A practical and valuable guide for those who wish to make a living from their sewing, this new book from sewist and pattern designer Lindsay includes all you need to know to start sewing for profit. The book covers everything from finding your personal sewing style to creating a product line, identifying customers, equipping your studio, pricing, selling, and marketing your work, designing your own patterns, and managing the business and legal side of sewing. Also included are 16 projects―aprons, totes, messenger bags, tablet covers, baby quilts―that you can begin sewing and selling right away. (Quilts Inc., February 2015)

Much of the book’s content is a series of 16 tried-and-true starter projects that wannabe craft-based business owners can adapt or use―an alluring idea, since Lindsay sells her version of several of the projects in her own online store. Interviews with successful craft-based business owners provide additional perspective on what it takes to be victorious in this increasingly crowded field. (Library Journal, January 2015)
This is a must-read book for any sewist who is toying with the idea of taking their home sewing to the next level. Not only does this book provide you with 16 starter projects – it covers the basics from finding your sewing style, identifying your customers, essential equipment, buying and using your fabric to sewing and selling. There are also interviews throughout the chapters from talented sewists who have taken the leap and created their own craft business. What I really enjoyed about this book was each pattern included a cutting guide for a single item and then a cutting guide for multiples – an excellent time saver for stock building. Each project also included a sample price guide – perfect for any first time seller who is unsure of what to price their precious sewn items. (Make Modern Magazine, 11/3/14)
The author’s expertise in running Gingercake Patterns, an online pattern business, is put to good use in a book that’s half-helpful suggestions for those who want to start a home-based sewing business and half a selection of 16 sewing patterns that can be used to make projects to sell. The first section contains valuable information on everything from identifying potential customers to taking good photos for online sales and setting prices for craft shows. Lindsay doesn’t offer much advice about the less glamorous and more practical aspects of setting up shop, such as incorporating a business or figuring out a profit margin, but there’s enough to be worthwhile. The projects are cute, too, including a simple boxy pincushion and an appealing, reversible grocery tote, all clearly explained with step-by-step diagrams. None of the patterns are revolutionary, but – this is key – Lindsay grants permission for all 16 projects to be sewn and sold, an important consideration for those starting a sewing business, and quite possibly making the book worth the price just for those. Full-color photos, pattern pullouts. (Publishers Weekly, 10/20/14)
