Maybe it’s time to put yourself out there and get paid for serving the public with your sewing skill. Does that idea cause you to nod your head in agreement? Or maybe you’re already in demand and have been giving your services away. Maybe that’s been OK until recently when the conversations you have with yourself in your head and discussions with your immediate support system of family and friends have explored getting paid for a service people are clamoring for. What if all your sewing experience has led you to this point of making an important decision to add income to your household by sewing at home for people who stream to your studio? Wouldn’t that be exciting? It certainly could be.
Especially when you can quickly learn the ins and outs, the ups and downs, the pride and pitfalls of running a business from home with the contents of this book. Nowhere that I can find is there a collection of information about how to run the specific business of garment alterations from home as comprehensive as the pages in this book. ***Update – find everything just mentioned above in the updated version specifically geared toward these pandemic times here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08BW5Y4QV.*** Because people experience a unique love affair with clothing unlike other possessions, you need to be informed about how to conduct business on the subject of perfecting the fit of their clothing.
What you will not find in this book are the specific techniques for doing alterations. For that kind of information, you can find comprehensive video tutorials on my huge YouTube channel. Simply search for Alterations by Phyllis and learn the art from scratch or refresh your existing skills. What you will find in this book is everything else it takes to run your sewing and alterations business from home – including the exact order in which to set up your business step by step, how much money you can make, business plan, business entity formation, bookkeeping and taxes, how to prevail alongside the competition, skills assessment, policy suggestions and tools of the trade – plus many juicy stories about my personal experience. An easy 129 page ready, you can explore this world and check it all out for yourself to see if it’s a match and/or inspirational to your desires before you take the leap.
That’s why I wrote the book. Because we’re super hero sewists, you and I. The world calls and we go out to meet the demand. Or, if you design your desire to meet that demand just right, you can bring them all on home! You decide. Good luck!
