    I don’t currently sell my garments, though I used to do consignment at a few local shops. If I were to sell now, I’d definitely use Etsy.com and probably make my own page over at Squidoo.com, as well.

    I’d love to sell my garments but I find I wind up making things for my daughters and nieces. I don’t make the time to design, sew, and build up an inventory to sell anywhere. I’m a knitter and crocheter and would love, love, love to have these books!

    No – making garments is a hobby and it would start to feel like work if I sold items. Plus, I only like to make things for myself!

    I tailored to those interested with my work with a very minimal paid. I love sewing so this is the only chance for me to sew a lot as I don’t think I need a new clothes every week.

    I just advertise my portfolio in my Facebook Fanpage (NeezaNeedles) and those interested with my work can contact me for further infos. I don’t have a proper online or reality shop.

    I don’t sell any of my projects because I haven’t yet acquired the skills to make things professionally. Although I love getting requests for different projects from friends and family (e.g. the red denim cowboy shirt for my boyfriend and currently working on chaircovers for my mom).

    I’ve done some custom sewing for friends and family, and do quite a bit of alterations and repairs… designer denim repair is apparently in high demand! I hope to start selling once I solidify exactly what that will be!

    No, I don’t sell my stuff. Although I’m sewing on requests by my friends or my family, but this is no real selling to me.
