    Do you know which model Bernina you have? The older ones are highly valued over here, and sell for a very good price at their age.
    Her name is Electronic 802, all metal, with all original accessoires. Her age, I think 35 years or older, Roland's mother is dead, I can't ask her.

    I have a dream to have my own shop. I lost my job in june 2011, this is very hard. I am looking for a new job, but it is not easy in this time.

    Petra - What beautiful collars and harnesses! The choice of colors and fabrics are wonderful and your workmanship is expert. Really.

    I'm so sorry about your job. The economy is bad everywhere. I hope something will work out for you soon.

    Your answer to unemployment is staring you right in the face. Start an ebay store and etsy store i guarantee you that you will soon be making collars full time!

    I agree with everyone here. You have a talent, and it could possibly be the answer to your unemployment. You could be selling these across the world. I think you should make up about 20 different designs and try to get them into a local pet chain store by visiting their corporate offices.

    You would surely be able to get an order. Or do you have dog boutiques in Germany? This is a specialty store where they sell exclusive pet products.

    You could start with the collars and leashes and then try your hand at crate liners, and pet beds. I see you employing 1/2 dozen people to help you as time goes on.

    Truly, think about it. I would rather buy from you then try to make myself. Besides I don't have a sewing machine that would handle that thick fabric.

    Look into the Etsy site to sell your stuff.

    You really need to sell these. They are so well made and stylish. I agree with others eBay and etsy are both a great way to get started as well as dog boutiques. Good luck.
