    I am ready to register as a business and need a name.
    I am stuck on - Quilts by Ann
    but think I would like something a little more ...don't know what else it may need
    or should I just keep it short and simple and stick to Quilts by Ann ?

    I am open for any and all suggestions
    thanks

    Hi what about ' Ann to Quilt' or ' Quilt Ann Sew' or you could give yourself a nickname for your business...Quilt'n Annie, Piece by Piece. Sure you will get lots more, good luck with it though, congrats to you..

    Names beginning with Q come late on lists. At times that could make a difference. If could come into play with your new business, consider swapping them around:

    Ann Quilts

    thanks for all the suggestions.
    the "business" itself is still in planning stage.
    Have a festival to do in May and thought that would be a good place to start with name, business cards, flyer for classes.

    I was wondering a couple things. Are you only going to make quilts or sewn gifts too? Like accessories for the home and women's purses or such? "A Stitch Above" comes to mind if you are.

    Whatever you come up with do a little research and make sure that the name isn't "owned" by another business. Some although used aren't owned, some are.

    Ann's Brush & Thimble Quilting

    That brings in your tag line and places you at the top of the alphabet!

    yep! i love Brush & Thimble Quilt Shop!! Gotta keep your business name towards the beginning of the alphabet--especially if you have a website!! Let us know what you finally end up with so we can all visit either in person or online!! Good luck, I hope that you do well. I know that I just LOVE my LQS--great customer service, they remember my name, always willing to help with my projects, measuring and fabric color selection!! They also are eager to teach me things that I don't know--can't beat that!!
