Hello I was asked to start an adult sewing course in lakewood mornings or evenings beginner and intermediate. What would you want to learn if you had the chance?what is a fair price?
I gave a series of sewing workshops over 8 years ago so I dont remember the rates...
Thanks all!

I take lessons elsewhere in central NJ. Adult classes at all levels are $60 per month, usually four one-hour sessions that tend to run long. There are never more than four students, usually two or three. I'm not sure if this is the going rate as I have not shopped around, but I think it is fair.

When I say workshop I really mean a series of classes Smile

Thanks for the response. I guess that would make me advanced.

Make something useful.
Shabbos skirt
Baby blanket
Sleeveless lined dress

The 4-part sewing class I took as a girl had the option of a skirt/jumper/shorts.

I took one as a tween and made pj pants!! I wouldn't remember how much my mom paid...
The classes were really fun, but we didn't have a sewing machine, so I totally forgot how to use it...

beginners should learn basic stuff like sewing a hem, button, tacking, sewing up slits and other basic alterations, cutting out a pattern and an easy project on the machine. In school we made an apron, but it would probably be more useful to teach a skirt pattern.

I doubt anyone would wear their own homemade skirt from a beginners sewing class... A homemade apron on the otherhand... why not!

When I learned how to sew, I did a basic little girls dress from a pattern. Bought double fabric and sewed two of the same dress for each of my DD's. They were little then, and wore those dresses very proudly.

I also did a course for sewing curtains. I've since sewn curtains, throw pillows, table runners, fitted sheets, quilt covers, etc..and I do most alterations for my girls myself - in fact I find that the most useful (and cost effective! I save hundreds per year by doing alterations myself.)

I still don't feel that I sew well enough to actually sew something for myself to wear.

Would that include materials? If not, it might be a little high.

possibly that may include supplies. I want to keep the price fair but worth my time as well...

I took a class some time ago and I think it was about $100 for 10 lessons, 2 hours each, once a week. You just needed to bring your own fabric and they had all the rest, including a selection of patterns to choose from.

That is dirt cheap. Where was this, what kind of place?

If you don't include supplies, go to a fabric store that you shop in and ask them that if you send your students there, can they get a small discount.

A community center in Montreal. It's not a Jewish place but I've heard of and seen a couple of frum women going there. They have several places offering such classes for about the same price.
