I am thinking about trying to build a home based home decor business by doing custom window treatments and pillows. I have been sewing for over 20 years and have dabbled in doing something 10 years or so ago but decided it wasn’t the time. I’m now not working and have the opportunity to try something new. I’ve signed up for several classes in custom window treatments at my local fabric store ove rthe next couple of months and hope to start advertising my services sometime in September.
Here’s my question: where can I go to get help on setting pricing, what services I should offer, fabric discounts for bulk purchases and anything else I should know before I jump in with both feet? Is there a book or a forum or a web site I should visit or know about? Does anybody whose done this have any advise for me?
Any and all help, feedback and advice is greatly appreciated !
