I was looking at a local website, and the prices people have for nice
looking antique quilts is $30. One person has the following listed for brand new, made to order quilts:
I spend more than that on fabric!!! How do you make a profit selling these commercially? I don't sell my quilts, but if I did, I guess no one would buy, because my prices would be off the charts compared to that!! Right now I am doing a big mariner's compass/multiple sized stars/nighttime kind of quilt. NO WAY would I sell for 55-75. Even if the fabric was free, I would be making less than minimum wage. Please explain to me why someone sells their work so cheaply.
This post isn't intended to insult anyone that does sell their quilts at a low price. I think we are artists and our time and art should be appreciated.
