  1. patheer says:

    I would name my fabric company “the ROOST”. After all, everyone who sews,quilts,plans and creates always needs to come home to ROOST and regroup !

  2. Briana D. says:

    I think… Rainbow Fantasy! I love rainbows and bright colors.

  3. robin says:

    Kitchen Sink Fabrics.

  4. Pingback: Introducing Terri Costa, a Back to School Sewer for Quiltmaker | Quilty Pleasures Blog

  5. Kate says:

    Mine would be Butterhill Needlework. Named after my grandparents house in NH

  6. Lynn Telke says:

    I thought of several ideas for a new fabric company but my favorites are Sew Much
    Fabric , Quilting Sisters, Scrap Basket, and Sew Creative.

  7. Henria O. says:

    My name would be “Bolts and Bundles”!

  8. Michelle O says:

    I’d call mine Edgewood Fabrics, since that’s the town I grew up in.

  9. Lisa Marie says:

    I would name a company PuddleJumpers and it would specialize in fabrics for children.

  10. Bev Gunn says:

    Also, I would like to have one called “The many colors of the seasons” for those who live where the seasons don’t have the gorgeous color changes of the area north of the Mason-Dixon line and east of the great plains!

  11. Bev Gunn says:

    Think I would have to call mine “scrap-aholics unlimited and no cure in sight!”

  12. Shelley says:

    I think I’d go with “Tiger Mountain Textiles” since I live on Tiger Mt.

    I thought about opening a fabric shop a few months ago–”Greenberry Street.”

    Mine would be Fabric Fantasies

  15. Pat V. says:

    I’d go with “Simple Stitches.”

  16. Linda E in AZ says:

    “Woven Perfection” might work for my imaginary fabric company.

  17. Heather Seibel says:

    Most of us probably craved the 64 box of Crayola crayons as kids. I think fabric and thread are the adult version of crayons! Because of branding and copyright issues, one couldn’t use that name, so I’d name my shop “Quilters’ Crayons”!

  18. Claudia says:

    Presenting the new line from “She Sews” (and I would be thrilled beyond description if Ricky Tims used some of it),
    or, morphing off of another entry “Hugs by the Yard”.

  19. Carol says:

    I’d go with Too Much Fun.

  20. Carol C. says:

    I would name my fabric company after the river near where I grew up — Stillwater Glen. Thanks for the opportunity!

  21. PJ says:

    I’d call my fabric company Blackberry Pond.

  22. Mary says:

    I would call my company “SEW SWEET”

  23. Caralyn Turner says:

    Keeping with the spirit of fun and creativity a line of fabrics should be “serendipity fabrics”.

  24. tina hatch says:

    I would name my collection Cozy Quilt, and the fabrics would all be a warm vintage and traditional prints and colors.

  25. SewLindaAnn says:

    My company name would have to be “Feeding Frenzy Fabrics” as that’s what it feels like sometimes when I say I’ve done enough and then I read a blog, or see a sale, or a color combination that I could never find before and then this new line or that new line…as you can see, it goes on and on!

  26. Angie says:

    T and A Quilts…for me and my mom, Terri and Angie (duh…what were you thinking when I said T&A???)

  27. Sheri says:

    I think I would call the Fabric Company Sweet Dream Fabrics. Fabrics that you would dream about and quilts you would dream under.

  28. Meredith says:

    Whenever I buy new fabric, I feel like I want to throw it on my bed and roll around in it like a puppy and wrap myself up in it. Additionally, I feel like my quilts are giving hugs to the people I love whenever they use them. So I think I would just call my fabric company “Huggable.”

  29. Deb G. in VA says:

    How about “Cotton Candy” or maybe “Quilter’s Eye Candy”?

  30. Nancy says:

    My dear little grandson couldn’t say Grammie, instead called me Mamaw and he still does at 14….so I will name my company Mamaw’s Material Haven.
    Love Red Rooster fabrics…their look and their feel.

  31. MarciaW says:

    In keeping with a farm trend, suggestion is Mama Cow Fabrics (MCF for short) =OR= Chick Fabrics.

    Imagination Fabrics – which can be used for anything you can imagine!!!!

    How about Galaxy Fabrics – they are out of this world! Thanks so much!
    And now you got me started: Powerhouse Fabrics; Full Steam Fabrics; Skedaddle Fabrics,… ok, I better stop now.

  34. Kristen says:

    My fabric name would be Meadowbrook…and oh the fabrics I’d create! :)

  35. Sally says:

    I loved all the names…some very creative ones.
    If I had a fabric company I think I would name it “Sew New” Fabrics

  36. My imaginary name would be “Make it with Fabric”. This also includes quilters, dress makers, decorating skills & etc. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  37. Martina says:

    I think I would name it “endless cotton dreams”!

