A dusting of my past

My photo
My name is Dezarae’. i am originally from Hutchinson, Kansas. i joined the military at 17 served 4 1/2 years. The military itself was not bad, but i delt with alot concerning people in the military. I taught myself to crochet when i was twelve, havent done much until late 2008. When i crochet and knit it makes me feel like i belong to something. Its the one thing in my life that i can fix if i mess it up. I am working on slowly starting up a business which will be called Making Traditions. Making Traditions is a store for all ages and all sexes. You can learn anything from needlepoint, spinning fibers, crochet, knitting, canning, cooking, baking, vegetable gardening tips, sewing, Quilting, preserving, and freezing. Along with being a one stop shop for all these categories. The motto of my business is “making yesterday’s talents, today’s traditions”. My goal is to find a link between the past and the present to bring families of all generations together. while also providing skills which will come in handy for the rest of one’s life.

Making Traditions ...





Have you ever busted a button off of your clothes, broke a zipper off of a pair of pants, or just irritated of high food costs? I can help you save your money and clothes. My name is Dezarae’ Haley and I teach self-sufficiency in an ever changing world & times, and teach habits we all can do to live a better life when times get tough, or even if they don’t.

What I am purposing is a place named Making Traditions where men and women alike can go to learn and easily find supplies. I have overheard people in the grocery store how ridiculous the prices are. I have been approached by people around the world on how to sew, knit or crochet so they too can make their own clothes. I have witnessed the disappointment in major chains like Wal-Mart, about the lack of supplies. I can help by teaching in canning, soap making, sewing, fiber-arts, and needlepoint. Along with teaching both in person, and through online video packages, I will also be selling retail in the related areas as well. The closest Competition is 20 miles away.
Customers who are interested in Making Traditions consist of low to middle class adults (age 18 to 40) who are interested in learning ways to save money by becoming self sufficient.

Being a knit and crochet instructor, I have taught students as young as the age of seven to adults older than my grandparents. I work diligently with Cyndi Muller who is a long time instructor and self-sufficient advocate.
My business will be located in the Dixon-Amboy area of Northern Illinois. The population of that particular area is approximately 122 thousand. Making Traditions also takes great pride in trying to stay as much american made as possible.

Now you may be wondering how much it is going to cost to get my company up and running. Through my research, I strongly believe I can have a successful online and home based business up and running with the amount of $25K. The return rate of the investment is that it will be paid in full within two years plus an additional 15%. This money along with my personal money I have invested will be used to cover the startup fees, startup inventory, as well as marketing.
I am anticipating having Making Traditions off the ground and running by summer 2011.
