I thought this article would be of some interest to board members. We should be so lucky!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
holey wow If i could just get $7.00 for one of my pieces of art. amazing but she is so right the amount of time we invest into our works never gets appraicated in our sale price. I am so happy for her.
People do not realize the time put into our projects. They think ypu should sell them for the price of materials plus a bit more for labor.
This has been posted before, FYI and the woman who made this quilt discussed it here.
Anything item can be sold if you have a buyer that wants it. I don't get paying that much for a quilt but then I don't understand items selling at auctions for millions of dollars. The Chinese vase that sold for 59 MILLION a few weeks ago was so absurd it made me angry and I'm one that never cared what people spent their own money for.

Even if we only sold it with the price structure that you suggest, in Australia, that would be $600 - and I don't think that this sort of thinker would want to spend more than $50.Originally Posted by katiebear1
