I have been asked to teach a landscape quilt class.  At first it was exciting but when I went to her with the description of the class and the material list she stated that she didn't want any of these classes to cost her money.  I was surprised to say the least because the materials were included in the cost of the class.  Boy was I confused.  I explained to her that I wanted to teach from a certain book that was a favorite and that the students were paying for it.  This didn't seem to make a difference to her and she said that she got stuck with too many books for classes that never happened.  She then asked me if I just couldn't copy from the book like other teachers had.  I told her that I couldn't do that because of copy write infringement.  She wasn't happy when I said that.  On top of this issue, I was told by another teacher that she takes half of what the student is charged.  I would think she would encourage classes which would help her sell kits, material, etc.

One thing is certain,  I am not making copies and am now considering teaching a smaller class in my studio.
