Stitching for Profit Started back in 1991 when my wife and business partner was still doing dressmaking as a full time career. The Price for Profit, Software was created and tuned over the last 20 years, to remove the emotions when getting to price your product or service.

Section 1: Introduction

How can you Price a Product or Service and Make More Profit

During 1991 when I started sewing for my first customer I knew that I had to become a professional custom clothier. I wish I knew then what I know now. My quality of work was always excellent and my delivery not always on time, due to items I had to create in the nick of time for other customers that rushed in on Wednesday for this Saturdays function, and I allowed them to run my business.

I had a passion for working with different fabrics, and I love to dress well.

Philip taught to me that success is not an end result, but a way of living. Security is an internal factor that I could only find in myself, nobody could offer me ten bags of security for this month, and I could not buy it from any store.

I was determine to make a success, and though my kitchen was not always spick and span, my sewing room was where I wanted to be.

Instructor Biography

Jacqui Viljoen, Teaching Bernina Embroidery Software @ School of Digitizing

Jacqui Viljoen has been teaching Fashion and Dress design since 1994. In 2004 she opened her Bernina Franchise in Benoni, South Africa and has been teaching Bernina Embroidery Software since. First as Bernina Dealer in Benoni South Africa in her studio in Benoni and as from 2009, online as Principal at School of Digitizing.

Like most dealers I had to work for a specific target, and sales had to be my first priority, which leads to not be able to give that exclusive and undivided attention on training in the Bernina Embroidery Software like you deserve....... well I wanted more time there, so much so that one day I decided this is it! I am out!

Sold the shop, took a leap year to discover and learn and research all I wanted to know about Bernina Embroidery Software, and as I grew into it the opportunity to start teaching Embird and Bernina embroidery software using Internet, Webinar, Skype etc came to me in the form and shape of hubby.

Oh, and computers? Well I still feel I only need to know enough to be able to run my Bernina embroidery software.... and to be honest: my backup support system is trustworthy, and not only me, but even you will benefit from me and my backup system.

First I started with the Bernina Embroidery Software, and my dream is to get hold of every frustrated and the feeling of helpless person who has the embroidery software and guide you through the fun and excitement we are suppose to have, not frustrations.

After one year in teaching the Bernina embroidery software V5 then, the need to help for basic Embird embroidery software classes crossed me too.

Immediately I started dreaming of seeing each Bernina embroidery software user in the world having a hard time understanding their program, I want to help all!

You should have fun, not a hard time.

I cannot describe in words the excitement I felt, and still do, and those of members joining us every time we tune in for a class on Bernina embroidery software from V5 and on wards with regular updates and later Bernina Cutwork Software.

It is overwhelming, exiting, amazing and fun!

I want to share my knowledge in Bernina embroidery software with the world, and Internet is the answer.

Wendy from Australia gets up at 3.00am in the mornings, she enjoys her Bernina embroidery software classes so much that she don't mind doing it.

She does not have to do it, She wants to do it. She loves to do it, and here is in her own words what she has to say about our Bernina embroidery software classes:

"" Hi Jacqui

My experience of being a member with Sewpride:- (this was the name I used before Schoolofdigitizing - same place, just a different name)

I am 75 yrs. old and have been sewing ever since I can remember.

When I retired 10 yrs ago I bought a new embroidery/machine (Janome) it broke down just before Christmas last year and I decided to buy the Bernina aurora 440.

The difference in embroidery sewing has changed such a lot in those years and I found myself floundering.

I had lessons from the shop where I bought the machine. The cost was $25.00 one lesson per month; we started projects but never finished them.

I turned to the Internet and found a lot of help. I downloaded lessons and began to get the hang of things. I came across your lessons and they made a lot of sense to me. I think of them as master classes, they give inspiration to work on new projects, I love the webinar where we can interact with others also the help you give when it is needed.

I am feeling more competent week by week, thank you Jacqui.

Wendy ""
