**DISCLAIMER**

Skype was not behaving during the recording of our podcast so we had to use Zoom, needless to say, the quality is not as good as normal. I do apologize and I PROMISE once you get used to the "bubbling abyss ocean sounds", you'll be fine!

It would be an extreme disservice to the crafting community if I did not have the bomdiggityshizznit of all crafters on the show to talk about her incredibly cool method of hosting card classes and retreats. If you are considering starting a card class outside of the how or you are feeling like you want to branch out and start hosting retreats, this podcast is for you!

Lydia shares some of her million dollar secrets, talks about what it takes to host a successful retreat AND we also talk podcasts and serial killers...ya, we're an eclectic bunch!

SHOW NOTES

Hosting Classes Outside the Home

#1 piece of advice: Frequent a local establishment, find out when their slow times are and approach them with the idea of you teaching an art class during this time. Don't forget to be kind, courteous and to let them know you will encourage your attendees to purchase food after the class.

Retreats

#1 piece of advice: Attend retreats before hosting your own. Find out what you like or don't like.

Lydia's Favorites

Favorite technique: Decorating backgrounds - anything inky and messy
