Below is a letter from Kris. Hopefully some of you are in the same place as she is.
If you are starting a business, or have one going already, drop me a line and let me know about it.
I LOVE your blog/webpage!!!! I am doing the same thing you are, a former teacher with a home sewing business, only I am on the beginning end of it, after sewing for my family for 20+ years. Business is starting to pick up, and I am thinking that I can actually make a go of this. I read your blog and don't feel like I am the only one. Thank you so much!
Thanks for the kind words in your email. You sound like you are well on your way to having a successful business. You have the confidence you need and the rest will come. Most of alterations is trial and error, trying to put things back the way you found them.
I wish I had had a digital camera back when I started. I really rely on it to remind me of how things looked before I started opening up seams and ripping things apart. Keep that in mind when you get something challenging.
As always, write to me if you are stuck on something. I'm sure I can help! And some of my readers have great ideas too.
Good luck and stay in touch.
