Explore sewing as a productive hobby and a profitable business
MY JOURNEY: Stitching | SEWING HOBBY TO STITCHING MALL
I love creating designs, things, ideas and content. As a kid, DIY, art and craft, reading and stitching that is also called sewing were my favourite pastimes.
I am fascinated with exploring different aspects of life and work, like management, training, business, stitching or sewing, yoga, design thinking and digital marketing.
Basically, I love to learn, and I love to share with those who are willing to grow.
When my mother used to stitch, I used to be fascinated by the stitching machine's movement.
As I grew up a little more, I used to sew a few things, and she used to guide me lovingly. She was a busy person, but I cherished the time she spent with me exclusively while stitching.

I started a Fashion Boutique
That fashion designing course led to starting up a fashion boutique, where I learnt different business models and how to scale up in stitching industry.
I also explored all possibilities to start work from home kind of business model of stitching work.
My job was going good when the shop owner sold the shop, and I started working from home.
I used to get stitching orders at home.
I had tailors working for me, and I used to earn good money out of that!
But soon enough, we shifted from there, and I was in a new place. So, that work was closed.
I yearned for an online platform where stitching industry enthusiasts could gel together and find a job or workforce.
STITCHING MALL - FIRST KICK
Around 2014, I visited one of my brothers. My sister-in-law was having some trouble with her stitching machine.
She knew my love with stitching, so she suggested that I open the machine and fix it, which I promptly followed with my brother, but fixing was complicated.
We were with a stitching machine, but we forgot which part would go where!
We panicked, and he opened some YouTube videos to check out "what to do !"
We got nothing useful, and I was frustrated about how come nobody shared what we wanted!
We fixed the machine somehow. And for the first time, I was introduced to the YouTube video tutorials and self-learning world.
STITCHING MALL - SECOND KICK
I had a highly talented senior colleague, who wanted to make her own clothes.
The reason was that her body was a little different.
She had different body requirements than other people.
She wanted tailor-made clothes for herself, but tailors used to make fun of her (though they didn't express it in front of her).
I could teach and explain, but the office was too much work, and her house was far from mine.
During this time, I had created a few dresses for myself, and some of my friends, colleagues, neighbours and relatives wanted to know how I sew and design things.
Finally Stitching Mall was created
I made a few videos and uploaded them on YouTube to share with the people I cared for.
With my curious mind, I also signed up for AdSense and done some other settings.
And I got busy getting my house constructed.
After a few months, one afternoon, I needed some money, so I thought of borrowing from my mother-in-law.
I was still fixing whether to ask her or not; I got a message "USD$$$ transferred to your account #000001".
I was suspicious because I had lost some money in 'work from home online' schemes, and I believed nobody could earn online.
But here I was with money in my bank account.
What did I do?
Some stitching and some computer internet settings, which anybody could do easily.
Therefore, I decided to create a platform where people could learn to earn within and around the stitching industry.
That is my wish, and I know if you have read so far, you may be loving stitching the way I do!
