    what would you name your quilt store?

    i have thought about owning a quilt store and perhaps some of you have also.

    just for fun, what would you name your store?

    i'll start: 'Thunder Bolts: Quilting on the Edge".

    No, that's not a typo. My best friend is to baking as I am to quilting, so I told her we have to open a combination quilt/bake shoppe.

    It's just a joke between us though, neither of us would like to own a retail operation. We've both been there before (me a book store, she a restaurant) and we won't go back to that closed chapter in our lives.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    How about The Stitchuation? Nah...

    I'd go with Lynnie's Quilt Shop, LQS for short.

    I'd take an example from our Ontario government. For years they tried to make us call the store where we bought beer, The Brewer's Retail Outlet. Everybody just called it The Beer Store. Finally they gave up and all the new signs called it The Beer Store. I'd call our local store "The Quilt Shop".

    I always thought that 'Material Possessions' in Lake Forest, CA had the PERFECT name that gave the proper sense of value to fabrics that inspired me. As they went out of business within the last few years, I would steal their name in homage to the store.

    The "Thunderbolts" are the name of an acrobatic flying team in the new My Little Pony show. First thing I thought of when I saw this. Awesome. Most of my friends and their brothers/significant others and my Mom, we're all big fans.

    It's between these three: Cotton Cabin, Stitch n' Bitch, or better yet Fabricholoics Fellowship Hall
