer is because I am always (happily!) surprised at who stops at my table, what they pick up, and even their comments/suggestions educates and inspires me. Maybe I can start handing out a brief questionnaire and ask them to fill it out in exchange for a discount? Would that peak your interest at your local art fairs?
Help me write an inspiring + constructive questionnaire. What questions do you wish your favorite craft biz owners knew about you?
