Start An Embroidery Business From Home

DRC/Gary PayneA home based embroidery business can be an excellent option for people wanting to sew up a little extra income.  It’s easier than it may seam if you have the right equipment, and there are many benefits.

Make Your Own Hours – Work mornings, evenings, weekends, part-time or full-time, it is completely up to you and your schedule.

Minimal Investment – If you’ve got some embroidery experience and access to a machine, then your start-up expenses will be minor.  You’ll need to print up flyers, maybe some business cards, and decide how to best get the word out.  Free classifieds like CraigsList and community bulletin boards can get you started.

Unlimited Customers – The possibilities for marketing your services are endless – corporate logo apparel, school sports groups, pet items, weddings, family reunions, personalized gifts, and so on.

All you need is an inexpensive embroidery machine, a good workspace and a few designs.  Pat Wolf started out by creating embroidered birthday shirts for her granddaughters.  The hobby she started in her television room has since turned into Groovy Granny Designs, the part time embroidery business she now runs from her home.

Wolf says that it was challenging to learn the new technology, but the business keeps her young at heart.  Read more about Wolf’s story in the Denton Record Chronicle or if you’d like to learn more about starting your own home embroidery business you should check out this complete how-to manual.

    I have tried to email you about my tutorials but they keep being bounced back. I did not offer them but if you would like to use them then that is ok if you could put links to my blog and state that they pincushion tutorial is linked to ready made versions and kits in my Etsy shop for those who might want a ‘project to go’, I would really appreciate that. Thanks. I will add your link in my monthly round-up.
    Best wishes
