welcome to

I took a Brother home sewing machine and a $30 craigslist desk and built a six figure sewing business that supports a life I love… while generating hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue each year.

I’m sharing every tool, trick, and business process I’ve learned from costuming celebrities, manufacturing clothing, and selling products... aka, what I WISH I knew when I first started out building a craft-based business.

Just a few years before sewing the first American flag, Betsy Ross ran away across the river to get married in a bar against the wishes of her entire family. She sat near George Washington in church and built a friendship with him that lead to her legacy-filled role as the first seamstress of the American flag.

After sewing the flag, she went on to operate a successful business for decades. I wonder what advice she'd have for us sewing business owners today? Would it be the importance of choosing a good church pew?

I'm no Betsy, but I know what I wish I did. In this episode, I highlight five things I wish I had done when I first went into business, as well as some important things to note in doing business in a craft-based industry.

If you’re an Astronaut, the process of getting dressed for work is labor intensive. You might have known the spacesuits Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins, and Neil Armstrong were expensive… but I bet you didn’t know the seamstresses who made them came from Playtex. 

The success of those suits were a matter of life and death. I’d imagine the phrase ‘good enough’ was not one that was said that day about their uniform. 

What if I told you, that the spacesuits these astronauts wore only passed half of their field tests? 

How do you know if your handmade work is good enough to sell? In this episode, we go behind the scenes at NASA and pull the thread on imposter syndrome, taking imperfect action, and learning how to let the market decide what's good enough to sell. I teach you how to let the market decide, and why.
