    John Flynn's daughter sells laser cut kits, both pre-cut and custom. I don't know how well they sell but you might check her prices. http://www.flynnquilt.com/#

    If you are thinking about a local business, you might check with quilt stores and guilds and ask if they see a market for it. I know a local quilt store cuts fabric (for free) for one of the elderly quilters. I agree that mailing fabric back and forth would drive the cost way up.

    I looked into it. Zero interest.

    I don't think I ever said I was going all out in a business. I'm looking how to price cutting for other locally that have asked me to do so.

    Guess I pretty much just want to recoup some dollars on wear and tear of dies and machine and certainly on the mats used to cut.

    Even though some would not pay someone else to cut for them many would and in my area with many quilters being older, or those with medical problems who love to quilt or those who choose not to invest in a machine and dies are more than willing to pay someone else to cut for them.

    And I'm willing to do so but won't do it for free since my time is valuable and the use and replacements of mats and dies should be compensated in some fashion.

    Yes it does. Thank you.

    Have a price in mind but wanted to see if it was in line with others that do the same.
