Anyone in Seattle want to make their own pajama pants?

Now that I'm freshly unemployed, I'm thinking about teaching sewing lessons out of my apartment. I'm in Seattle, and my target demographic would likely be young adults on the hipster spectrum, like myself, and perhaps kids 8 and above.

Bonus item 3. what would you want your lessons to be like if you were my student? [more inside]

How can a student avoid paying high taxes?

I’m a student and it’s tax time. I work for my school (work study) and to help make ends meet I do consulting work (web programming) for a few reputable clients (meaning they don’t pay under the table).
