I do not want to get my posting deleted so I will not mention specific shops or companies. I need help understanding though. Many of the 12 month BOMs and even a couple of 13 month ones are running from $30 to $40 not including start up of at least $30. I am thinking of one in particular that is a wool BOM in this price range. I would like to do it and I think my skill level may be right for the project but I am having a difficult time justifying the cost. Is there really $40 worth of wool in each packet? Does it make that much of a difference to choose one's own fabrics? Specifically wool.
Does anyone have any insight on this? I am not trying to cast apsersions - I am just trying to understand what else goes into the pricing on these projects and whether or not it is worth it to maybe just purchase the pattern and begin collecting fabrics rather than doing a BOM.
