I have heard it said that it’s good to make your hobby your job – to do what you love, to make money from it. Do you agree with that? Sometimes I do, and other times I wish I felt free to just design and sew for pleasure, for me or for gifts.
I have been working outside of my home for the past year, and it is harder to find time to sew enough to make real income. Often, I am just too tired to go into the sewing room! If you work outside your home — or if you have a high-maintenance household (children, for example) — how do you keep the joy in creative work and actually make time for it? Is it all about organization? Self-discipline?
Can creativity be accomplished on a schedule? Obviously, you can allot a certain time frame for the actual work, but can you be creative like that?
There are several ladies on etsy who make good money with their sewing. They are very talented, efficient people, and I hope their ability will rub off on me. Check out the Quiltsy listings!
