Some old fashioned industries are leveraging the internet
and technology in ways that just weren?t possible only a few
years ago. Sewing has always been a bigger market than you
would think. However, the latest technology makes this $8.7
Billion dollar market seem like it has been given a whole
?It?s quite amazing to think where all this is heading,?
Said Tom Michaelson of Tomssewingguide.com.
Most people think of sewing as something their grandmother
did to fix their buttons on their shirts. More think that
sewing patterns are for the small hobbyists. These days,
sewing is a whole lot different. The collaborative spirit of
the internet has made all hobbies easier to enjoy. Banks of
free sewing patterns exist all over the internet. Yahoo
groups, and private email lists have helped sewers connect
with each other all over the world. The revolution is here.
Even Singer (the company that makes Singer sewing machines)
has a website. If a company as old and respected as Singer
has made an investment in the online world, the web is
definitely here to stay. Furthermore, many of the big
retailers have at least experimented with custom made
clothing. High speed data lines allow measurements to be
taken at the local mall with the custom sewing and tailoring
done thousands of miles away.
?I think this might be just the beginning. The world? of
opportunity that technology opens up to everyone is mind
boggling? said Michaelson. Tom Michaelson is a contributing author at
