Hello Everyone, I am new to this chat. I have only been a WMI since June. I have to tell you that it has been a ton of problems.  All the cashiers tell the customers different info and wrong info.  I…Continue

I am a new Wilton Instructor in Barrie, ON Canada! I thought it would be nice to have a group for WMI's around the world to chat about ideas and issues and questions!

Hello to all my fellow Wilton Instructors,


I have taught Wilton for five years, the first for a independent store, then the last four for Michaels and now have added Jo-Anns as a second account.  This has been just a part-time job and I love it!

I have been teaching for last 2 1/2 years. I teach at Hobby Lobby in Tyler,Texas. I also do some private stuff at a local gourmet shop. I have a full time job on top of it. I teach between 5-8 classes a week. Inspiring others is what I love most.

Wow!!  You are busy!!  I'm a little nervous taking on the 2nd account at Jo-Anns because that's upping my teaching days from 2 to 4 and I'm hoping it's not too much with my full time job and I also have a business doing custom cakes on the side too.  I bake my cakes out of a little cafe up the street from my home and it's starting to really take off.   Karena, have you been teaching 5 to 8 classes for the full 2 and and half years?  How do you manage?

i work 8-5. I teach Mondays, Wednesday and Thursdays from 6-8pm. Saturdays I teach 3 classes unless one does not make. I add project classes in whereever I can. Mostly on Saturdays. I initially had another instructor that was there. She only taught three days a week. I took two of them and added Saturdays. Did i mention i have four grandgirls i keep also? Now you know i am tired. Teaching has been a blast. Getting people to think outside of their confidence level.

Yes, I bet you are tired!!  Cuz I know I am with my schedule and now I've met someone busier than me!!

Somedays. The classes are my relaxation though. It doesn't seem like work when you are having fun.
