Crazy or What?
Launching a Business
in the Age of COVID

Written by Denise Martin  |  Posted on October 21 2020

My family thinks I'm crazy. My friends range from supportive to unusually quiet. Why would anyone want to start business during a pandemic?

Well, the short answer is, "Because I want to!" It may be years before there's a vaccine. And meanwhile there are all these ideas swirling around my brain. So I decided to cautiously proceed believing, now more than ever, that we all need to express ourselves. To be creative. To de-stress.

And that's where sewing and quilting come in. I don't know about you, but when I turn on my sewing machine and put on that quarter inch foot, I enter a different world. Hours can go by in a whirl of color and texture and shape. It's intoxicating.

Sharing such a heady trip is what Seamless is all about. And sharing my journey starting a business is what this blog is all about.

So let's get started. I've been at this for a few months, but I'll catch you up. We'll talk about sewing, quilting...and business.

Round I

  • Getting the idea for a new business
  • Sussing out the market for that idea
  • Building a business plan
  • Taking on the dreaded financials
  • Finding a location (or opting for online)
  • Making the "go/no-go" decision

And all the while cutting and sewing, cutting and sewing...and quilting.

Whew! That's enough for now. I'll meet you at the next post.
