Yes, I have it bookmarked in my favorites. I've used that one to help fine tune my personal sloper (chapter 2). And a lot of the vintage styles still appear in bridal wear. So the site a lot of time is more helpful than my up-to-date patternmaking book I bought. One of these days, I hope to have the whole website printed out and put into a 3-ring binder. Here's another site she might like. http://www.fashion-era.com/Pattern_drafting/pattern_drafting_introduction_skirt1_why_draft.htm#Free%20Skirt%20Block%20Draft%20-%20The%20Basics

I looked at the site -I have NEVER sewn in my life. I know how to thread a needle and maybe do cross-stich - but that is about it. Thanks for the advice. I'll have to start turnin those wheels up there, surely Gog gaveme another gift just waiting to be found! About the only thing I know how to do is take care of people, that is what I do-I'm a nurse.

That site was from Sild to me. Her dd can sew and from what Sild has posted, she sews very well. Especially since she is now making her own patterns. Since you are a nurse, you could do private nursing or assisted living. Not a career that you can do at home, but one that you could from home. My dd works as a driver/care giver at a group home for mentally/physically handicapped adults. He wouldn't trade places with me for anything. But then I couldn't do his job or yours.

To me, pyramid schemes include any company where the primary profit is made not from the sale of product, but from the signing up of new distributors in order to get a share of their profit.

basically any "job" that requires money to start (thru a company) is a scam. it makes more sense to actually make something and sell it, like on etsy or ebay.

Have you found any good companies that have the stay at home option? I'm on the lookout. I have asked my manager about the possibility for me to work from home, but it doesn't look too promising. Unfortunately my company also has no maternity leave, so I'll have to resort to FMLA for some of my recovery. I have 20 more weeks to plan...EEEK!

I would love to work at home! Right now i'm a stay at home mom. I have a 1 year old son named Joshua. Its not easy staying home and taking care of a grown man and a child. I would love to work at home and be able to tell my husband "hey I'm doing work too, so get off my back". I love being home with my son. I'm aware that a lot of people think its outdated. I truly think there is great benefits in staying at home with your child. So if anyone can help me to find a form of work that i can do at home (and if it truly works). I don't have the money to send out for books and everything else most work from home jobs ask for. Please if anyone can HELP ME!!!

What did you do before you quit? That may give you some pointers. Perhaps you could get some consulting business.

If you want generic suggestions below are things a few of my aquaintences do:

1) Dog walking
2) House sitting
3) Book keeping for a small business if you have accounting experience
4) House cleaning
5) Tutoring
6) Home stationary business
7) 40 hour per month consulting contract with federal government - basically she does what she used to do only on a project by project basis.
8) Lawn Mowing/gardening
9) Small scale wedding/party planning
10) Errand running/(I hate to say it) Gal Friday
