I have just recently started quilting for others. I played with my machine for almost a year just doing my own tops, and some that belonged to family. It was great practice. I don't do anything fancy, just side to side pantographs. So far everybody that I've quilted for has been pleased with both the quilting and the prices. I admit I offer "cheap" prices because I feel my work is far from perfect. The only reason I'm second guessing myself is because the lady that taught me most of what I know about quilting says I should go up on the cost. I think with the way the economy is, if I start raising the cost I won't have very many customers, and I'm being paid to do something I absolutely love.
I'm interested to know what other non- longarm quilters is paying for this service. (Remember nothing custom, just side to side pantographs.)
