Why are you seeking funding and how will you spend the funding?
I aim to purchase an industrial sewing machine from a local upholsterer ($950) and finance a certified boat cover making course (boatcanvasuniversity.com, $1800 plus hotel and travel) to broaden my potential clients and offer solutions to the folks at the coast who may have lost umbrellas and boat covers during Hurricane Florence
Who is on your team?
Thank your backers and make them feel appreciated!
I am seeking a tiny gift of $1000 to purchase an industrial sewing machine. This machine will allow me to expand my business offerings focusing on boat cover and umbrella repair/creation. In addition, I wish to take advantage of a certified four-day boat covering course in Maryland (boatcanvasuniversity.com $1800, + travel and rooming).
I have been sewing for over 40 years, have recently been up-cycling event banners (vinyl) into tote bags, etc., and wish to take the opportunity to include canvas and outdoor material. I do not charge for materials when I use the event banners for products.
If I reach the goal, and kindly assisted me, I will provide you with an Up-cycled $25 valued product.
