    Hi!

    I have been making stuff to sell at markets, and craft bazaars. I want to have a company name. Any suggestions? I use treadle sewing machines for my quilting, and I really like Quilteremily - but Quilteremily what?

    Thank you :)

    You've answered the question with the question you ASKED - Emily quilts what? Emily quilts like a crazy woman?

    Oh - and take it from someone who named their business after their log on names for forums - bad idea.... when searching for things that I had on my website, all I found was replies to the boards I belong to ... I now have a different name for forums since according to hubby it was too late to change the company name :(

    What about Auntie Em's TreadleMades? it sounds really cute this way and more into the craft shows "scene" at least to me.

    I like Debs and Auntie Ems. You could have a picture of either a victorian lady or more cutsie lady sewing at a treadle machine, as your logo.

    I found Quilteremily hard to read & didn't see the name Emily right away. Auntie Em Quilts was a cute idea.

    Emily Maid Creations or w/MADE - finish off the thought. Auntie Em's is very cute, too!

    The name Emily came from the Roman name Aemilius. Rather than using Emily, why not use Aermilius Craft Boutique?

    Auntie Em Quilts has my vote - very cute and brings up memories when we were younger.

    As a business owner may I suggest that the first part of your business name be Emily. Emily's Quilting for example.
    Your name needs to be unique and something people will remember. There are a lot of businesses starting with the word 'quilting' but Emily is a beautiful name and somewhat unique--people would remember 'that lady at the last bazaar whose name was Emily' :-)

    The ladies here on the board helped someone else pick a name for a business not too long ago. Since then we haven't heard from her. I don't want to be a part of losing another member!

    I like this one because it denotes that you used the treadle machine. Jan
