Join us for an in-person meeting where we’ll experience 10-minute “Class Tastings” presented by some of our NCQC teachers. The DEMOs will be fast & fun and we’ll have time for about 9 rounds.
While the 3-minute presentations at our April & July “MEET THE TEACHERS” programs give a FLAVOR of our NCQC Teachers, at our January 10th “Jumpstart” meeting you'll actually get a TASTE of their classroom methods.
This a great way to experience the personalities & teaching styles that each teacher will bring to your store or guild!
Bring a friend along to enjoy the program & drive home together in conversation about who you’ll want to book first! You’ll have your workshops & programs for the upcoming year well in hand by the time you get home.
