    I’ve started with the domain name and site, but need to actually design the site and then figure out how much to charge, how to entice people through pictures, etc. etc. etc.
    Would love to win this and proceed efficiently and wisely!

  11. Kate says:

    Sometimes yes, other times I just want to give things away. So guess I’ll give to friends and family, and if the opportunity comes, I’ll start my own business. I’m still sort of a “newbie” to machine embroidery, have hand embroidered for years.

  12. Annelise Crown says:

    I would love to take my embroidery and crafting farther than the occasional sale to friends. Everyone is always telling me I should but I just don’t have the know how to get started. Plus, i’m just a little scared.

    Just as a minor hobbie–sell enough to keep me sewing

  17. Marilyn M says:

    I would like to know how to charge correctly when a friend gives you something to do that is more costly and time consuming that they imagine. After all “you have that great machine, could you do _____for me?”. And then also maybe start doing some small projects to sell and see how it goes. I am disable and a small business you be great! Thanks!

  18. Teona says:

    I had a business sewing and embroidery that I tried to get off the ground but had an illness in the family that made me have to put it on the back burner. I made lots of mistakes and would like to start over. I have two embroidery machines and feel like I could really start a business if I knew how to market it better.

  24. Lois Ann Bonhaus says:

    I would love to have a business, but in a small town, it is really hard. It’s hard to find someone to share ideas with. Most people like what you do and want it, they just don’t have any idea of the expenses involved.

    Always looking for creative and helpful information on starting a embroidery business.

    I am trying so hard to have a business from home that I enjoy doing and work to increase my skills. I work until 2 to 4 in the morning on every day that ends with a ‘Y’. I work during the day doing alterations and work my evenings making samples, photographing them, and posting them on a certain site. After I have fine honed my crafts, I will finish working on my own website that I started earlier this year. I venture alone on this journey and would love to have expert advice.

  29. Karen says:

  32. Deb Palmer says:

    The revenue from my embroidery business consists of smiles, hugs, and love! I enjoy giving away everything I make.

    I have considered starting an embroidery business, but am concerned that it would take the fun out of finding great new designs and projects.
