During an interview Barbara shared her motivation for writing Pricing Without Fear:

Pricing without fear should be second nature, but it is not. What I have found is that of all the concerns sewing professionals have, pricing seems to be number one. My motivation for writing this book was to reassure sewing professionals that they can have a healthy business, and not be afraid to price for profit.

When I penned my first book, The "Business" Of Sewing, I covered the basic pricing methods, and gave illustrations. I briefly addressed overcoming doubt, fear and procrastination, which I later devoted an entire book to. Once I became more aware of how many people suffered from the fear of pricing, I recorded an audio entitled, Take The Fear Out Of Pricing, complete with exercises and worksheets. However, I wanted a tool that addressed pricing in more detail. One that any sewing professional could use no matter what field of specialty, thus came Pricing Without Fear.

Sykes has several new books:
The "Business" Of Sewing Vol. 1
The "Business" Of Sewing Vol.2
Do You Sew For Profit (A Guide For Wholesale, Retail and Consignment)
Marketing Your Sewing Business

She has also designed the following forms specifically for sewing professionals:
Forms On Computer Disc
Home Decor - Interior Design Forms
Marketing Forms CD
Marketing Graphics Forms
Deluxe Marketing Forms

Barbara Wright Sykes continues to offer solid advice for those who want to sew for profit!
