10 Signs You Should Turn Your Embroidery Hobby into a Business

Have you been thinking about starting your own business from home, but aren’t sure if it’s right for you? Here are 10 signs it’s time to turn your embroidery hobby into an embroidery business!

10 Signs You Should Turn Your Embroidery Hobby into a Business
  1. You love your embroidery hobby.

    Starting a home business is a lot of hard work, so it’s important to do what you love! If embroidery is something you’ve always loved to do, why not turn it into a source of income

  2. You have LOTS of ideas.

    You’d embellish every piece of fabric in your house with embroidery if you could, but sadly that’s just not practical. Why not put those ideas to an even better use?

  3. You’re constantly getting requests from friends and family.

    Is everyone always talking about your embroidery work? Do your friends and family love to request new projects from you? Even if you don’t want to charge them, it’s a good indication someone out there will be willing to pay you for your work!

  4. Your house is overrun with throw pillows.

    If piles of embroidered throw pillows cover your couch, your bed, and pretty much every seating surface in the house, it might be a sign that you should start putting them up for sale.

  5. You’re looking for a way to earn money from home.

    It seems like everyone is joining the side hustle these days, and with good reason. Turning your embroidery hobby into a business is the perfect way to supplement your monthly income or save up for something special.

  6. You want a job you can enjoy every day.

    Have you ever heard the saying, “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”? It’s true!

  7. You just invested in an embroidery machine.

    That specialized embroidery machine with the design software was just too tempting to pass up. Justify the expense to yourself (and your tax returns) by making it part of your business model!

  8. You want an excuse to embroider ALL the time!

    If you can’t pull yourself away from your favorite hobby, turn “just a few more stitches!” into “I’ll stop later, right now I’m working!”

  9. You’ve been thinking about starting an embroidery business.

    Starting a home business isn’t something to be taken lightly, but if building an embroidery business has been on your mind for a while, that could be a sign it’s right for you!

  10. You can’t wait to finish reading this blog so you can get started!
