- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I have an hourly rate of $75, although customers can save a bit by buying lesson packages of multiple hours.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The first step is to discover what your sewing goals are, and how much experience you have (zero is a totally acceptable answer). Then we decide on the number of instruction hours needed to achieve your goals. For brand new beginners, I recommend we start with a two hour introductory lesson. That lesson covers all the basics, and includes the opportunity to complete a small project, so you can see your new skills in action! I provide everything necessary for the introductory lesson (including a sewing machine if necessary).
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I've been sewing my whole life, and running a business where I sell the fashion accessories I design and make since 2004. I've been teaching sewing professionally since 2010, in both group and individual private lessons.
