To be able to start a business from home doing arts and crafts, to enable me to feel independant. I would like to be successful in business.

I need to purchase an expensive piece of equipment, in order for me to start my business customising clothing. 

The item is called a Brother Innovis MD280 Sewing and Embroidery Machine, which comes with Disney images to use, and the cost is £949.  I would use the rest of the money to purchase some clothing to embroider.

My background involves me always being a go getter and trying to improve my life, despite  experiencing loneliness and isolation due to having Dyspraxia, which is a mild lifelong learning disorder.

I had been made redundant last year during COVID, and have started a business 2 months ago. I am struggling to make any sales so far, as I am customising clothing by hand with paints, threads and Rhinestones, and need to invest in an embroidery machine to kick start my sales.  

You can see what I am doing on Facebook,Instagram and Depop @bespokegiftswraps.

Any investment would be greatly appreciated.
