Sewing & Quilting

Sewing & Quilting is an ebb and flow of American culture. We believe that and we follow that tide. With a name like Notions Marketing you would expect us to be top in all things notions and we are. Best assortment, best price, best in stock position and best ability to get it to your store fast!

Sewing & Quilting is a category that is the fabric of America, encompassing rich history, art and story. We feel that passion every day from the stores we work with and we take that passion seriously.

Knit & Crochet

We have lived and loved the knit & crochet category longer than any other craft category, as yarn and its related implements were part of the original mix of products we sold to Five & Dime stores in the 1930’s. Our product selection has changed dramatically but our commitment to this category has not wavered through these many years.

Convenience and selection is what drives our knit & crochet business. We stock key brands full line and we offer product depth which surpasses any distributor in the country. Strong vendor partnerships, many of which go back 40 years and more, provide you with early new product releases, exceptional pricing, strong fill rates and sales tools.

These strong partnerships are exemplified in key market brands which choose Notions Marketing as their sole distributor to the independent trade.

Whether you are an independent yarn shop or a general craft store with a yarn department, you will find Notions Marketing to be one of your most reliable and cost competitive sources.

Needle Arts

Needle Arts has seen its ups and downs but our commitment to success in this category has been constant. With over 9,000 unique items in the category, we are likely the largest single source of needle art supplies in the US! Whether you come here to enjoy our great everyday prices on DMC products or to have access to every kit produced by the top three needle art kit producers in the country, we are sure to exceed your expectations. Ask any existing Notions Marketing customer about us and they will start to tell you about our customer service. Our reputation for customer service is a key component of our company culture. We are here to be of service to the independent retailer and that pervades everything we do.

We know color is key to your buying decisions in this category so you will find images and/or color chips for every item within the category on our website.
