    what would you name your quilt store?

    i have thought about owning a quilt store and perhaps some of you have also.

    just for fun, what would you name your store?

    i'll start: 'Thunder Bolts: Quilting on the Edge".

    No, that's not a typo. My best friend is to baking as I am to quilting, so I told her we have to open a combination quilt/bake shoppe.

    It's just a joke between us though, neither of us would like to own a retail operation. We've both been there before (me a book store, she a restaurant) and we won't go back to that closed chapter in our lives.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    How about The Stitchuation? Nah...

    I'd go with Lynnie's Quilt Shop, LQS for short.

    I'd take an example from our Ontario government. For years they tried to make us call the store where we bought beer, The Brewer's Retail Outlet. Everybody just called it The Beer Store. Finally they gave up and all the new signs called it The Beer Store. I'd call our local store "The Quilt Shop".

    I always thought that 'Material Possessions' in Lake Forest, CA had the PERFECT name that gave the proper sense of value to fabrics that inspired me. As they went out of business within the last few years, I would steal their name in homage to the store.

    The "Thunderbolts" are the name of an acrobatic flying team in the new My Little Pony show. First thing I thought of when I saw this. Awesome. Most of my friends and their brothers/significant others and my Mom, we're all big fans.

    I'd be very leary of posting a potential business name, storefront or online, on an open forum if you think you may ever want to actually use it. It's a good way to lose both the shop name and the domain name to someone else.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    I like campy names, but there's a LQS here named "Material Girl" and I HATE that song and it always gets stuck in my head when I think of that store so I wish they'd picked a different name, LOL. (dangit, it's in my head now! Augh!)

    I like my "Sewnoma" pun (I live in Sonoma County, CA) so if I were to have a shop I might just use that. "Go local" is very popular around here so it's wise to include something "local" in your business name if possible.

    Although, "FABRICADABRA!!" makes me smile too.

    Y'all are welcome to steal my company name ideas as long as you promise to open the shop near me! LOL

    i don't have any intention of opening a store! whew! i wonder what "little old ladies" would think! the name IS a little edgy.

    I would like to open more of a quilting studio more a place to learn how to quilt rather than sell product so I would call it The Quilters Studio of Learning

    Absolutely love "The Stitch and Bitch Store"! Talking about names reminds me of a famous bar in a Washington DC suburb named The Library. When someone called an office, the person had always gone to the Library. It was very popular with the lawyers in the area.

    I lived in a small town in KS & there was a combo gun/fabric store. Think about it... it's perfect! DH can go look at guy stuff & you can fumble fabric to your heart's content!

    I used to be in a small, casual sewing circle & we called our "meetings" "Stich & Bitch" sessions! True therapy... friends, fabric & food!

    We have a bar here in town by that name... the college kids love it! When their folks call & ask them where they've been, the can honestly say "The Library"!!!
