    New to Quilting Business - Need friendly advice!

    I recently made my dream come true - I started my own wholesale company based in the USA selling batiks! I grew up in Indonesia and my family was involved in the garment industry. I remember her telling me that back in the day she knew she wanted to make garments and she actually taught herself how to sew. With her help, I was able to establish relationships with manufacturers back home and after many months of late nights (they were at the other side of the world) communicating with them, I was able to start my own company specializing in Batik fabrics.

    I honestly need some advice on how to proceed next. Didn't realize that marketing is a very important part of running a business and I don't know where to start. My mother told me that I should try and find sales rep to represent my lines.. but no luck so far!

    Do any of you have any advice for me? Any help will be greatly appreciated I'm really excited about this great opportunity but I'm also scared as well!

    Congrats on starting your own business. Not sure how a forum of quilters can help you with marketing strategy though.

      Welcome to the forum.

      We are all just quilters here, not business owners. I'm not sure what kind of help we would be.

      And just so you know, this is not the place for you to try to market your business, as this website is owned and maintained by Missouri Star Quilt Company, and your fabric sales are considered direct competition of their business.

      T - is it TRUE?
      H - is it HELPFUL?
      I - is it INSPIRING?
      N - is it NECESSARY?
      K - is it KIND?

        I think a good forum to try would be over on Etsy. You could get tons of help over there.

          Perfect, thank you - I'll try etsy!
          I didn't mean to advertise as I don't sell retail. I apologize regarding this.
