Marketing

You might find it surprising that you're probably going to spend more time on marketing than sewing, teaching or any of the other things you probably thought you'd be doing when you started your sewing business.

Face it, if you're not actively marketing your classes, you're not getting sign ups and then you're not teaching anyone how to sew. Without a good marketing strategy your business is not going to be successful. 

Marketing is something we take very seriously around here. Megan's career background was not in fashion, but in advertising & marketing and she's used this experience to grow her business to more than 20 sewing classes per week. 

We often write about our favorite methods of marketing in our studio including email marketing, social media, promotional items, website & search engine optimization, in-studio events, charity events, street fairs, runway shows, parties & so many more.
