Knitting Demonstrator Resume

Knitting demonstrators are the people that show other people how to hand make their garments, accessories or home items using knitting techniques and knitting instruments, such as needles and yarn. They have to be very versatile in knitting in order to be able to respond to any enquiry of the public and give high quality and reliable advice in knitting activities. They have to be able to demonstrate practically what they present theoretically and guide closely different members of the public in accomplishing the same results using the techniques in question.

They suggest types of yarns that should be used for different projects, types of gauges and methods to calculate gauges, types of measurements for garments and stitches and techniques useful in obtaining a professional final result. They can also be in charge of selling different items needed in the knitting activity, or in manufacturing them - a lot of handmade crafters like to manufacture their own instruments or materials, such as yarns.

The resume of a knitting demonstrator should emphasize on the candidate's skills as a knitter, past achievements, inclination towards teaching other people and passion.
