So as you all know I love to support local and started a segment where we could share, learn and inspire! It is so important to support local and share your findings with others.
During lock down, we are going to do a whole lot of these to highlight these businesses – many of which are taking HUGE strain during this time – and shed some awareness and love to all.
So this is an exciting share with you today! I discovered Indelible recently who sell embroidery DIY kits, completed embroidery pieces, but also do commission pieces! Rache de Goede is the creative #girlboss behind this business and she is beyond talented! The commission pieces on her Instagram page are just out of this world, so stunning. They also use naturally dyed cotton pieces which are much better for the environment than synthetic dyes.
Please check out their website to shop online and to see all the goodies they have on offer. I would really appreciate too if you follow them on Instagram and Facebook as they would appreciate the love!
We chatted to the lovely Rache and she had this to say!
Tell us a little bit about your business.
I started my business during the lockdown as a way to keep me going mentally and physically. I love being creative and starting my own business has been a dream of mine for a long time. Lockdown gave me the time to create all of this. So I see some positive things coming out of these strange times for me.
What are the top 3 learnings you have had to find out the hard way since starting your own business?
– To trust the process. No one can earn success over night. Be patient.
-Social media is the key to advertise and build your business.
-Say yes to any opportunity coming your way, it will be worth it.
Where do you see your business in 5 years? Once we have gotten over the effects of the lockdown.
I would love to pursue my business as a full time job. Right now it’s my side hustle.
What is your advice to individuals out there wanting to start their own businesses but are too scared?
I recommend you do some research on what is out there and what does your competition look like before you start your own business. I decided to follow my passion and go for it. I’ve never looked back.
Tell us 2 things that are the BEST part about owning your own business and make it all worthwhile?
Doing what I love and turning it into a business. Creating something unique, knowing that the customer will purchase something eccentric.
How has lockdown affected you?
I’m a one man business. Lockdown made it difficult to complete certain pieces. I need supplies like hoops, fabric and thread, and when I ran out of stock my suppliers were closed which caused a delay on my side.
