Please note that for a telephone class proposal, a proposal must be submitted five weeks before the class date and that an email class proposal must be

date. This is to ensure that there is time for the class to be placed on the site and for students to have time to sign up for your class and purchase




What happens after I send in my class proposal?


1: you will receive an email from our class registrar confirming that your proposal has been received.

2. Our website administrator will post your class information to our website.

3: As soon as your class has been posted to our website, you will receive another email letting you know that your class page is up on the website and ready for sign up. You can find your class on either the calendar or current classes pages. There will be a link to your class page as well as the date, time and sign up deadline for your class.


It is at this time that you can begin chatting up your class on our listserv.


4: About a week before a phone class you will be sent an important email. This email will contain basic information about the class, dates and times, as well as a specific phone number and access code, which you will be using for the conference call during the class, or a zoom link for a zoom class. Below this information will be a list of all the students in your class, including names, emails and phone numbers. The reason you are given this information is that you will now need to contact each of your students via email to send them a welcome message containing the basic information about the class including date, time, and phone number.

Be certain not to send the class list to your students. This is private information for only you as instructor.


5: for an email class, A week before your class is to begin you will receive an email with a list of the students who have signed up to take your class.

Our class registrar will also receive this list and will create a special email list for your class.

A few days before the date set for an email class, you will receive an email letting you know that the email list for your specific class has been created. You and All members of your class are subscribed by the class registrar to this special list. What you need to do next is to send a welcome message to the special list for your class and say hello to all of your students. It is a good idea to ask all students to check in to ensure that everyone is subscribed to the list and receiving emails. When everyone has checked in you are ready to write your first lesson post.


6: On rare occasions, you may need to cancel a class. If this happens you can post a message to the Krafters Korner listserv, send emails to your students, or even call them to let them know that you have had to cancel the class. Of course, the sooner you can contact folks the better.


What are pop up classes?


If you prefer you can schedule a “pop up” class. This type of class needs to be scheduled only two weeks before the starting class date. This type of class

is not posted on the website for sign up. Instead

the instructor must advertise their own class on the listserv and must ask students to email them privately to sign up.

Contact Joyce or Debbie first to get a date and time placed in the class schedule.


Good luck and enjoy your teaching experience on Krafters Korner. Our members greatly appreciate your willingness to help others to learn a craft and/or make something, they have never made before.
