Can anyone offer some suggestions?

Marcy | Posted in General Discussion on

I am an avid reader of most any sewing magazines that I can get ahold of and have been sewing for a great many years. I have decided in the last year to try and make a go of an online sewing business of my love. I decided that since I love to do Bridal and children’s clothes that I’s go into the Christening and special occasion items for children. I’m finding it very hard to find ways of linking into “good” traffic. Does anyone have any good suggestions to help in this? I do thank you if you do! Marcy

     Have you considered Martha Pullen's Sew Beautiful?  It focusses on heirloom sewing for children.

    If you mean how to get your information to potential customers, you might want to check the church groups in your area.  Most dressy occasions for children involve church events, so their auxiliary groups might be a good source of recommendations.  Another point of interest would be mother/baby shops, which usually don't carry the formal wear but attract the customers who might be looking for it.  Finally, most babies I've known were provided their christening gowns by their grandmothers, so targeting that audience might be effective, too.  Have fun and good luck!

        I would also go to bridal hire shops and bridal sales shops . Also here in Australia there are several magazines which are free to the public and are aimed at niech markets such as the senoirs market and the parenting market and they are funded via advertising so they might be worth a look too. They surely must exist in the US too.

    Marcy, do you have a website?

    I have an on-line quilt shop and sell notions, etc. Maybe we can do a link exchange to bring each other business.
