Today's question is “How long should my sewing classes be?”
So an average, sewing class is around 45 minutes. This would be for children and it's very similar to them taking an art class or any of their classes in school. They're really used to a 45-minute session, so it seems to work really well.
Today's question is “How many sewing machines do I need for teaching classes?”
So, I personally like to have FOUR to SIX sewing machines in my studio, but it depends on how many students you have and what age they are.
If you have younger students, say ages 5 to 8, then maybe you want to just do a one-on-one class with them. In that case you only need one sewing machine.
Or if you decide to have two students in that class, they still need one-on-one, a dedicated time with you. So those two students could share his own machine.
Today's question is “What do I charge for sewing classes?”
Sewing classes can vary depending on what you're teaching. They may be $15 per hour. They may be up to $150 for an all day workshop. It just depends on your student, their level and what you're teaching.
Today's question is “How do I get started with my sewing teacher business?”
So starting a new business can be a little bit scary. It can be overwhelming, but I feel like starting a sewing teacher business is one of the easier businesses that I've started.
Today's question is ‘How long does it take to set up to be a sewing teacher?”
Now this is something that I think can be done relatively quickly. Unlike other businesses where you have to put a lot of time into getting set up. I feel like being a sewing teacher, you can just kind of get in and get going.
Today's question is “How do I work in teaching sewing classes when I work full time?”
The best way to do this is to teach at night. So if you were to get home around 5:00 PM or 5:30 and then normally start cooking dinner, instead of cooking dinner, you do a sewing class.
You could do a 45-minute class. And if you started at 6:00 PM then you'd be done around 7:00 PM by the time all your students left. Then you could cook dinner which wouldn’t put you behind by too much.
