With hobbies such as quilting
gaining popularity, there is a demand for unusual and non-commercial-type
fabrics. Hand-dyed and hand-painted fabrics are in demand, especially
in pieces larger than 1 yard.
Hand created fabrics fetch
top dollar in quilting stores, which love to feature unusual fabrics for
quilters. Many colors and unusual patterns just cannot be found in commercially
made fabrics that most quilters must choose from. Hand created fabrics
are in extreme demand by quilters and quilt stores alike.
Your biggest market will be
the small quilting stores, which are most likely to carry prints from
small fabric businesses, which most hand created fabric businesses are.
Larger big box fabric stores usually only carry the fabrics their headquarters
order, and in quantities fabric artists just cannot meet.
You can also offer custom dyed
fabrics for quilters seeking a particular shade to match their project.
