If you plan on registering your name, check out the trademark and patent website to make sure you don't infringe on someone else's trademark or business name. (www.uspto.gov)

How about "Sew it all",  a take off of 'know it all.'

I have a marketing degree and the one thing that most people mess up on is the name of the business. One name suggestion for you all would be " SEW Sister SEW

It would have a catchy name. Also, see what other business in your area provide the same services you want, see if there is a need first, Check out the local Chamber of Commerce, they might be of help ( I do say this hesitantly- anyone that is a member always wants special favors and free service- don't fall for that)  

Think about what would make you want to come to your store?   Why should anyone for that matter want to come there? ( this is not being mean, this is to help you think).  Could you advertise your business with JoAnn's ? Would you want to offer sewing lessons to kids or grown ups - as one way to bring them in?  How do you plan to advertise the fabric? Will it be from books or ready to sew off the bolt?     What prices will you offer? Will you do this out of your home? 

Just a few things to think about..  I think your going to do well.
