Teaching a class

My LYS want me to teach a class on the teddy bear I designed. Almost finished writing the pattern.

The class will be about two hours over 2 days. Should I do this for free? Get paid? If so, how much? Sale the pattern? If so how much?

Baby Cozy and Hat

Pattern called for this to be green and be a pea pod. I had left over dark gray. I guess mine is a black bean.

I was working on another pair of cigar gloves this weekend. I thought of a trick to reduce the number of ends to sew in.
