Put your sewing and quilting knowledge to the test with these unique and fun sewing games. There are both business and design games.
As I was looking for games to give for Christmas, I came across a sewing board game. I had never thought to research sewing games, and I didn’t even know they existed. What a fun idea for a game!
Once I started looking and researching, I found 12 different quilting and sewing games, and now I want to try every single one. Some of these are for adults, and some of these are for children and adults. Some of these are big and intensive games, and some of these are small and perfect for travel.

You are the owner of a distinguished tailoring business. Build a tailoring business that creates gowns and frock coats for the Grand Ball.

Prêt–à–porter is an economic strategy game in which you will manage a company trying to succeed in the world of fashion. The game plays out over a year consisting of 12 rounds (months), divided into 4 quarters, each ending with a fashion Show.
In a Quilt Show, "quilters" collect fabric cards, which can be exchanged for block tiles. The quilters race the clock as they amass block tiles that they can combine into one or more quilts at a time. They can mix block tiles of a single color or a single pattern to make a quilt. Three times during the game, when the clock reveals it is time for a quilt show, quilts are entered and prize money is awarded. At game's end, the quilter with the most prize money wins!
Each player gets a sewing board and three strings in three colors. Flip over one of the challenge cards and then...Ready, set, SEW! Working as quickly as they can, players race to thread their strings through their board so it matches the picture on the card. The first to finish wins!
To create a beautiful quilt, however, requires effort and time, but the available patches just do not want to fit together. So choose your patches carefully and keep a healthy supply of buttons to not only finish your quilt, but to make it better and more beautiful than your opponent‘s.
In the game, each player works to create a beautiful, Americana-inspired patchwork quilt out of the available patches by placing them on their 9x9 game board, looking to avoid leaving any empty spaces.
This is a variation on Monopoly, produced by the DMC Corporation, who makes embroidery floss. This version is thread and needlecrafting themed. Instead of properties, players collect stitching techniques. All property cards also feature a stitch diagram for the design on the card.
The bazaar is bustling as Assam, the market organizer, inspects the rugs to determine which of them is the best. On a players turn, they turn Assam and roll a die to determine which rug space he moves to. If he lands on an opponent’s rug, you must pay them coins. Then the player places a rug in hopes that Assam lands on it during another player’s turn.
This is not exactly a sewing game, but all designs reminded me of quilt squares.
Players compete as artisans decorating the walls of the royal Palace of Dvora. By carefully drafting the correct Quantity and style of tiles, the most clever of artisans plan ahead to maximize the beauty of their work while ensuring they wasted no supplies in the process. As a tile laying artist, you have been challenged to embellish the walls of the royal Palace of Dvora.
Two and more players age 8 and up experience a whole new “patchwork”. Centered around a new mechanic where cards display the different puzzle pieces and a dice determines which of them to use, the players draw them on their sketchpad like player board. After three fast rounds, the new “patchwork” master is crowned.
This isn't a board game, but it's still a book of games and word puzzles.
