Welcome to the Blog for Sewing Businesses

Hello!  I’m Denise Hall, pattern designer and author.  My partner Sarah Doyle, pattern maker, instructor and author, and I would like to welcome you to our newest passion – our new blog for small and medium sized sewing based businesses.  Sarah is also my mother and we’ve both spent our lives earning incomes from sewing in some fashion or another.  Mother learned to make patterns from her own measurements through a Chinese interpreter while we were stationed in Taiwan through the Air Force when I was a kid.  Her friends all wanted her to teach them once she got the hang of it so she wrote up instruction manuals and began teaching classes over 30 years ago.  She now has over twenty books she’s written on custom patternmaking techniques and other sewing topics, as well as several lines of custom specialty patterns.

While I was growing up I made extra money sewing for people and doing alterations from home for other businesses such as dry cleaners.  I later also became interested in creating patterns and have authored a number of specialty sewing books.  We have found such joy along with success in creating our own sewing based businesses that we felt compelled to create this site as a tribute to others who either currently earn, or would like to earn a living in the field of sewing and crafting!  We look forward to sharing special projects, business tips, product and website reviews, and exciting Business Spotlights of promising creative endeavors.  Thanks so much for visiting with us!
