Sewing for Fundraising

Many sewists want to use their talents to sew specifically for a fundraising effort. It’s important to focus your efforts in the same way as if you were sewing for profit. Whether you are sewing for a local church festival or a cancer society, feeling passionate about what you are sewing is still important. Think about choosing appropriate fabrics and items that might relate to what you are trying to accomplish. Often, online sellers choose to donate a percentage of their sales to online charities. This is a great way to contribute to your community. It can also help to give you a special direction and focus, and it lets your customers know what you really care about.

Zipper Foot

If you are going to install a zipper, this foot is a must. It makes sewing zippers a breeze because you can get close to those teeth without losing sight of your needle or breaking it.

Standard Presser Foot

This is the foot that I use for basic sewing. I can use it for both straight and zigzag stitching. This foot is standard and you can get almost all of your sewing done with this foot alone.

1/4″ Or Patchwork Foot

This foot gives you a perfect 1/4˝ seam allowance. It also provides good control for topstitching and patchwork piecing.

Walking Foot

This foot is a staple for many sewists because it assists in sewing together layers, which can often slip and move under a regular presser foot.

Taking Good Photos

The first step to selling your work online is taking good photos. Although this can be done in many different ways, I am going to share the way I photograph most items for my Etsy shop. A DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera is helpful and will give you beautiful photos, but a nice point and shoot or even an good iPhone camera can take a nice photo of your sewn items if you are not ready to invest in a DSLR camera and lens.
