I've had a little dream about being a sewing teacher.
This all started with my unsettled feelings about my current situation. I've been feeling "unsettled" for a while now.
All day at work I dream about sewing projects. I sneak peeks at sewing blogs and assemble my online hoarding board (i.e., Pinterest).
Speaking of Pinterest, have you seen all the DIY sewing stuff out there? I really think that apparel sewing is making a comeback.
So I've been thinking about my place in life and what I love to do and what I would do if money didn't matter.
What keeps coming back to me is that I have always loved to sew. My mom bought me a sewing machine when I was 14 because I was always using hers when she wanted to use it.
I have been sewing for over 20 years and I still get jazzed about it.
I do not love to sew for other people. I've done a few commissioned projects and hated it every time.
I do love to teach though. I love it when I show someone how to do something and they get that little light in their eyes.
It's still pretty far fetched that I could start a sewing school and keep myself relatively employed just teaching sewing. Currently I'm just trying to find a spot to teach a class and test the waters.
What are your thoughts? With the plethora of articles and videos on the www is there still a place for face-to-face teaching?
