If you’re good with a needle and thread (or even if you’re not), starting an alterations and repairs business can be a great way to make some extra money. Whether you specialize in hemming pants or repairing ripped seams, there’s always a need for someone who can perform these services.

To get started, you’ll need to invest in some basic sewing supplies, like a sewing machine, thread, and fabric. You may also want to take some sewing classes to brush up on your skills. Once you’re ready to start taking clients, market your business by hanging flyers in local businesses or posting ads online. Then, start Alterations and Repairs!
