Start a Sewing Supplies Business

What you will be doing.  Selling sewing supplies is a business opportunity that requires not a lot of know how or money to get started.  As a supplier, you will provide professional seamstresses, dressmakers, quilters, and other sewing craftspeople with what they need to complete their creations. 

How to start.  Start with a name.  Decide what to call your business.  A logo helps customers recognize your business.  People that see that cute little alligator know that the he represents the brand name Izod.  Registering that name allows you to add it to business cards, brochures, and other items that you sell. 

Find a reputable supplier for your products.  A business license is needed to buy from a wholesaler.  A wholesaler can give you better prices on bulk orders.  Choose one that will drop ship to your customers if needed. 

Starting costs.  If you plan to sell locally, equipment for the rented booth will be supplied by you.  This can be as simple as a table, chairs, signs, and a cash box.  You will also be responsible for transporting the equipment to and from the shows. 

Online selling from a personal website will increase visibility across the country and beyond.  There will be a fee for setting up a website and managing it.  With a virtual storefront, there is also the need for credit card acceptance and PayPal. 

Starting costs can run from $500 to $2,000 at the beginning depending on your clientele.  If you are supplying materials to a local theater company or a dressmaker, you may need to carry a variety of items such as buttons, lace, and other notions. 

Skills needed.  A nose for good business will serve you well.  There is no need to be a sewing aficionado yourself to sell the products, but it would help to be familiar with the products customers are requesting.  Organization is important when dealing with such small and varied items.  Keeping accurate count of what you have access to can make the difference between an on time order and a delayed one. 

Marketing.  Ads in the local classifieds and the Yellow Pages or other directory bring attention to your new enterprise.  Through word of mouth from family and friends let others know if you are attending trade shows or flea markets in the area.  Online advertising through affiliate programs with other websites brings attention to your site every time someone visits theirs. 

To increase sales, sell prepackaged sewing baskets with various items already inside.  Customers will pay higher prices for the convenience of having everything they need in one package. 

Sewing supplies are needed by more people than you think.  Check out your demographic area and see where your customer base lies.
