    I am an upholsterer, but my true passion is in clothing and alterations. I would like to start a business where people bring me a “wardrobe” of thrift store finds and I alter them to fit. Naturally some of the results would fall under “eclectic”, as it may be obvious that some of these fashions are not RTW. I have made clothing for myself and had positive comments when people notice they’re out of the norm. I own a machine for sewing leather as for boots and shoes, but don’t yet have experience to use it. I bought it because my feet are hard to fit. I want to help others with similar issues. Yes I need to pay bills, but what drives me is making things that help people in their everyday lives. Thanks for reading. And thanks for your post. Very enlightening. BC

    • I guess people never make mistakes. I would love to take a writing class from the women who never had a typo? Where can I enroll?

    Thank you for interviewing Kohl. He definitely has a big heart to help others. My biggest takeaway is his advice to others who desire to start an apparel company…”Start.” Great advice!
