Hi Darlings, The Mimi G blog and social media sites are growing at such a rapid pace that I keep receiving the same questions over and over from those new to Mimi G. So, I wanted to take a moment to answer some of the most frequently asked questions. Thank you so much for your interest and support!!
Q. Do you sew for other people?
A. Kind of, this is a yes/no sort of answer. I dont sew for hire, meaning I don’t take orders from people for items shown on my blog or custom work. BUT I do have a “Made To Order” business “STITCHED9” with my partner and we add items I have worn or designed for purchase. These are small production runs so they sell out quickly and are all limited quantities. You can follow Stitched9 to stay up to date on new items added or read more about the site HERE
Q. I want to start sewing but don’t know where to begin.
A. Go to the “Sewing 101” section of the site where you will find a free FOUR Week sewing basics course to start with. I also give recommendations on starter machines, tutorials, books, etc.
Q. Are you a stylist?
A. Yes I work in Los Angeles as a stylist to private clients and also with clients out of state as part of my Virtual Styling Program (site coming soon)
Q. Do you make stuff for men?
A. In 2014 I plan to add styling ideas for men as well as sewing tutorials for mens apparel.
Q. Do you make children’s clothing?
A. No. I don’t do kids clothing…at the moment anyway.
Q. What is your site about? What does DIY mean?
A. My main focus is and always has been to share my knowledge of sewing with the world! I teach via my blog and inspire people to pick up a new hobby even if just for fun or to make a quick item or two. Sewing is fun and should not be a dunning task so I specialize in making ALL my tutorial beginner friendly, easy to understand and most important fun and rewarding. I also offer OOTD’ (outfit of the day) and fashion/style tips via the blog. DIY means “Do It Yourself”
