Thangles Fat Quarter Club: A smarter alternative to traditional BOM programs with better cash flow,
sample longevity, and it sells your store stock!

The advantages of this simple program are:

You sell a large quilt kit but because the customer is only buying a fraction of the fabric up front, it’s less
expensive for them to buy in.

The starter kit typically has large amounts of just a few fabrics.  You’ll probably have to special order some of
these fabrics but you sell them right away so you don’t have to sit on them.  The profit you make on the starter
kit more than covers the cost of the rest of the fabrics you are holding.  Everything from then on is pure profit.

The many different fat quarters used for the blocks can often come from your store stock.  You don’t need
much yardage of any particular FQ fabric and because there are so many different fabrics it’s possible to
substitute individual fabrics and still closely match your sample.

The return visits to buy the fat quarters build traffic. (They can’t spend money if they are not in your shop!) But
because the pattern came in the starter kit, there is no kitting!  You just sell fat quarters!

The timing is extremely flexible.  Depending on how many fat quarters are sold per visit and how often you
have your customers return, you can run the program either as a weekly summer traffic builder or monthly for
a year as an easy, low effort alternative to traditional block of the month programs!

Finally, your customers will love the program!  The costs and work are spread out over a manageable period of
time: they know they can finish the quilt!  And once you have the sample you can also sell complete top kits in
your shop, at shows, or on your website!
