    I copied the URL and it doesn't work. There is no such link. And I can't find anything like that from their home page (deleting everything after .com)

    To make a live link, click on the icon of the world above the reply box before you copy or enter the URL.

    Good link, and as an accountant, and many times invloved in production costs, makes sense. But putting a price on your time, that is the catch.

    Members of my family is always telling me that I should try to sell quilts and earn money off my quilting. Never mind that it takes me forever to sew a quilt and that they are not perfectly made!
    So I just sent this great article around to them so they could understand better. My favorite comment was "when a quiltmaker makes a quilt more valuable than the market could possibly bear, the quilt is usually destined to be a labor of love rather than paid labor"

    The last quilts I gave as gifts made me quit for a few years. Broke my heart and really hurt my ego. Very emotional. I've decided to not let that get to me any more. The last ones were for babies but eventually went to the dogs and cats and then the trash. I spent a lot of time on the gifts because I also made diaper stacker to accessorize. I have since forgiven everyone for they know not what they did. Recently, I was asked by the receivers of those gifts, if I would make a couple more quilts and diaper stackers. I told them each quilt was going to be $250.00 and diaper stacker to match $350.00. I was being nice. When they asked why I reminded them how much time I had spent on the last ones (which were my choice for gifts) and money spent. The look on their faces were priceless. I informed them that I made the quilts and stackers out of love and they threw it into the trash. They actually were hoping I would just give the quilts to the receivers. I told them "I love you, Jesus loves them".

    Tess that is really sad. No one could blame you for feeling that way and good for you for expressing your feelings so well!

    Find out what sewing goes for in your city. You know, bridal gowns, alterations, mending, etc. In my area in 1991, it was $25 per hour. Now, 20 years later, it must be at least $30 to $35, wouldn't you say?
