A Cool Niche: Quilting for Spanish Speakers with Lina Owen.

Quilt Pattern Writing Course alumni, Lina Owen, is narrowing her niche and it’s so cool! Lina’s first language is Spanish, and she has seen and felt the void of Spanish quilt patterns and quilting classes. Through her creative business, Lina is providing for quilters who wouldn’t normally be able to quilt because of a language barrier.
It can be scary to narrow your niche, but it really is the best way to grow your business. It’s also a great way to have a business you are passionate about. 
See what amazing things are coming up with Lina Owen in the Craft to Career Podcast.
