Embroidery for Craft Shows

If you want to use your embroidery passion to make a little money, you might try selling embroidered items at craft shows. Be sure that any design you use can be embroidered on items for sale. Usually only items embroidered with licensed designs are restricted from sale.

Before you start embroidering a bunch of stuff, visit some area craft shows to see what items are selling. Embroidery designs that relate to the area are likely to sell well. I live near the Chesapeake Bay, where blue crabs are a sure hit. Holiday items are popular. With St. Patrick's Day and Easter coming soon, those items should sell well.

Embroider one-size-fits-all items such as tote bags, baby bibs, burp cloths, dish towels, golf towels and in-the-hoop items that hold cell phones, notepads, IDs, etc.. Hats may also sell well, but you invest more in the blank hat and they can be tricky to embroider, so you might try just a few to see if they are worth the investment in time and money.
