Teaching ages 5-adult the art of making handcrafted dolls through sewing a life skill. Dollmaking, a healing art, allows a creative mind to bring to fruition an heirloom or memory lasting a lifetime.
What one unique aspect of your business will make you succeed over the next year?
We are teaching all ages how to utilize their creativity through sewing cloth. Sewing is a life skill that can be used to create so many projects. Students come to class, the excitement of selecting fabrics, threads, buttons, hair, designing their own project continues to draw and challenge the mind. You will find excitement, boldness, imagination and healing through this process. You will find something you love.
How does your business make a positive impact on the community?
Bringing the community together collectively. Parents and children, women's groups, Girl and Boy Scouts, corporate entities, church groups, after-school programs, sewing camp and competitions. All will be cumulative in a show and tell exhibition of "Look what we have created!"
What would you do with a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card, training, and help from a SCORE mentor to grow your business?
First I would pay for my Sam's Club membership so I could continuously enjoy saving money. I would upgrade my marketing products starting with an updated computer and look into setting up an inventory system with some of their business programs. That would aid in marketing the business. I would treasure training and help from a Score mentor. Through education and staying with current trends will keep your business on a steady pace to grow.
