Home Business Idea
Home Sewing
By Isabel M. Isidro

Consumer interest in sewing and crafting continues to expand, as the home sewing industry grows to $3.5 billion in 2000. According to the Home Sewing Association, the continuous demand for home sewing is fueled by the current interest in home-based activities, the technical appeal of sewing machines with computerized functions, and the growth in the number of sewing-related sites on the Internet.

If you have the ability to sew, you can offer such services as alterations, canvas repair, antique quilt restoration as well as sewing your original creations such as custom bedding, Christmas ornaments, custom slip and chair covers, hats, Christening gowns, prom dresses, chef and barbecue outfits, swim suits, ladies suits, soft toys and sculpture, and many more!
