Start a Sewing Patterns Business

What you will be doing.  Every creation starts with a pattern.  This is particularly true of sewing.  Do you realize how many things are sewn together?  There are clothing of course, toys, stuffed animals, wall hangings, and other crafts. 

As a sewing pattern retailer, you will provide customers with patterns for home décor items, stuffed toys, and apparel for kids, babies, and adults.  If you have a creative side and love to sew yourself, you can also market and sell patterns for your personal designs.

How to start.  Finding wholesalers of sewing patterns gives you a variety of product patterns to choose from.  If you acquire a business license, you can work with wholesalers to have patterns drop shipped to customers without carrying inventory.  This works well with an online business when selling prefabricated patterns. 

Decide what types of sewing patterns you will market.  You can specialize in children’s toy patterns, household items, doll clothing, or another area.  A bit of demographic research will help you figure out which patterns will sell the best for you.  

Starting costs The cost of this enterprise is relatively low.  Patterns can be purchased for a few hundred dollars.  Add in advertising costs and you could be looking at $500-$700 in the beginning.  Choosing to use your own designs will require a computer with appropriate software, a printer, and a telephone for customer service calls.   

If you don’t have a computer, you will need one if you plan on having an online component to the sewing business.  A website complete with storefront will open up your products to a wider market.  Since millions of people use the Internet, advertising here is advantageous. 

Skills needed.  You don’t need to know how to sew to sell patterns.  If you can put together a kit or pick fabric for a pattern, you can increase your sales through ensemble baskets that contain more than one pattern to complete a room décor.  This type of business savvy can keep profits climbing.   

Marketing.  Ads in children’s magazines, women’s magazines, homemaking magazines, and local newspapers should put you in contact with the types of people that sew.  If you live in a tourist area, these types of crafts sell well to vacationers looking for souvenirs to take home to kids and grandkids. 

Sewing patterns can be sold on eBay and your online web store.  Upload pictures of the finished products to show potential customers what their pattern can create.  Extending discounts for bulk orders helps with repeat business. 

Sewing is a fun pastime for kids and adults.  Sewing patterns can lead to many careers.  Either way, it is a skill that will be useful for a lifetime.
