My Etsy Story – nisseworks

1. I started in my craft when I was a kid. My mom sewed, my grandmother sewed, aunts, cousins, all sewed. It came to me quite naturally, actually. I didn’t really do any sewing beyond quick repairs to clothes for about 15 years until I had my daughter in 2009. I wanted to be able to make her clothes and toys, so I hauled out my mom’s old Singer 247 and started sewing again.

I heard about Etsy from a friend who mentioned he was going to open a shop to sell his beautiful jewelry…and then from another friend who set up a shop to sell baby clothes and toys. I joined Etsy in November 2009, but didn’t start stocking my shop until March 2010. Since then, I’ve developed my talents and have worked on making my products better and more attractive to potential customers.

2. A little bit of research will go a long ways. Keep up on your bookkeeping or you’ll spend too much time in December catching up. Don’t be afraid to try new things. Make good, strong connections with people in this business.

3. Educate yourself. The resources are there – use them.
