One of the most rewarding things about sewing, is the opportunity to pass on your knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject to others. Seeing other people have success thanks to your instruction is priceless. It's even better if you pass on that love of sewing to young people. Some of you might already be doing that on an informal basis.
If you want to take it a step further, and offer sewing lessons as a small business, then I have a great giveaway for you today.

An extract about the class from her site:
Love sewing? Love to teach kids? Love to make money? Turn your passion for sewing into a stream of income with the Seams Sew Cool Program. I created this program 5 years ago and have successfully taught hundreds of kids to sew in my home sewing studio. Learning to sew is sweeping the country, and parents want their kids to learn to sew.
A Guide to Starting a Business Teaching Kids to Sew features a 45 page e-book walking you through how to set up your area and start teaching kids to sew, 13 patterns and written
instructions from the sewing 100 series program to use in the classroom, and 31 videos to teach
you how I teach the Seams Sew Cool Program. New techniques are introduced with each
project so you can teach skills and help the student feel confident one project at a time. The Series 100 patterns are for you to use over and over in your classroom…..no need to keep purchasing patterns for new students!!! In the Sewing 100 series (pattern kits 101, 102, 103), there will be lessons to teach the student for 7 to 9 months (2-hour lesson every other week). Once the 100 series has been completed, the student will move on to the next series.

I have not tried to teach anyone before, but would love to teach my daughter.
Thank you for a chance to win! I have been thinking about this idea for a while.
I am working on teaching my granddaughter ro sew, and have been asked for lessons for a couple of others. This would be a great way to start a small retirement job
Thanks for this – I’m teaching adults to sew on a one-to-one basis, but with dreams to set up classes for both adults and kids. Me, I learned to sew age 5 from my mum’s knee – literally! It’s the best way to start 🙂
Would like to start a husiness teaching kids and adults to sew. This e class would be a tremendous help.
I’ve taught my own children some and I’d like to do a better job with them in the future. I find teaching sewing classes to be a very appealing way to make some extra money but have no idea where to start.
