So a very famous knitting teacher (Cat Bordhi) is coming to my area. I want to attend a class and she will be teaching 3. She will be at a yarn shop that is not my favorite, but I go there when I need something I can't get elsewhere. My wife and I have been fair customers (we live 1.5 hours away so we can't go weekly). I was contacted by the owner about signing up for a class and I told her which one I wanted to take. She told me that one was full (this conversation happened over a week ago). I told her I would probably sign up for another class instead. Since we had this conversation she has posted on Ravelry about class openings (in the class I wish to take) and sent out an email stating there are opening in all 3 classes. I sent an forum post to reply to the class openings on Ravelry about still wanting a spot if one came available. She said she would put me on the waiting list. After this posting is when she sent out the email about openings in all classes. (Confused, yeah so am I). Then I got a personal message through Ravelry saying that she wished she had known earlier that I wanted to take the class. She offered spots to her "current customers" and said she had not seen me in a year. Well I was actually in her store near the end of the summer, told her I was coming in advance, and she totally ignored my wife and I while we were there (for more than 30 minutes probably why she doesn't remember that I have been in more recently than a year). We did not spend very much money that day due to being ignored. I have made shop models for this owner, posted positively on shop sites, and spent a large amount of money here when I have needed yarn that only she carried. This is not the first poor experience I have had at her shop.
I really want to take a class with Cat, but I am really tired of dealing with this LYS owner. Please tell me what you think.
