How I Became a Stitched Calligrapher

My story is much the same as most entrepreneurs and makers in that I didn’t start my journey with this place in mind. I never thought I’d be known for my stitched calligraphy! In fact, even though I know a lot about sewing and have years and years of experience, I didn’t know the first thing about free-motion stitching until 5 years ago. That’s the honest truth!!

Things to Consider When Hiring Help for Your Small Business

Things to Consider When Hiring Help for Your Small Business | MamaBleu.com

I experienced a tremendous growth spurt in my business in 2013 and couldn’t see keeping up with my orders without hiring someone to help me. This was something I had never done before so I learned a lot as I went through that season.

When the year ended and things slowed down, I no longer needed extra help for a while but the experience was eye opening for me. There are parts of that process that I did well and there are other parts that I could have done better if I had known more going into it. I'm sure it would have at least helped my stress level through it all!

Today I'm sharing everything I learned.
