Default Quilting business website

For those of you who own an online quilting business whom do you recommend for designing a website with the least expensive way. Did any of you use any ready designed website? Are they easy to use? Were they sufficient?

Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

Angela Walters has just launched a new website. You might find some ideas at thebusinessofmachinequilting.com

Thanks Tartan, but I am looking for a company or someone who makes websites. I apologize for not being very clear.

Go to Superior threads website and look at their newsletters. Bob Purcell, the owner, always promotes a website company at the end of his newsletters. Maybe that's what you want.

Check out both weebly.com and Network Solutions. Both are a DIY approach, but it's amazing now how many options are included so you aren't reinventing the wheel...

It depends on whether you're just doing a website to advertise your quilting business, or if you're doing a full-blown online fabric store. It all depends on how much coding and management you want to do yourself. There are many nuances and requirements to running an online store that you've never thought of until you get into it.

Which is it?

Thanks all for the replies and the pms I received. I ended up creating a domain through weebly and now started creating the website. I was looking for a full store where I can sell kits or precuts for quilt blocks especially GFG hexies and now the journey begins

Thanks again for the leads.

Years ago I use Network Solutions for my Web pages. I spent a great deal of time developing each page. The company did not do any of the work just provided me the web address and the bandwidth. I am sure what they make available today is many more services that they provided 20 years ago when I had my site up and running. My site did not exceed the basic bandwidth. My site has been down for better than 10 years now. Some of you may remember the site. I used Publisher on Microsoft Office Good luck in getting your site up and running.
