If You’re a Fabric Fanatic, You Can Develop a Home Business

by Mary Emma Allen on September 6th, 2007

         A love of fabric often leads to a home business.  For Laurie Maier, her enjoyment of vintage fabrics resulted in Blue Indigo, her tote bag (cloth handbag) business.  This isn’t a full time business for Laurie, but is an interesting one that takes her to upscale craft fairs during the fall months.  She also makes these bags on commission.  After purchasing a tote bag several years ago, and discovering it wasn’t well made, Laurie decided to create one herself.   She began making them for family and friends.  Before long, her business, Blue Indigo, was launched.  (Don’t you love the name?) This story, Fabrics Are Her Bag, by Carole LaMond, in the Lincoln (MA) Journal, provides very interesting insight into Laurie’s business and where a love of fabric can take you. Use your ingenuity and creativity, and you may find yourself evolving into a home business, too.  Also, keep in mind, if you’re just starting out, or considering turning an interest into a home business, that you may want to enter the Jump Start Your Business contest here at the b5media Business Channel.
