Tutor on the Eastern Seaboard?
« on: June 22, 2019, 06:45:44 PM »
Hiya,
I am looking for someone in or around Rockville, Maryland who would be able to give one-on-one instruction to my husband to help him get over the beginning stages of fancy and decorative knotwork. We can come to you almost anywhere, I'm thinking that a half day to a whole day would be perfect.


Any takers? What would you charge?

Thanks much,

Liisa

Wow!  No takers?   Illness and remoteness prevent me from volunteering, but there gotta be someone who can help out.  Sounds a very serious student.

We are a sparse group.  Even in major metropolitan areas, you may be lucky to find a dozen within a couple hours drive.

Vince, how about you try skype?  You certainly have the knowledge.  I get on on your website and marvel at the things you do every now and then.  Doing it on video would present some problems (or would for me).

Hi.  I haven't been active at knotting in many years, haven't been on this forum, just got an email from a friend about this. Unfortunately I won't be available until late July, but if you get no responses by then feel free to contact me. I live near Wheaton, am retired, and would be happy to spend an afternoon with a knottyer, haven't seen any such in years.  However, I am by no means an expert.  I spent many enjoyable years learning a bit of this and that from some really excellent knottters, produced some credible results, but today could certainly not whip out a gaucho knot from memory.  What I could do is sit with you, with whatever tutorial you have found that you want to try, I could work with you on it, and, having gone through the learning process myself, possibly pass on some useful advice.  Or at least encouragement.  I would not charge for that, of course,  it would be fun to tie a knot or two after all these years.  Let me know if this is of interest to you.

I have a friend in the general area who agreed to help.  If still interested, please contact me let me know and I will pass along his details.

Yours in knotting,
Jim
