One of the things I wanted to do from the beginning with my new shop is set up an area for my sewing. I felt that if I was going to be at the shop 4 days a week I didn't want to just sit with nothing to do while I waited for customers. I also felt that it may generate business once people discovered I took custom sewing orders.
So I found an empty corner, set up and went to work. And I've been loving it! In the 3 days I've been open so far, I've been able to accomplish the following:
* Made two aprons for an order.
* Cut out 30 tea totes to start an order of 60.
* Hemmed curtains for a customer .
* Sewed 6 tissue holders.
* Sewed 20 tea totes
I'm loving the productivity and multi-tasking! I received another order for an apron and will be starting on that as well as making some placemats.
It makes the days go by quickly and I'm getting a lot more sewing done than I did at home.
