I am having second thought about my sewing business.
1.) I'm wondering if it's worth it anymore. It's becoming work. I mean, there are some days I hate the thought of sitting in front of the sewing machine.
Don't get me wrong, I love sewing and I love the look on peoples faces when they receive something handmade...but my house is a mess and I feel guilty for not spending every second with my kids.
I'm hoping this gets easier once pre-school starts in the fall.
2.) I think my constant sewing is putting my health at risk. My thumbs have been going numb lately. I have carpel tunnel issues (thanks to my years of being a paralegal) and my little fingers and sometimes my ring fingers go numb at times, but now with my thumbs....I don't know.
3.) I am beginning to wonder if there is still a market for what I do. Why spend $15-$20 for something custom made when I can get something close that was mass produced for half the price?
4.) I'm not really sure how to get market myself. I have business cards and there is a magnet on the back of our truck and I ordered a canvas bag that I'll use as a diaper bag. But I really don't know if there is anything else I can do.
Like I said, I'm having second thoughts. But maybe that's a good thing? Maybe that's what will help me succeed?
I don't know.
Happy sewing everyone!
