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.
In general, a student that is ages 6 to 12, would be in a one hour class and that would be around $15 to $35 depending on your area and what the class is.
If it's more fashion oriented than maybe it would be on the upper end of that.
But if it's basic sewing, I charged $25 for 45-minute class. But some people charge as low as $15 per student in a group class.
You’d actually have them sign up for an entire course that lasts maybe 12 weeks. And then each month they pay whatever the price is. So if it was just $15 a week, times four, that would be a $60 a month class.
You never want to sell them as just one single class. You can figure it out mathematically and tell your parents it's $15 per lesson, but you don't have them come in and just pay for one lesson at a time. You actually have them pay by the month.
So if you are selling a package to the girls, it can be anywhere from $60 to a $100 dollars a month. So it would be $15 to $25 per class.
And if you were doing a teen class, it could be anywhere from, let's say $80 to a $150. So that would be around $20 up to $40 per class (would be $160).
Then there are all day workshops. Sometimes those can be even more. But they're usually priced around that same $15 to $35 an hour. So if you were doing an 8-hour workshop, then probably the minimum price would be around a $100 dollars.
But if it was really detailed and you were making a pair of slacks and putting an zippers and pockets and teaching tailoring, then it could be more. You could be charging $350 for that workshop and maybe it's even a two day workshop.
So, I hope that answers your question and I will see you in another Q & A video. All right, bye-bye.
