Three Reasons Why You Need this Guide
if You Are Looking to Start Your Own

Here is a summary of the benefits you receive

1) Comprehensive quilt shop business guide

General business books don't go into enough detail about the specifics of opening, running, and marketing a successful quilt shop. This book delivers the step-by-step instructions you need to get your quilt shop up and running in the least amount of time.

2) Written with the novice in mind

Never run a business before? You don't have to worry about getting bogged down with over-complicated terms or unnecessary information. This book provides an easy-to-read primer to help guide you through some difficult concepts of starting a quilt shop and running it effectively.

3) Excellent marketing section

Without customers, your quilt shop will quickly die. That's why there's an entire section dedicated to marketing your quilt shop. You'll see which advertising and promotional techniques will the most useful and effective methods of getting the word out about your new quilt shop.

4) Industry statistics and demographics

It's tough to market your quilt shop unless you know what your average customer looks like. Discover some interesting facts about the quilting market, and how you can get involved in this $21 billion plus market.

5) Packed with valuable resources

There's no way that any one book can give you every little bit of information you will need to run your quilt shop long term. So, what I've done is provided some additional resources that will give you more information about some key concepts, including running a business and finding suppliers.

6) How to get financing and write a business plan

Probably the scariest part of starting a new business is getting the money together for the initial inventory and improvements on the space. I offer sound advice on how to pull together a business plan that will go a long way towards getting the loan you need for your quilt shop.

7) Quilting classes primer

Most successful quilt shops consider quilting classes to be the most effective method of generating new business. You get some great tips on how to run an effective quilting class, including how to fill seats again and again.

8) Day-to-day business advice

Running a business is not a walk in the park. In fact, it can be one of the most difficult things you'll ever do. But, with the right planning and attitude, you can take a lot of the "sting" out of the more mundane tasks, like record keeping, accounting, hiring, and more.

9) What to order

You know you want your quilt shop to be a "cut above" the rest of the quit shops you've frequented. A lot of what people will think about your quilt shop will be tied to what kind of inventory you offer. Not only will you get a list of some of the items you should have in your shop, but also a sample budget.

10) Working with distributors and manufacturers

There are distinct differences in how you go about ordering your inventory — either direct from the manufacturers or through a fabric and notions distributor. You'll get tips for working with both manufacturers and distributors (and which is better!).

11) Store layout advice

You may have an exact idea of how your store should look, and exactly what the theme of your store will be. In this book, you'll get some great advice on how to get the quilt shop of your dreams, and how to lay it out to make the most use of the space you have.

And much, much more...

Now, you're probably wondering how and why we can do all those things.

Let me explain.

How to Start Your Own Quilt Shop was written with the business novice in mind. You know quilting and love your hobby. But, you may not know how to start and run a successful business. This book is designed to give you that knowledge and to help you decide if you want to make that leap from quilting hobby to full-service quilt shop owner.
