    No I don’t sell any of the items I make. I either use them myself or give the items to family and friends.

    Nope don’t sell them, but have been asked too. I don’t feel like I’m good enough yet to start spreading my stuff around.

    I do not sell anywhere, but I love learning and creating for myself. If that ever changes I would probably look at etsy.

    I do not sell my garments. I give them away when my kids or I am done with them. I do save my heirloom children’s clothing, though. Maybe I will have some grandchildren in the future!

    I often get asked if I want to sell something, but, I rarely do. It’s my hobby, I don’t want it to be work.

    No I don’t sell – I’m not up to that standard yet. But I do make bags etc and give them away as gifts.

    Nope. Although I’ve done a couple of things on commission, I don’t have the time to have a “line” or surplus of things to sell. Generally things are one of a kind and for myself or people I know!

    I have just started making clothes that i feel are high enough quality to even dream about selling. Though i have no immediate plans to do so my dream is to eventually have a clothing line!

  • Praline1_large

    Dec 18, 2010, 11.52 PMby dol

    I would love to. I’ve had the experience of a few garments in consignment and presenting some stuff on a costume market with a partner seamstress, but no sales yet, and apart from that I would love to sell items on the net and in boutiques selling handmade items.
