Stay at home mom designer, creator and operator of EMJ Design

When my second child was born over eight years ago my husband and I decided it would be more economical for me to stay home with both of our kids instead of tossing my whole paycheck into daycare. I only worked part time but my family missed that extra income desperately. Out of this desperation EMJ Design was born.

My mom gifted me with my first sewing machine, a Viking Husquavarna. I seriously knew only how to sew straight lines so I began making baby blankets and receiving blankets. They were great sellers on Ebay. I was bringing in a little extra money but I wanted to step it up a bit. I asked my mom lots of questions, asked her to show me the ropes as an experienced seamstress. I soon began to branch out and design my own bags. Soon I was selling at the local farmer's market and at craft fairs.

In 2007 a friend of mine told me about Etsy. I signed up that day and made my first sale two days later. I like having my own shop to manage without too much technical gobbly-gook. Since then I have sold hundreds of bags here on Etsy, at farmer's markets, craft fairs, consignment shops and to friends and loved ones. I wore my old Viking out and upgraded to a Pfaff.

I also believe in giving back. I have made bunches of baby items for local hospitals, dresses for girls in Haiti and given a sewing hand to whomever needs it.

I feel blessed beyond words to be able to design, create and function as the sole worker of EMJ Design. This small business has allowed me to stay at home with my two crazy kids. Did I mention I home school them too. Now I just need to find more time to sew!
