Have you been thinking about doing a side hustle business but are tentative about jumping in? We're here to help. Machine embroidery is a great way to stay at home and earn some extra cash.
The pandemic diverted our status-quo paradigm of getting a 9 to 5 job, commuting to the office to work, and returning home every night. During the quarantine, people and companies realized that, huh, work can be accomplished no matter where you are physically. Many people were able to keep paychecks coming in simply by working from home. Who knew, huh?
Another effect of the pandemic and this new realization is that if you are working from home, you don't need to necessarily stay in the job you have. We have seen great shifts in the workforce in America as people are taking their opportunities to leave unsatisfying jobs and accepting jobs on their own terms. Additionally, because we aren't wasting precious time in long commutes any more, we have extra time on our hands. That, on top of increasing costs for EVERYTHING, we are finding ourselves strapped for cash. Enter the Side Hustle.
Side hustles are becoming increasingly more popular--and necessary. 45% of working Americans report having a side hustle business, according to Side Hustle Nation, an online information repository for side hustle entrepreneurs. "Among millennials, the statistic rises to 50%," the site claims. Side hustles are becoming a norm.
Machine embroidery is a great side hustle because it doesn't need to be attended to every moment. You can actually multitask and get more done during the day. Brother 6- and 10-needle and some single-needle machines were designed with small businesses in mind. These industrial strength machines are meant precisely to keep up with small business demands.
Brother's PR1055X is a creative powerhouse and incredible workhorse. Get right down to business with 10-needle speed and grow your side hustle into a full-fledged business operation. With wireless LAN connectivity and optional PE-Design 11 software, you can link up to ten machines without cables. You can follow the progress of your project and get alerts with the My Stitch Monitor mobile app on your mobile device. When combining designs, you can be even more efficient by having the machine sort the stitch order by color which reduces color changes and needle bar movement to minimize embroidery time. Finally, watch your creations become larger than life with the new zoom function of up to 1600% within My Design Center and up to 200% in other modes.
The Entrepreneur W PR680W 6-Needle Embroidery Machine is a great segue from a single needle to a multi-needle machine. With six-needle speed, a generous embroidery area, wireless connectivity, and over 100 built-in embroidery designs, your entrepreneurial dreams may be closer than you think.
When connected to your wireless network, you can transfer designs from your PC with Design Database Transfer (no USB required), while the My Stitch Monitor App alerts you when it's time to change thread or when your project is complete. Get precision accuracy positioning and light up your fabric to see where the needle will drop for all your projects with the Crosshair Embroidery Droplight Laser. With the generous 8" x 12" embroidery area, 100 built-in embroidery designs, 18 monogramming font styles, 140 frame pattern combinations, 50 lettering fonts, 50 built-in utility stitch designs, and 10 buttonhole styles in 3 sizes, the design possibilities are virtually endless.
With such accessories as the cap frame set, embroidering caps is a snap.
Finally, the PRS100 is Brother's industrial single-needle embroidery machine. This is perhaps the most versatile, single needle embroidery machine you'll ever own that can do "sew" much more! Its tubular free arm configuration gives you the flexibility and ease to embroider difficult to reach areas, such as hats, and stuffies, all while reducing fabric tangles. Plus, its mere 18-inch wide footprint makes it the perfect addition to any room in your house. Time saving conveniences such as side bobbin winding and easy thread color changes make creating even easier. This model also has extra embroidery frames, like the mini frames, that will make embroidering small areas easy. Your embroidery options are virtually endless. You can even embroider your favorite Disney characters from ibroidery.com on caps and other small items. Sew Versatile. Sew Creative. Sew Much Personalization. Do more with just one machine!
