Quarantines and lock downs are ending for now: Here’s how it will affect your sewing business going forward.

Quarantines and lock downs are ending for now: Here’s how it will affect your sewing business going forward.


Well I’ve written before about how to jump start the nation and your sewing business here during a pandemic.

And we can see from what is happening around the world


that a glimpse of hope is returning, but at the same time,


Itappears social distancing measures such as face mask etc. could be with us for a long time.


Maybe forever.


As you probably already know, this is not the first time people have influenza type pandemics around the world.


But this is the first time that these worldwide quarantines and lock downs have been dished out.


And many of you have had an opportunity to help those on the front lines by making face masks (see link below to article: DIY facemask tutorial)


and donating them to those on the front lines of this epidemic.


Many states in the u.s.a. and many nations are relaxing lock downs and quarantines are ending, albeit slowly.


Good news is trickling out that things are getting better.


However here’s a glimpse of what things may look like going forward.


One country’s leader said:

Even the president of the u.s.a is making remarks to that nature, that social distancing is not a bad idea, although he may not make it mandatory.


In some areas of the u.s. people are fed up with the lock downs and are taking to the beaches…

No matter what side of this you sit on,


it appears that making face masks is a given for your sewing business going forward.


We're already seeing face masks of different designs and colors etc. appearing as a staple in many parts of the world.


If you’re just starting your sewing business, you may wish to give them away to drive traffic.


In addition, you can sell custom face masks.

One easy way to make custom face masks is to use an Iron on design on the mask.

Of course you can do this with T shirts, ball caps, and anything else.


Making your product a custom product is a very good idea for your sewing business.


And it’s especially good for giving gifts and free samples.


And when you can easily add an iron on design for just a few cents per mask,


it is easy to see that it can be very good for your sewing business.


Standing out from the crowd and having a unique product is always a good idea, in your sewing business and any business.


Giving gifts could take on a whole new dimension such as with birth days for your grand children, family members and friends.


How much more appreciated will your gift be when it is custom to their likes.

And if you need a sewing machine instruction manual you can get it here.


And if you liked this article, please bookmark it and tell your friends this is a perfectly good place to get your sewing machine instruction manual,


and now also your digital iron on designs for your sewing projects.


As we’re rolling this out, and you’re here while it’s happening, you have an opportunity


to give us feedback on the type of designs you would like to see and any other input.
