In Love with Needlework

by Anonymous
(Chicago, IL, USA)

I love to knit and crochet sweaters, scarves, and afghans. I learn to do both as a child, and just fell in love with it.

I hope to expand my repetoire. I want to advance into more clothes--dresses and tops that have intricate designs.

I'm also wanting to expand in business. I have already started a small small small home business with my crafts. Not enough to live on yet, but something on the side while I work full-time.

A challenge that I'm facing is that I'm not very good at selling. I get a lot of compliments for my work, but I need to get better at marketing & promoting myself.

I am an artist and I commend you for taking the first step to invest in your small home business. I'm sure that that took a lot of courage.

I can identify with you saying that you are not great at marketing and selling your creations. I struggle in the same way. One way to market your products is to be your own greatest advertisement. Wear your scarves,and other products. The more exposure that you receive, the greater chance you have to create interest and sell your goods. I wish you the best!
