professional sewing

azav | Posted in General Discussion on

Hi!  I am new here.  I am fairly new to sewing also.  My family and I are seriously looking into starting a homebased/ web site business.  My mil has been a seamstress for years and years.  We are developing a line of children’s sleepwear as well as other items.  Does anyone here sew professionally?  Do you have any words of wisdom?

    Check out the Professional Association of Custom Clothiers (PACC) to see if there's a chapter near you.   http://www.paccprofessionals.org

    You might like to check the Apparel Industry Board near you.

    The one in Chicago, Illinois (350 North Orleans Street, Suite 1186,

    Chicago, IL 60654 phone 312-923-9076) has excellent seminars and fabric and trim shows for wholesale only.

    This month the Chicago Board is featuring the Business of Fashion.

    One seminar is on "What is this thing Called a Business Plan?"

    and"Taxes, Insurance, Credit:The Business of Fashion".

    There are nine seminars in all. I wish that I lived closer to Chicago so that I could take them all, but it is a four hour drive

    for me. I can only catch a few of them.

    Welcome to the Gatherings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
