Quilter Evolves from Home Business to Multimillion Dollar Corporation

by Mary Emma Allen on July 30th, 2007


Eleanor Burns, the quilter who started Quilt in a Day, the home business that has grown into an internationally recognized one, is featured in a story in the NC Times of San Marcos, CA, Quilt in a day owner builds business piece by piece.

“Although Quilt in a Day started out as a way for Eleanor Burns to support her family, it has evolved into a multimillion-dollar corporation in nearly 30 years.”

She writes quilting books, produces videos and has a show on PBS.  Quilters will enjoy reading her fascinating story (link above).

However, home business owners may find inspiration and ideas in Eleanor Burns’ story they can apply to their home business, whether it involves quiltmaking or something else.  It’s always encouraging to read the success stories of other home business owners.

Some of you may desire only a small home business while others may want to expand as Eleanor has. 

Here are some of her books:
