I’m Not Losing My Mind

by Charlotte Colmon

Here’s the text of an email I just sent out to the Quilting Business community… No… I’m not losing my mind! A couple of days ago, I posted on the blog about completely redefining how I offer products on the QuiltingBusiness.com site. (if you missed it, you can see it here: http://www.quiltingbusiness.com/missing-in-action/) In the 3rd […]


Tell Your Quilting Business Story

by Charlotte Colmon

If you want to succeed in today’s over saturated business environment, you need to have a story for your quilting business. Why? Because people are completely overwhelmed by the amount of information they process on a day-to-day basis. With hundreds of television channels, regular and satellite radio, and not to mention the Internet, today’s buying […]


Some Light Housekeeping

by Charlotte Colmon

I’m in the process of pulling together some ideas for my first big article around the new topic areas. I’m going to start with “how to sell your quilts” with a particular emphasis on why you need to create a story and price HIGHER. I know it sounds a little bit crazy, but if you want to succeed, you really need to work on the high end of the market (or at least the mid-high end).

Now, for some light housekeeping…

More…I am in the process of changing my email delivery methods. From now on, I’m going to be sending out an email when I post to the blog. This will make it easier to not only keep in touch with the Quilting Business community in a more organized fashion, but will also make sure all of the content is archived on the blog. But, since I’m switching the methods, you may receive duplicate emails from me if you signed up to the Quilting Business email list over the past two months. I’ll eventually remove the 35 or so people from the older blog list, but I wanted to apologize up front for duplicate emails.

Preliminary Results

by Charlotte Colmon

The preliminary results are in, and it looks like we have two top contenders for topic areas on QuiltingBusiness.com.  With 240 votes cast, I was very pleased with the participation, and I think the feedback will help improve the site and make it more relevant for the Quilting Business community. And the winners are: How […]


Non-Traditional Quilting Business

by Charlotte Colmon

OK… so I’ve been very quiet since the holidays. Part of it was the football play-offs (and we won’t talk about the result of the Super Bowl ever again!), and part of it has been sheer laziness. But, with the promise of Spring just around the corner, I’ve started to come out of my self-imposed […]


Here’s another question from one of the Quilting Biz community. It comes from Dyna, who is looking to get some basic information about business permits and advertising a new quilting business. Here are her questions: If you are actually running the business from your home are any type of permits required from the city or […]


Quilting Business Clues…

by Charlotte Colmon

Part of what I’m trying to do with the new www.QuiltingBusiness.com web site is provide links to some good information from other sources. That includes other quilting blogs and websites, and also the occasional general news story. I came across an interesting article in the Lifestyle section of the Orlando Sentinel about decorating your home […]
