Thank you so much for offering this service! I have just reviewed your designer area on the website. I am so impressed! I am doing this with you, not so much for the folding and copying as for your distribution. All my local quilt stores love your patterns! It's very exciting to be able to step right into this without having to wade through all the channels of marketing on my own.

Again, thank you!

By bringing many small designers under one roof, we can offer a wide selection (currently over 10,000 patterns from over 250 designers) to distributors, catalog companies, shops, and retail customers. We sell our patterns to 11 distributors and catalog companies across the United States (list available upon request).

We have an aggressive marketing program, dominant web/social media presence, and sell over 8,000 patterns per month.

We offer our designers many additional design opportunities throughout the year as we work with many fabric and other companies to create designs to compliment their product lines. Most of these companies provide free designer samples.

We offer two options for our designers and you can combine the two options if you wish:

Print On Demand

Designers send us their pattern files and we print on demand as the orders come in. No inventory costs are incurred by the designers, they no longer need to print, fold, stuff, take orders, ship, or track the sales tax. We pay our designers royalties when we sell the patterns but the designer retains the copyright.

Downloadable ePatterns

More than 50% of our online orders are for downloadable patterns. Customers love the instant gratification. Designers provide the pattern pdfs, we do the rest. ePatterns are only sold at retail price.

The first step is for you to email us pictures or a link to your website so that we can see your patterns and provide feedback. You can contact our publishing department at info@quiltwoman.com. If we are interested, we will ask for one or two patterns to look at for quality. If we think your patterns would be a good fit for our company, we will email you a contract which should answer most of your questions.

Optional Services for Designers

If the thought of doing the whole design process on your own seems a little daunting, we are here to help. QuiltWoman.com is offering the following additional services to our designers due to many requests for assistance. These services can help us together achieve the best quality patterns as efficiently and quickly as possible. This can translate to increased royalties for you. Please take advantage of any and all of these services as needed for any of your patterns that we have accepted.
