Have you ever dreamed of becoming a cross stitch designer?
Don't just dream!
"Stitch Your Own Business" will help you to turn your dreams into reality. There is no time like the present! You can download this ebook directly onto your computer and get started right away!
The book concentrates specifically on helping you with the day-to-day tasks involved in getting a range of designs out there into the marketplace.
From finding out what people really want to stitch, to how to get honest feedback on your designs - not just a nod and a "That's nice dear" from your partner.
You will learn all about the different ways to promote your products, off and online. Where to advertise, and how often.
How to keep the rest of the family "onside" during your early days, before you start to see the money coming in. You will even find insider information on making the best of shows and exhibitions.
In order to give you the best chance of success I drafted in another cross stitch designer, Shan Harris, to give you her viewpoint, as some of her methods differ from my own, and this way you get to choose which would work best for you.
This 121 page ebook took me 2 years to write. It condenses 15 years of running my own needlework business into the bare essentials. It is not padded out with fluff, but packed with information that will give you a head start and help you to avoid the mistakes I made.
This information will save you time, effort and money! Becoming a cross stitch designer has never been so simple.
It is yours, along with two bonuses which I will discuss later, for just £19.95.
I have read your ebook from cover to cover three times and am most impressed. It is thorough, friendly and very, very informative.
A great deal of this I have found out by trial and error and you have gone much further down the line that I intend to go. The friends and contacts I have made have been invaluable and an unexpected bonus. I have also got to know a number of designers as friends which again is very special.
You have highlighted the benefits and also the pitfalls as well as giving sound basic advice from two different needlewomen with very different approaches. I will look more carefully at my paperwork as a result of your book and I will be better organised (probably not!! - ask my husband!) but thank you both for a very worthwhile project and I hope at some point our paths will cross.Liz - www.blackworkjourney.co.uk

Designing the kits is only part of the story.
How do you get them to the market place? How do you know what is popular? How do you keep your costs as low as possible?
Inside Chapter 4, I'll enlighten you with my experiences, illustrate tools that may assist your production, and offer guidance in case you are having others make your kits up for you.
Let's try adding some shoe leather to the sales pitches, and getting yourself out into the public. Shows and exhibitions offer an opportunity that shouldn't be missed.
You are now a cross stitch designer and you need to tell the world!
Giving a talk enables you to interact on a personal level with an audience. Talking to them about your love and passion helps to get your name out there.
Have a passion to teach, but missing that vital Degree? You don't necessarily need one! People are looking for informed individuals, experts in their field to pass on their knowledge.

Here you'll get an opportunity to learn from the best, and I'm not talking about me, for after a number of successful years with my own sites, I still find I can learn a trick or two.
It is important to keep your records in order when running your own business as a cross stitch designer. This chapter will help you lay a good foundation for your record keeping.
