Hi - It's late here and I'm just getting ready for bed. Joined yesterday and am looking forward to getting to know the "crowd". Have sewen for many years and after taking a bit of a break for the last two years, rediscovered it recently (I find the internet is the major interference to sewing) :pc: Am looking to hear from other Canadians who possibly supplement their incomes with sewing from home! :Canada:

Hi (I find the internet is the major interference to sewing)

Ha - you are indeed Welcome here and will be right at home!! Can't help you with the income but maybe some questions, though not as good as articulate, Pam. I have been sewing forever and seem to be getting slower, not faster - that computer again.

Hi Threadbare, and welcome. I'm not Canadian, and I certainly can't earn a cent with my sewing, but I remain ever the optimist:dave:

Hi Threadbare, another :Canada: ian here from the Ottawa region. I'm a quilter but only doing it in my spare time as I still am part of the workforce...but only for a few more years! :up: I'm sure there are others who will be able to give you some info on how they sew to supplement income. Welcome!

Hello from good old Southern Ontario. I retired over 5 years ago. I do craft shows. Did one last Sat and have another one this Sat. Do 2 in Aug and more in Sept, Oct and NOv. Don't do too bad. Only do crafts I enjoy. Soon as a craft starts to bore me I quit it and on to another. Made business cards in the computer and put them out. Invited to 2 Home and Garden Shows in May because of the business cards. Can't go because have something every weekend with family and weddings in May but they kept my name for next year. Good luck. jessie s
