Library Journal - Library JournalSykes has created a guide that enables the home sewer to combine management skills and creative talents into a home-based sewing business. The assumption here is that one already is proficient at sewing. The author offers a broad range of suggestions, tips, and guidelines, ranging from evaluating personal assets and skills and setting up a sewing office to developing and managing a business plan and overcoming emotional roadblocks. Chapters detail client interaction, time management, record keeping, and advertising. Sewers will find invaluable the specialized sample forms, including consultation/work and consignment agreements, pattern adjustment checklists, project worksheets, and price lists based on time and motion studies. -- Judith Yankielun Lind, Roseland Free Public Library, New Jersey

Business of Sewing based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I purchased this book and just found it to be the most valuable tool in my library. I had read other books, but this book covered everything from pricing, marketing, business plans and how to save money. Plus it even offered great inspiration for when things go wrong. I can't wait to read other books by Barbara Wright Sykes. I recommend this book highly to anyone who wants to start or already have a sewing business.
