What's Your Quilt Worth?

I just visited a blog,
and read a post, 
that had a link, 
that went to a blog, 
that had a fabulous view on
what a quilt is worth.
Loved it!

It's nice to think my quilts are worth something...
even if I don't plan to sell them.

  1. Carol,
    Thank you for this link!I always have a rough time pricing my quilts. Especially when folks 'roll their eyes' at my pricing. Thanks to this link...I now can 'justify' with authority my pricing. Thank You! Happy Easter! Beulah

  5. I have always struggled with pricing and selling anything I make. I tried crafts shows in the past and you can't make any money when you factor in not only your costs, but the table/space fee and the time you sit all day long and are lucky to sell one item. I gave the crafts shows up years ago. I'f I got even a nickel for every compliment....well I'd be a rich woman today, lol!

    People do not want to pay what your time is worth and they don't even want to pay the material costs. We are raised in such a discount sale mentality of a world that a true artist or crafter cannot make a living unless they have a huge name (celebrity status). So I make for me and give gifts. If someone wants to buy I do give them a realistic price and I never hear from them again. They think I am taking advantage. It's they who are trying to take advantage though.

    So I create and have fun for myself and no one else. I do think the posting was interesting Carol.
