What do things really cost? How much should you spend on fabric? Notions? Tools? Equipment? Get the basics of everything you need to know in order to set up a comprehensive cost sheet that will account for all of your expenses. Learn a costing strategy that will allow you to plan for what you can afford before you start designing your line or purchasing fabric. That will help you determine how much to charge for your product.  You’ll also receive handouts and tools to take home with you.  Pre-req:  Must know Excel or have taken the Excel for Apparel class.
