Growing The Quilting Industry

Since our beginning, QuiltingHub has been devoted to helping our members and all of quilting expand worldwide.  As a powerful website used by over 400,000 quilters at a rate of over 1 Million page views a month; our insightful articles and member content has become a dominant force in the industry at achieving that goal. Join our team or view our open positions.

Our full member listings get high visibility in a powerful light, plus our training articles teach quilt shops, guilds, and all others in the industry how to grow quilting both inside and outside of the site.

Here is a brief list of some of sectors of the industry we have focused on since 2009:

Growing/Expanding The Quilting Industry


1. Quilt Shops

Most of our education has been centered around keeping quilt shops open and making them profitable. Some of the key education articles include:

  1. Tips On Growing Your Quilt Shop in Any Economy
  2. Quilt Shop Talk - Greeting New Customers
  3. Growing Your Quilt Shop With Classes For Young People
  4. Quilt Shop Owner Member Benefits
  5. Using The Quilter's Trip Planner
  6. Make Your Listing Stand Out
  7. Top 5 Ideas to Market Your Quilt Shop
  8. Get More Customers To Your Quilt Shop?
  9. Top 5: Get Repeat Customers Into Your Quilt Shop

Note: Quilt shops are added and edited by the quilters and shops, not QuiltingHub. Shops are then claimed (on their listing) and maintained by their owners or will be removed. Free shop listings (consisting of a name, address, and a point on the map) get little visitors. Quilters prefer upgraded member shop listings with nice photos and events in their calendar. Upgrading to a membership is only 27 cents a day. Endorsed by shops owners as the best value in the industry. View the benefits of membership now.
