I came across this post this week, and it struck a chord with me.
Sam Hunter, at Hunter’s design Studio runs through how to price a quilt. She is adamant about defending “our” work. First, she helps to break down the cost of a quilt, both in time and then in materials. She offers a formula for how to estimate yardage used in a project. And then, she talks about pricing your time. She is eloquent and thoughtful about breaking it down, and helps to map out how we can/could all talk about our work with people who are not familiar with the needle arts.
What I like about the post the most is that Sam is passionate about her point, but she is not militant. She has a well laid out discussion, but it is not an argument. She is a professional, talking about her work. Thank you for the post Sam.
