One of my favorite things about this revenue stream, other than engaging with other amazing quilters in person, is that you can know and plan for how much money you will make this year.
Since you will have set fees and signed contracts you can budget and plan your income in advance.
Teaching in-person events is the quickest and simplest way to build a business in the quilting industry. With popular and tested curriculum that is in high demand you shouldn't have any problem filling up your calendar.
At a typical in-person event you could earn:
Total: $1,000 or more per event
This is a rough estimate. You can always determine your own rates and your product sales will vary. Some guilds / shops choose to book multiple workshops in a single event which would obviously increase your earnings.
There is a lot included with your certification!
