In the area where I live we have a serious lack of Quilt shops. We have a really good one in Shreveport but that's an hour out of my way and the one in Bossier is no help really. When I was first starting on my wedding quilt I went there for help and all the lady was interested in was selling me a machine. We have tons of fabric shops which is good but seriously no quilt shops.
I would love to open my own shop and I plan on writing a business plan to get the ball rolling. Can the ladies who own quilting and fabric businesses please give me some advice on what direction to go? And those that frequent quilt shops give some idea of what you would want in a shop?
