Sew Much Value:

  • We suggest a ratio of 1 instructor for up to 8 adults enrolled in the class.
  • We suggest charging $250-$350 usd for the 15 hour course (~$17-$23/hr) depending on your market. You can charge more to include the cost of the fabric. We find giving our students the option of bringing their own fabric or purchasing it from our studio works best for us.
  • In addition to the course lesson plan, patterns & tutorials that come with this curriculum, purchasers will have never ending value, as they can teach this class an unlimited number of times. We’ve been teaching this 15 Hour sewing course at our studio in Hoboken, NJ since 2006. On average we’ve teach it 6-7 times per year. The projects and concepts included in the curriculum are timeless.
