Many Planet Patchwork visitors own quilt-related businesses, whether they be quilt shops, mail order supply houses, or producers of specialty products. Some of these businesses have a presence in the "real" world and others are attempting to do business exclusively on the internet.
Regardless of the type of business they may be involved in, they are internet-savvy and can see the potential of the medium for marketing products and services. Planet Patchwork is cognizant of this potential and the interest of many of our readers in the possibilities that exist.
We have tried, therefore, to profile internet businesses and be on the lookout for resources which might be of value for our business-oriented readers. The Quilters' Business Resource Center will be dedicated to providing that sort of information.
Among the things you will find here are:
