    Hi,
    I am a new member to Flying Solo. I have been operating my clothing manufacturing business since 1996.
    We have just opened our online clothing store, starting with Australian made t-shirts (made by us), made with Australian made fabrics. This is something I feel very strongly about, in helping turn our local economy around :)
    We also are a contract sewing business, specialising in small production runs for start up businesses.

    Love all the helpful advice on this site!
    I listen to the videos while I’m working- great inspiration

    Greetings Jocelyn,

    Welcome to the Flying Solo forums.

    I see your biz is based in Mullumbimby… where I live! Nice choice ;) I wonder if we’d recognise one another? Probably, it’s a small town (and a small world).

    Hope you continue to enjoy what FS has to offer.

    Love your work,

    Sam

    Hi Sam,

    Who would have thought?! It indeed is a very small world:) Jocelyn Serone

    Thanks for the encouragement on the buy local attitude! And as for 1996 was a long while ago, I was only 10 when i started my business :) No, seriously, there is always something new to learn. I am continually coming to crossroads in my business & having to make decisions as to the direction we need to go.

    Good to see a ‘local’ manufacturer, well done and I wish you all the best.

    The far north coast is great but does put you fair way from key marketplaces. If you get down to Sydney come and visit one of our 4Networking meetings, I think people would love the Aussie Made concept.

    Cheers

    Hi there Jocelyn!
    I have been surfing around the FS site for over a year looking for a business just like yours. It is just POSSIBLE you may be able to help me, I have my fingers crossed.
    I have been running my small business (BareWear) for the last year and am desparately trying to find an AUSTRALIAN business to produce my designs so I can get out of China. It’s not that my current manufacturer has let me down in any way, they are ethically producing my products in a family run, non sweatshop environment…but it is still China, and I desparately want to bring it back to Australia.

    I currently have bamboo/organic cotton nappies made for me, however I have been working on a completely brand new design, and it seems the perfect opportunity to bring the business back to Oz if I can.

    From the sound of it (I have been perusing your website) you will consider doing small production runs for small businesses? I would love the opportunilty to discuss this further with you.

    Should I email you directly via the email on your website? Or do you have an alternate one you would prefer?

    Very much look forward to hearing from you.
    Warm Regards,
    Kristy Speers ([email protected])
