Sewing as a home business can be one of the easiest and most rewarding businesses there is to establish and operate. Since everyone wears clothes, there will be a limitless built-in source of income in any community, whether it be rural or metropolitan. There is also and will continue to be an expanding need for sewing-related services such as home dec, crafts, accessories, quilting, and many, many more.

Operating a home sewing business is perfect for people who want to stay home with their children or who are burnt out and in need of a career change. Many are planning a sewing related business as a supplement to retirement or as a new career after retirement. Others with physical limitations such as a handicap, a medical or dietary restriction, or being a day or night person find it ideal. Students can use it as a means of support while going to school.

A home sewing business can open an avenue of independence and creativity which is not possible in many other professions. You will have the flexibility and opportunity to develop your particular talents. You can specialize by choosing the work you want to do.

For some it could be a source of income in addition to a regular nine-to-five job.

A very big advantage to starting this type of business is that you will have to make virtually no investment. You can begin with the equipment you already have. Usually a sewing machine and an iron will be sufficient. As far as space goes, all that is needed at first is a small room or a corner of a room. Since your office in your home, you will not have to spend extra money on rent or mortgage.

Probably the biggest advantage of having your own business is that you will be your own boss. You will be able to create a pleasant working environment for yourself without interference. You will make your own schedule, come and to as you please, and have the freedom to steer the business in whatever direction you choose.

Probably the biggest disadvantage is that it can be difficult to stop working or to leave your work behind at the end of the day. Having a separate room or a work area that can be completely closed off will help immensely.

A home sewing business is not for people who dislike being alone or who have trouble being self-motivated. You can however combat isolation and inactivity by taking classes and workshops, becoming involved in professional and social groups or clubs, and by subscribing to magazines and newspapers which pertain to your work.
