How I Started my $100,000 Etsy Embroidery Business From Home
good morning guys welcome back to my channel  it be new here make sure you subscribe so this video is gonna be a little different than  most of my videos I've gotten so many questions   about you know let's see how I

started

it how  did I get into

embroidery

and such so I thought   it'd just be easier to make a whole video versus  answering each question individually so before I I   was in college when all of this

started

everything 

started

I was in college that was my
how i started my 100 000 etsy embroidery business from home
senior year   um and I ended up pregnant with meekest Riley if  you guys don't know and um I was working at Target   full time 40 hours a week sometimes 50 and I was  doing security and obviously being pregnant and   doing security I didn't want to ask anything my  husband ed whenever asked anything he's just like   you didn't you got just just staying

home

just  stay

home

so I'm staying

home

and still go to   school obviously but you know not making any
money  and me myself I didn't like that I was trying to I   was reselling on Amazon on Amazon on eBay so bring  in extra money for myself so I did end up hearing   about the flea market I went to the flea market  and that's where everything

started

I've been a   beautiful lady miss Barbara and she hinted to me  that you know somebody who was right in this area   did tutus and birthday items and she made a lot  of money and I thought about it I was like oh cool   but as
they went by a lot of people were coming  to find this lady when issue an issue where is   she and I was like oh maybe I'll try making tutus  you know so I went online and found a video of how   to make a tutu so I found one to jo-ann's found  the supplies that I needed and went ahead and   tried and I said wow this was easy easy so made  about five tutus and I took them with me the next   day to the flea market and they all sold like I  was like what okay so I guess this
does work so   like me was

started

asking me also do you make  the shirts with the names and I'm like no and a   lot of the others things I was hearing was that  you know she was charging so much money but she   was not doing um she wasn't doing

embroidery

she  was doing the heat press items so people were   saying stuff fades but they were paying $200 for  these outfits so I'm like listen I don't need to   even charge you 200 liter ball in my opinion so  I tried
to find something else so I went online   and it's research in which I pick out something  that wouldn't fade and that's what I found the  

embroidery

and I had no clue but

embroidery

  absolutely nothing so I found Pamela's video   sterling Styles when she was making the Alwyn  see that was the first first video I ever watched   with Pamela and since then I watch it every single  day every single day so it was about almost three   years ago when I first

started

watching Pamela I 

started

watching her videos and into her videos   you know she just she described a lot and you  could see machines she had and then she had it   in the description with stabilizer she just went  to do a lot of detail so everything that she had   you pretty much can find on Amazon um so I went to  Amazon I got the machine the PE 770 now they don't   Southern at Amazon they sell of a p/e 800 which  is obviously gonna be a newer machine because it   has been
how i started my 100 000 etsy embroidery business from home
three years so I would get that is I'm  currently looking at it at this moment is 570 if   you can't find the P 770 you can try to find it  but this is the five Sundays only what I see on   Amazon at the moment so because it's what she was  using in almost every I could say at least 80% of   every embroiderer who starts out they start out  with this machine and I would start out with this   machine as well if you are new and would like  to get into

embroidery

so I
watched her videos   and I decided to you know make little sayings  on Wednesday so I was strictly doing Wendy's at   first I was doing little sayings and they would  sell too but I'm like oh wow this works this is   working so I'm making tutus completely different  I went there to sell my bath and Bodyworks in the   trade secret not children's clothing and you  know I was like well again this makes money so   why not I cut spending my time there every  single
weekend for about a year um people  

started

asking for bigger shirts and all stuff  and I'm like I don't do it dull and this little   machine it's not gonna work on don't cuz it is  a 5x7 meaning that's the area of 5 inches by 7   inches that you can sew embroider excuse me so  she was like ask for bigger and bigger shirts I   don't like well I need to find something bigger  so I looked online and I went to find another   machine like the brother P 770 that
was just  had a bigger

embroidery

size so I think it was   like I don't remember it was bigger so I found a  dealer and they had it and it was like $5,000 and   I'm like yeah and no don't thank you I know but  my husband had seen this machine next to it I'm   like there's no way I don't know how to use that  looks so scary oh my gosh so at the other day we   decided to get this machine but we did not get it  from that dealer we just looked at it I looked
it   up online and everything so they don't take him  back to the flea market and legitimately be my   husband he works five days a week he was coming up  the market every single Saturday Sunday Saturday   Sunday he so much he worked seven days a week  in the please market you had to be there 6:00   a.m. and you could not leave until 5:30 so you  were there the whole time otherwise they'd find   you and everything not fine to find you for not  being open on time so we
would love that machine   and these machines are about 100 pounds we love  the machine they're all the supplies all stuff   to make tutus I've made teachers on the spot I  make stuff on the spot you know cuz that's where   the money is you know so I was like I need you no  need to make money I'm not working I'm working on   the weekends I still was going to school full-time  we have a newborn baby she needs formula diapers   and everything so I was kind of out
how i started my 100 000 etsy embroidery business from home
of necessity  more so than than a like it but you know when you   start seeing people's reaction some things you  make it was like oh I like doing this you know   people are enjoying the product that I'm giving  them and they find equality so I really like that   aspect of it so that the thing I'm doing that for  about a year until I felt comfortable to leave the   koomer and just do everything straight online  I was running both at the same time I

started

   at sea but
I was still in school I was in college  so I have a school full time working flea market   every weekend so I legitimately didn't burn  seven days a week I had I was just so so so   busy and my husband who already worked five days  a week also had to come to play my trophy on the   weekend because obviously it's not the safest you  know so I did that and once I became comfortable   with trying to do just at sea and I won my time  back because at this point my husband's
mother   had my daughter five days she runs a daycare so  she had Friday's week but then she also had on   the weekends so she had her seven days seven days  long and you know people burn out you know you get   tired so I was like I'm sick of this I graduated  college so I was like okay schools done school's   out the way so that's a huge huge load off so I  have a lot more time so I left the flea market   and just put everything online on

Etsy

so he was a  little
tricky in the beginning I didn't have a lot   of orders on

Etsy

to begin with the brother p800  um it was very beginner friendly and like I said   Pamela was using it and it was easy to watch her  videos and you know follow along and you know it   just made it a lot easier so thanks to Pamela and  I legitimately told my husband is all the time if   it was not for Pamela's videos I would have and  figured I hadn't brought her she did a great job   explaining it in her
video I learned everything  from Pamela that's legitimately the truth her   YouTube is sterling Styles a lot of you already  watch her so hey you would already know so that's   why I learned how to embroider and then from there  you know I just built my knowledge based on trial   and error trial and error the orders I didn't end  up getting this machine right here as the first   machine because the P 770 he do have to hold and  babysit it and monitor it this one you
didn't you   can let it just the shirts go as long as they  were big enough except like onesies you should   watch them but that's what I did and then a few  months later I got guess you can't see it but I   got won't get this one this one it's a six needle  machine and then I think three months after I got   this one I got another six needle machine and  that is how much my orders did increase iodine   an invitation from Amazon this and they invited  me to
join their Amazon handmade section so I   did accept that and there is what how I got the  second one why I got it cuz I was getting a lot   of orders and such I will be doing another video  on pretty much how many sales I got when I first  

started

on

Etsy

any tips I have um I find them  do it right now because I'm dressed Riley is   sleeping right now so I decided do it early it's  only seven o'clock and I keep saying I'm gonna   do this video and I keep getting
