I finished my first week back in school. As I told you I am taking classes so I can make my exams as a master craftsman in tailoring and sewing. Well the first classes I am taking have nothing to do with fabrics, buttons and thread, but numbers and lots of words I never heard before. I am learning about laws, accounting, economics, taxes and all that other background you should know if you run your own company. Its not so easy to get back into school-mode: sitting and listening all day in class and doing homework, but I have the feeling I get the hang of it and its only 2 months. So I will pull myself together and fight through, even though its an awful lot to learn and I miss sewing (more then 1 day a week). 😦 Since everyone, whatever your trade is, has to take that class, if he wants to become a master craftsman, I am learning about a lot of other crafts from my fellow classmates. And we really are a mix of a lot of different craftsmen.
I will keep you updated!
keep sewing and smiling and learning new things
thank you, I am still more thinking I am crazy.
Crazy is not always bad! 🙂 Living a creative life is just a step away from craziness I think!
The hardest part for me would be the lack of time to be in my studio making things!
thats the hardest for me, too! it just 1 week and I am already missing sewing like crazy, 1 day the week just is not enough
Keep up the hard work and it will pay off in the end!
thank you, I will try.
Kudos to you! I spent the last 7 years in grad school so I kinda know how you feel. I try to think of everyday as one day towards achieving my dream. Each day is a precious gift of experience and knowledge towards your own successful company. Love every day!
thank you for your kind words! If I manage to finish all as planned I will be a master craftsman next year in summer. How much time will it take you to graduate? and what are you studying? Or is grade-school something specific? Sorry I don’t know that system very well.
Next summer is going to be super exciting for you! I am graduating this semester, getting my PhD in Education this Saturday actually. Took 2 years for my masters and then 5 for my PhD. (Amateur) Sewing accompanied me through all 7 years.
how exciting and: Congratulations! Looks like your work pays up!
Thank you! 🙂
