    What name would you give this business??

    If you were going to open your own quilting/sewing business that included selling such handmade items as quilts, X-mas stockings, pillowcases, tablerunners, bags etc. what catchy name would you give the business so people would remember it?

    Oh dear, this is a hard question. I would want something that made the type of store clear and still clever. You aren't talking about a fabric store, and you want to make sure folks don't think that is what it is. Still you couldn't do something vague like Dina's Creations...that could be anything. (My name is Dina.) I would think it would have to be something like Dina's Handmade Treasures....but then that is vague too. Maybe something like Quilts, Etc., Homemake Quilts and More, or Quilts and More ??

    I look forward to reading the suggestions you get. Good luck with your business, whatever you decide to name it.

    I would keep in mind that the name has to be something that is easily remembered, spelled, and easy to look up as far as the address or phone number goes.

    I definitely wouldn't (and didn't) tell anyone until after I registered the business name, the Etsy name, the domain name and the blog name at a minimum, maybe more to cover the social media side of things.

    And don't do a domain name search for availability of your chosen name(s) until you are ready to register it. Searches are a matter of record and names can be grabbed up by people who will then turn around and try to sell it to you at a higher price than you would have otherwise paid.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    "I definitely wouldn't (and didn't) tell anyone until after I registered the business name, the Etsy name, the domain name and the blog name at a minimum, maybe more to cover the social media side of things."

    Ghostrider is right on this one. Once you pick your name you want to be able to use your name to secure your space on the net. You will want to registar the name with Etsy, FaceBook and possible Twitter more if you can think of it. For myself I only do Etsy, FB and my own site but all with the same name. Good Luck with whatever name you come up with. When you get your Etsy store make sure to come and share it so we can favoite you :-)

    For a name I like Quilted by Design, Quilted, Just Quilted, I liked KoKo's Kuilting, KoKo Kreations

    That is about all I can come up with--sorry my oldest daughter named mine.

    I wish you the best of luck on your new adventure Oh how about that one KoKo's Quilting Adventure :-)

    Since it's all items that are stitched, how about "In Stitches"

    I had that question also. I make quilts (baby on up), wall hangings, art quilts, hooded baby towels, etc. I just used "By Sunnye"

    Then, I'd have a logo with a needle and thread.

    Dunster, you have my suggestion. I guess great minds work alike!!! I'm glad I read the other suggestions, because Koko Kwilts popped into my mind. So that is 2 votes for that name. Good luck with your new business.

    How about Koko's Mountain Magic. You do a myriad of projects and for anyone that is pure magic in and of itself and you are located in the Adirondacks and they are mountains, hence - Koko's Mountain Magic. After a while, customers will just say "Hey, let's go to Mountain Magic"!!!!!!! AND THERE YOU ARE!!!! Edie
    Home is where the rags of your life are turned into quilts, lemons become lemonade and a few extra pounds are simply welcomed as "more of you to love."
    I am so confused. I don't know if I found a rope or lost my horse."
