Marie Segares of the Underground Crafter and Creative Yarn Entrepreneur Show has created an invaluable tool for those who are considering venturing into the world of teaching crochet. It's even a great refresher resource for current fiber instructors. Available in multiple formats, it's convenient for absolutely everyone no matter what their "technology" comfort level is! In 5 easy to navigate through sections like "Getting started", "The business side of things", "Marketing", "Prepping for class" and "Resources" you'll gain the skills and confidence to bring your money making crochet business to the next level, whatever that "next level" for you is.

What's in the Book?

This practical, hands-on guide will get you ready to start teaching crochet for the first time, or inspire you to expand your existing crochet teaching business so you can make more money.

Start by setting your teaching goals using guiding questions. Then, learn how to put the right structures in place for your business so you can reach those goals. The book covers business basics like determining what types of payments to accept, setting up cancellation policies, and more. Inside, you’ll find proven marketing strategies and tactics to help you reach the right students and price your classes correctly. Finally, you’ll get organized by developing course descriptions, lesson plans, and packing lists for your classes. The resources section shares free and low-cost resources to help you expand your business, stay on top of the latest trends in crochet, network with other teachers, promote your classes, and more.

While there is plenty of useful information in the book for crocheters who are considering teaching as a hobby, or those who want to teach other crafts for profit, the focus is on developing a sustainable part-time business teaching crochet. If you love crochet and are ready to use your passion to earn side income or to supplement your full time crochet business, Make Money Teaching Crochet is the book for you!
