The Business of Teaching Sewing Book


The BUSINE$$ of Teaching Sewing

SECOND EDITION by Marcy Miller and Pati Palmer

Now is the ideal time to enter the business of teaching sewing. As sewing curriculum in the schools diminishes, thousands are looking elsewhere to learn to sew, or to improve their sewing skills. This newly revised book compiles more than 30 years of teaching ideas gleaned from thousands of classes taught by Palmer/Pletsch corporate educators. The authors guide you through setting up a business, identifying what, where and when to teach, creating lesson plans and visuals for teaching, then marketing yourself and your “product.” Reproducible and editable business forms and teaching handouts give you a head start on making money teaching sewing.
