Top 8 Quilting Niches to Sell Online

Blog October 3, 2019

Quilting has become more and more popular over the years and with this popularity has come large opportunity for the entrepreneurial quilter to make a successful business.

Deciding on the right quilting niche for you to start selling in is imperative and will take some research. We have put together our top ten quilting niches as a guide to what is possible;

1. Made To Order. Making quilts for people that know what they want is a lucrative niche, as these people already have exactly what they want in their head and are willing to pay to get the result they are looking for. This niche can be broken down into smaller niches, such as, using memorabilia to make a quilt or providing quilted products for bedrooms only.

2. Pet Quilts. The pet industry is enormous and the money spent on pets each year is staggering. People are very willing to spend large amounts of money on their animals so suggesting specialty quilted items such as sleeping mats, coats or travel rugs can make for a profitable business. Think about other opportunities within the pet market such as individualizing the quilt with the animals name or some other shape the quilt to fit the animal.

3. Aged Care. As people get older and their needs change from home products to maybe hospital or nursing home products. The introduction of special needs quilts is a niche. Hospital beds are thinner than normal beds, so a caring family would be very willing to undertake whatever was necessary to make their family member comfortable.

4. Wheelchair quilts. People in wheelchairs suffer from the hard surface of the chair and a quilted blanket made to measure for the wheelchair could make all the difference. When thinking of wheelchairs also think about carry bags that could be secured to the chair or arm rests, etc. These could also be made to measure and produced in startling colors to standout and give the wheelchair a bit of personality.

5. Holiday Quilts. Making quilts associated with special holidays, Easter, Christmas, Halloween, Passover, etc. People tend to dress their homes for holidays so producing quilts with holiday themes meets the need of the customer.

6. Baby Quilts. Cradle and cot quilt sets have always been extremely popular so think of a twist to make yours standout such as, made to measure or individualized in some way. A new child is such a special event and nurseries are a very big part of getting ready with much thought going into the decorating and design.

7. Baby Quilted Sleeping Bags. Babies need portable sleeping bags so they can sleep comfortably where ever they happen to be. Warm strong and washable are the things to think about in this category.

8. Using One Type of Fabric. Being known for producing quilts made from one type of fabric is another niche. For instance, silk or second hand kimono fabric. The emphasis in this niche is to be the expert on a particular fabric which people want to have quilts made from.

We hope these quilting niche ideas have started you thinking about the possibilities of starting your own quilting venture and have stirred your imagination to come up with some of your own that inspire you to create a business that you will be proud of and will allow you to quilt to your hearts content.
