Small businesses are on the rise across the United States. Among those numbers is a new online business owned by Susana Moore called, Lilly’s Sewn Comfort. Mrs. Moore is a wife, mother, ministry leader and entrepreneur. Her young business began October 2020 based in Harker Heights, Texas, yet the skills and patience for sewing started years before just outside of Chicago in Berwyn, Illinois.
It Runs in the Family
Mrs. Moore recalls learning about business basics from her mother, “My mom use to sew and sell baby blankets, so I really learned it from my mom.” As a result, being around her mother, the future entrepreneur absorbed the concepts she now uses in creating and managing her growing online business. Her husband (former Army soldier of 12 years) is extremely supportive of her decision to have a business. Often times he is right by her side pinning fabric and assisting her in any way he can. Much like she did for her mother.
It’s All About the Minky
So, what exactly does Lilly’s Sewn Comfort produce? Lilly’s Sewn Comfort is known for their soft minky blankets which are 100% polyester. Each blanket is sewn with love and care by Mrs. Moore on her sewing machine in the comfort of her home. She has blanket sizes ranging from infant-king. Recently, minky pillowcases have been a frequent request and doing well.
Unfortunately, 2020 was an unpredictable year riddled with frequent chaos and tragedy. Mrs. Moore wanted to do her part to promote positivity and hope. Her quest kept leading her back to creating comfort for others. This was the deciding factor to start her company. With support from family and friends she moved forward in confidence birthing Lilly’s Sewn Comfort.
“It’s something I really enjoy. I started sewing baby blankets because I like being able to make something that can mean so much to someone and bring them comfort.” Mrs. Moore joyfully shared.
In a short time Mrs. Moore has hosted two vending events in Harker Heights. Orders for her phenomenal blankets are growing quickly in Texas. Simultaneously, sales momentum is picking up in other states through the business website. As the weather warms up she hopes to have her blankets in different craft shows. Expansion goals of hers is to sell in boutiques and travel to conferences and venues.
