It looks like this is something we'll be moving forward with then here on the forum!  What I'd like is that anyone interested in having their own personal sub-forum, please PM me and we'll discuss the details.  

Thanks everyone!

Will it be possible for us to set up storefronts at a later date, as well? I'm definitely interested, but until I get my own sewing machine in Dec, I don't think I'll have time to make for people besides myself and my friends.

Yes, of course!  This is not a one time offer.  However, I will be offering a special rate to the first members who sign up now to get us started with our new area of the forum!

Personally, I think it's a good idea, but again the question of fee has not been answered either.  I'd really like to know if it would be a monthly, yearly, or one time fee.

I enjoy sewing but right now my time is limited but to be able to set this up and have it ready for later when I do have more time to sew would be awesome.

I would also be very interested in the fee rate and schedule.

I have considered making inexpensive starter wench skirts & chemises and also little boy garb for resale as a way to pay for my own and give me an activity other than watching tv to get through winter ... but don't have any way to market them.  Depending on the cost I would definitly consider it.

I would go for it Betty.  Try a site like Etsy for easier marketing.  I'd recommend doing girls sets too.  I run the children's performance troupe at our festival and my parents always have a hard time with kids costuming.

As the mother of a twelve year old girl - I concur!  Making clothes that they can wear for more than one year that do not cost an arm and a leg would rock!

As a home working Leather crafter and seamstress I would LOVE to have a small store front here to sell my pouches and such. I do mostly leather but I can sew ANYTHING! So Let us know what the fees will be and all...I may drop my old website in favour of this! Cat

Let me know if you need any help, anyone, with logos, etc. I'm not sure what you'll be doing to make the storefronts 'pretty' but I'm willing to offer my services for barter. Not here just to advertise, wasn't my first intention at all. But was curious as to how people who likely don't have a lot of experience putting together things like this, once they have their 'space' will be able to do the digital things to them.

I'd be willing to help with this project, in any way that my design/web engineering skills allow. :)
