Important Tools for a Hobbyist-Sewer-Turned-Professional

sewing machine table and sewing machine tablesDo you like to sew or quilt? Are you looking for ways to parlay your favorite hobby into a source of revenue? There are many sites online that let you sell your handmade goods to other people for money or you can sell your items at local craft fairs. But in order to take full advantage of any of these options, you'll need the right tools. Here are some suggestions for items that you may have previously overlooked:

Canister Vacuum: When you cut up bits of fabric, felt and other items, you get things like leftover strings and lint. If you only sew now and then, this isn't much of an issue. However, if you're working on many items every day, to sell to other people, you don't want to have any of your pieces contaminated with fluff from other projects. If all you have right now is an upright vacuum, you risk the longer bits of thread getting caught in the rotating brush and potentially causing the motor to burn out. Choosing a canister vacuum without a rotating brush, or with a brush that is powered entirely by suction, will allow you to clean up your work area without worrying about possible damage.

Sewing Machine Table: A sewing machine table isn't always the same thing as a sewing table. A sewing table is usually where you cut out and piece together your projects, before moving to the sewing machine. A sewing machine table is a piece that attaches to the base of your sewing machine, giving you a larger work area. Instead of most of a big project hanging down, and possibly touching the floor, a sewing machine table allows you to keep all your fabric in one place, neatly piled and not pulling while you work. While many sewing machine cabinets offer the same feature, a sewing machine table can be a more cost-effective solution if you're only just now starting to sell your items.

Tagging Gun: Once your project has been completed, you may want to attach a price or other informational tag. If you use staples, you could wind up damaging your product or your customers might damage it when removing the staple. Instead of giving your customers a reason to return a damaged product, use a tagging gun. This is the same type of thing that retail stores use to price their merchandise, which can help to give your products a more professional appearance.

You don't have to spend a fortune on getting ready to sell your items to other people. However, a small investment now can make your production more smoothly and efficiently. The faster and easier it is for you to make the products that you sell, the more money you'll obviously be able to make. TheSewingOutlet.com
