I have recently decided to take my sewing/crafting/quilting public and let others know about it and share my talents.  I thought it would be a good way to make some extra money in this time and place while I stay home with my kids to help out with the grocery bill (since gas keeps going up and that drives the price of groceries up too).  As much as I think that stay at home mom's should get a tax credit for that, I know it will never happen, so this is my way to contribute to my family and hopefully help out some.  We like to call it our rainy day money right now. 


I am interested in learning and finding out way to get this going and anyone can share tip and secrets they have in having success with this if they would like.  I am hoping to find a few craft shows in the area too. 


Feel free to look at my facebook page, I do not have a website at the moment, maybe that will come in the future.  I hope to hear from you or anyone about my page, suggestions are welcomed.

Bradlee -- Good luck with your good intentions. I have a friend who tried to sell her crocheted crafts at local venues, but it has not been very profitable. It can be very time consuming (both to make the items as well as the time involved in marketing & selling them) as well as the expense of supplies. 

I have taken up teaching instead of trying to sell the items that I make. This is very rewarding to me personally, and I think it is very beneficial to my students, but it does not generate a lot of income. Perhaps if you found students who wanted private lessons you would prefer that. Best wishes, Monica Schmidt
