I am new here, and relatively new to quilting, about a year. I have used my friend's long-arm and it comes pretty easily to me. My quilts look really nice when I am finished. I hasten to add that I have just been doing loopy stuff, or waves, or jigsaws. I have done some simply shaped flowers, too, just playing. Question: If I bought a long-arm, would I be able to make any money doing quilt-tops for people since I still do simple stuff? I know that every long-arm person I talk to has a waiting list of a few months in my area, and it seems like many people on here do, too, but I don't know if they are all experts.
And I don't mean I would need to make tens of thousands, of course; I really want to know if you have to be an expert at all sorts of designs to get paid for this.
Thank you for any advice, suggestions or info. I wouldn't be asking but I want to buy a long-arm and I would have to help pay for it with some work.