  38. Bev Gunn says:

    Think I would call my fabric line Future Scraps as that is basically what all fabrics are! I have een a fan of Red Rooster fabrics for several years and love the whimsy of the designers who think more like magic fairies dancing in the dewy grass!

  39. Donna Amos says:

    My name would have to be “Fabricholics, Inc.” because we just can’t get enough fabrics.

    My fabric would be called Cottage Cove Fabrics! I love anything with a cottage, and we live on the cove, so that brings me right back home ;-) Thanks for such a generous giveaway.

  44. VickiT says:

    I think I’d name mine Vicki’s Hideaway Fabric Shop. I’d have a little corner where everyone could have coffee and hide out from the stress of the day and relax, and of course, give their latest secret how they get all their newest fabric purchases into the house without anyone seeing. Then they could go shopping for all their fabrics which, of course, they’re going to take home to ‘hideaway’ from their hubby to avoid the ‘how much did you spend THIS time’ questions. LOL

  45. Nancy D. says:

    How about “Sew Sweet Treats” ?

  46. Gwen says:

    My pretend fabric company would be named “Sew Fun Fabrics”

  47. Mary says:

    How about Misty Mountain Fabrics?

  48. Bev B says:

    I would name it The Ultimate Fabric Company.

  49. Antonia says:

    I just keep thinking up more names, I can’t seem to stop myself. How about “Masterpiece Fabrics”.

  50. Nicole says:

    Mine would probably be something like “Colie’s Creations” :D Cute fabric!

  51. Antonia says:

    How about Memory Lane Fabrics or Magical Memories Fabrics.

    Hmmmm. Threads to Dye for.

  54. Lorri says:

    How about “Happy Zone Fabrics”

  55. Barbara Waldrip says:

    well, If we have a red rooster, we need a “Little Red Hen”.

  56. Jan LaBeause says:

    SInce I live near Macon, Georgia, my company would be “Macon Sew Many Memories.”

  57. Jayne L. says:

    I think “Fabulous Fabrics” would make a fantastic name.

  58. Linda says:


  59. Helen says:

    My fabric company would be called “Got To Have It!”

  60. Charlotte Dudley says:

    I guess I’d name it after my quilting friends. When we get together to sew, we call it “Sew Therapy” :)

  61. leona says:

    Love the colors, my dream fabric company would be named “Sew Goods”.

  62. Lee Ann L. says:

    I am not good with coming up with names. How about “The Fabric Merchant” (or Mercantile). I don’t know. Like I said, not creative at all. :-)

  63. Barb Colvin says:

    ‘Love Fabrics’ because we do :)

  64. Kaye M. says:

    This may sound old-fashioned but I would call my fabric company “Yard Goods Fabrics”

  65. Kelly B says:

    I’d call it Bolt! (you have to have the exclamation point). It’s a fun play on words and it has multiple meanings. 1) Fabric comes on bolts–of course. 2) Don’t walk; don’t run… bolt to the store! 3) So excited about this new fabric it’s like being struck by a bolt of lightning… :D

  66. Madeline says:

    I also think “Add to Your Stash Fabrics” would be good.

  67. kathy h says:

    My fabric company would be called Whispering Fields.

  68. Madeline says:

    How about “Can’t Resist Fabrics”

  69. paskiaq says:

    I would call mine “More Fabric Please” :)

  70. Joanna says:

    My fabric company would be named would probably be named Heritage Fabrics because I feel a part of a community of sewers.

  71. DebrafromMD says:

    I would name the company Fantasy Fabrics.

  72. Debbie says:

    How about Jewel City Designs?

  73. Antonia says:

    I just thought of a better name than the last name I came up with , it’s “Confetti Fabrics” because there are lots of colours in confetti.

  74. Susannah says:

    Colorful cottons, etc.

  75. Paula G says:

    My fabric company would be called “Mother Hen & Her 3 Chicks”. Decades ago this was the CB handle we used when my mother, my sisters and I took a summer road trip to visit my aunt. It has stuck with us ever since.

  76. Antonia says:

    The name I came up with is “Daydreaming Fabrics”.

  77. Betty Simmons says:

    I think “Colorful Dreams” would be a great name…. There is lots of color and can reach a lot of dreams….

  78. Great topic! My fabric company would be named Ultimate Threads.

  79. Karlene says:

    I think a fun name would be “Whistles and Jelly Beans”. It’s a tad bit whimsical and reminds us of carefree fun days.
