The value that comes from belonging to an organization always has a price. While this blog is a tremendous value, in and of it self (and free I might add), with all of the tutorials and shared information, “The book ” helps take the serious enthusiast to the next level. While some of the people who have purchased “The Book” are not building a sewn produts business, I am sure that they would agree with me that $65.00 is a very fair price for this huge amount of knowledge and being able to converse with this wide variety of talented people. As in any piece of printed information, there may be sections of the book that you may not use immediately but you will most likely refer to in the future. I really boils down to it being your money and your choice of what to buy with it.

Kathleen, I am an enthusiast, as you call us home sewers. I realize I am not in your target audience, but I am picking up pattern-making and sewing tips, and learning a lot about an important industry.

I would love to join the forum, and learn even more. But I don’t own a copy of your book, and I’m not sure I will get $65 of value from it (having no desire to go into the fashion business myself).

Can you explain (in a blog comment, so it will be in the archives):

- why sewing enthusiasts should buy your book (and thus gain access to the form), OR
- why we shouldn’t be interested in the forum, OR
- how we can get the benefits of the forum without buying the book.

And a reminder … if you ever produce a book aimed at enthusiasts, not only will I buy a copy, but I will encourage all my friends who sew to buy a copy as well.

Have already read it once and reading it again. I’m one that for years has been looking for the type of information that is in her book and available on the membership area. Fashion-incubator.com is golden!

In response to your last post, I find this quite blunt, but very interesting. I find teams work better when you have a good mix of “types of people”; extroverts AND introverts, young AND older, guys AND girls. One definitely can help the other, even (maybe more so) if they’re not aware of it.

Makes me think also of a saying one of my high school teacher said to us (brainy type A all girl class – I know, outch!) : The best in shcool are usually NOT the best in the work place. Learning things and acting on it takes different skills. I find that for the MOST studious friends I had… this came true.

It’s too late to buy Google stock. You’re not going to make much money buying it at its current high price. I think the same attitude should apply when trying to meet new people… If you’re an aspiring writer and want to meet other writers, you can’t reach out to an author after he’s become a New York Times bestseller. Either you won’t reach him, or if you do, he’ll assume you have an agenda or want something from him.

Better, in my view, if your goal is to develop long-term relationships with interesting people, to focus on those whose “stock prices” are low but long-term potential high. Compared to the already rich and famous, no-names can be less egotistic and often more insightful. Plus the value flows bi-directionally (you can help each other).

How to find a hidden gem? … seek out introverts. Seek out people under age 30. Seek out people who are bad at marketing.

I wish I could find more time to rub elbows in the backroom. Your book is on my office bookshelf and is required reading for all my new employees. If you are in this business you really should read K’s book even if your an industry veteran.
