Patchwork & Quilting Business

The ultimate introduction to running a patchwork and quilting business; what is involved, how to do it well, and which fabrics you will need to use to become a successful fabric business.

Starting a Patchwork & Quilting Business

Sewists who love Patchwork and Quilting are always on the lookout for good quality fabrics therefore the goals of an entrepreneur when starting a new fabric business for this industry is all about being able to keep selling good quality fabrics to provide their customers for their beautiful quilting projects. Many shop owners love the way the Kennard & Kennard stock unique fabric which are not found in chain stores, allowing their customers to source premium quality cotton fabrics that aren't found everywhere.

The importance of high quality patchwork and quilting fabric

Firstly what is the difference between patchwork and quilting? Patchwork refers to an item made up of two or more fabrics sewn together to create a visual pattern, often using 100% cotton fabric. Quilting refers to the stitching that hold three layers of fabric together - the top usually patchwork, the middle the cotton or wool batting (or wadding), and the bottom a wide backing fabric, a plain fabric or patterned fabric.

The quality of the fabric you use is one of the core reasons your customers will come back to buy from you again, or not.The wash and wear quality of the fabric you choose to make your products in will either set you apart from your industry competition, or let you down. Don't risk your brand reputation by purchasing unknown or less than superb quality fabrics. It might seem like a cheaper win up front, but the long term damage (often behind the scenes!) at the customer level, is just not worth it. Build a customer base who trust your fabric quality, and return to you year after year.
