    I live in a very rural area. I made this quilt, custom for a lady that told me last week "she just couldn't afford it right now". Again, her attempt to get me to lower my price AFTER she knew the price when she ordered it back in August.

    No, she did not lose her job, she is very well secure with money, but she "tried" to get my price way down. I already took $25 off for her.

    Anyways, my mailman loves John Deere. I stopped him today, and he bought my quilt for more than the other lady would have! YAY! He paid CASH too!

    So, I got lucky this time! From now on, I get a non-refundable deposit and a signed contract.

    Whew! Thank-you all for your understanding and words of advice in my previous post. You all are just awesome!

    Very cool! It sounds like your mailman was in the right place at the right time.

    Cheers, K

    Sounds like your mailman was the one who needed the quilt, not the person who ordered it. Glad he got it, and you got paid.

    Good for you! Some people are just not ready to pay for quality.
