    I would suggest that the biz name not be too cutsey and definitely say what you do. Ours is
    SMM Embroidery and Gifts. Owners name and addy on biz cards, especially if you are going to do shows. Phone and web page addy if you have one. I would leave off email. Custom is on there somewhere. People like to know who they are doing biz with, In NH you register your name with the Secretary of State and pay a nominal fee. I believe it is good for 5 yrs. We moved and forgot to renew it and someone else took the original name. So we modified it. Be sure to register for paying sales tax...NH does not have one. Please feel free to PM me if you have other questions...been doing custom emb. since 1993 and have now gone back to my first love...sewing.

    My suggestion would be : Unique Gifts, Etc under that I would put: Custom Quilts, Embroidery, and more

    Sometimes if you put beachy words in, people will think you only do beachy things.

    I also like: This Mom Quilts, it's cute but I don't think it sounds as professional as you want to sound.

    Whatever you choose, Good Luck with it. Your already lucky to be able to stay at home with you young ones.

    Whatever name you decide on, look it up on the internet to see how many others there are out there. You don't want to be the 501st 'Sewing by the Sea'. Also, don't kow if FL is like MO, but there are 2 fabric stores near me with the exact same name about 30 miles apart & they are not related.

    How about Cotton Candy by the Sea Shore? This brings to mind fall because the fairs are in the fall around FL and at the boardwalks they sell cotton candy.

    I agree that I would avoid "Handmade", "handcrafted" or any of those other words - they don't sound as professional as I'm sure your quilts are. And "gifts" sounds to me like the cheesy stuff you find at a travel stop "gift shop". We have a furniture store in the area called "George's Woodcrafts". Before I went there (and then only because we needed to find something to entertain my dad who had been a woodworker) I thought they made stuff like paper towel holders or kleenex boxes. But they have the most gorgeous furniture they make right there. But, with that name, you'd never know it. Someone suggested "Village Artisan Studio". That 's probably my favorite so far.

    I like this! It says it all. I don't care for the White Sands suggestion. It brings to mind New Mexico not FL. Also the Candy Corn suggests fall or farmland. It's limiting. I would also add "custom" somewhere in the name. People will pay more for custom than handmade.

    What about "Seaside Exclusive Gifts: Quilts, Machine Embroidery and Made to Order clothing.

    But wait.....I'm retiring in Jan, and hope to supplement my husbands SS (I'm 6 years away from that) with the same idea. But, although I'm in Florida now (we may be close to each other), once retirement comes I'm spending most of my time either in Michigan at our cabin or in Atlanta with the grandbabies. So, if the name speaks to you - feel free

    I love all the responses/suggestions/ideas so far... I am in the process of seeing all that needs to be done - we've decided to go so far as to do a corporation (tax purposes) and am getting all our ducks in a row - will be submitting all things soon!:) I'll let you know the name in a couple of days when we know FOR SURE. THANKS one and all.

    In South Dakota when applying for a license it is better if you use your last name as part of the title. Makes it easier to get one, otherwise it requires other paperwork. So I always used Bult's Quilts and More as my name. Not licensed at the moment but not selling either, lol.
