There are still some spots left in the (trade-only, sorry) classes I’m teaching at TNNA in January on social media and getting published. I just got my student list from TNNA and it’s a great mix of people, I’m very excited, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t sign up!
Not a TNNA member? Fear not! I am also teaching at Unwind in Burbank while I’m in town, and doing a book signing for The Knitgrrl Guide to Professional Knitwear Design during the anniversary party, too. Their party is going to be on my birthday, so I think cake must surely be involved no matter what, right? Right? Come have fun with us!
Here’s a link for the dyeing class I’m teaching at Unwind. I’m told it’s nearly sold out already, so we’re discussing adding a second class that day, probably 5-8:00 p.m.
In semi-related news, one of my dearest friends is going to be in Vegas for work right after TNNA and has invited us to come out and stay in her hotel room. Turning 36 has got to come with some perks, and maybe those perks involve going to Las Vegas on the cheap when it’s snowing buckets here in Cleveland! Studiomate + best pal Arabella is also coming to California with me — we’re staying with her mom while I teach. Kicking cancer’s ass (Arabella) and getting older (me) = mental environment ripe for hijinks. I’m envisioning some sort of Hunter S. Thompson-style drive across the desert. It’s a pity she won’t be able to bring the supremely fancy cane we bought her (would you risk TSA taking this away? hell no), it just seems so appropriate.
I was wondering what else was going on that week in Vegas, so I looked up all the conventions on a big online calendar. Adult Entertainment Expo 2011, Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Inc. Global Franchise Meeting or the National Potato Council 2011 Potato Expo? Me, I’d sneak into any one of those for laughs. And can you imagine the samples?
