I found an interesting online discussion that applies to the sewing and quilting that we love to do. It pertains to the cost and pricing of items to be sold. I, like many of you, have been asked to make something for someone when they see a great quilt or bag that you have made. It's kind of a sticky situation, because they generally don't have any knowledge of the cost of materials and the time that it takes to make something of any quality. I think that often, the textile arts and needlework are seen as a hobby only, not something of great artistic value. Maybe it's thought of as something that we do in our "spare time", not understanding that for many people, it is an art and source of income.
Here's the discussion that triggered these thoughts, and I would love to know what you think!
