I initially choose writing a book to share my knowledge

Clothing Alteration Secrets Revealed 3rd EditionIt took 9 years to document my methods and techniques and complete my first edition of Clothing Alteration Secrets Revealed.  Once completed, I sent off copies to publishers.  A lot of publishers did not reply, and those that did, said no. Limited copies available Clothing Alteration Secrets Revealed

So I took the next step of getting the book printed, which included the book design, layout and creation of the Jean Genie.  Once that was complete I began to sell it via my new website.  I was approached by a publisher who reprinted the book calling it The Sewing Bible for Clothes Alterations.  However it is no longer available as they are not reprinting it.
