First, I started teaching. I taught my first class in April and will be teaching again later this month and will be spreading my wings even further in August to teach classes other than quilting on a home sewing machine.
Next, I joined the local quilt guild. Will I go to meetings? I don't know. Will I join in activities? I don't know. It was enough of a step to send in the application and make myself open to whatever the Universe wants to offer me through a guild. I have no pre-conceptions. I'm just open to whatever experiences there are. I'm looking at volunteer opportunities and that will further expose me to what being a member of a guild has to offer.
