About This Class

Have you always wanted to sell your sewn items in an Etsy shop or at craft fairs? Maybe you already do but you're sales are limited by how quickly you can make your items. In this class you will learn how to optimize your pattern layout and streamline your sewing process so you can sew in small batches of up to 15 items at once. This will save you time, fabric, and ultimately money!

P.S. If you like these concepts and are ready to delve into the world of industrial sewing, I highly recommend you read this blog: http://fashion-incubator.com/  It's VERY technical, basically the engineering of apparel manufacturing, but it's fascinating!
