    New to the site

    Hi everyone, my name is Caitlin and I am new to the site. I'm 19 and I have been quilting for the past 10 years. I have recently started trying to sell my quilts, but I am having a hard time getting off the ground. The most progress I have achieved is the creation of my own Facebook page which has received as much recognition as I have for my products :P Does anyone have any suggestions on how to help get me started and recognized?

    So happy to have finally joined this site!

    welcome from Oklahoma.
    Keep plugging away, you just have to remember that there are over a zillion quilter's in the world and they are all trying to SELL something these days! Quilts are no longer considered RARE, as they are found everywhere now, so that alone makes them, hard to sell. Quilts being mass produced in 3rd world countries for pennies are hard competition to beat as well!
    But if your workmanship is good, your designs original, and your prices fair market value, and you keep plugging away, you will get lucky sooner or later!

    Thank you for the advice. My prices are the same as they were when my grandma was selling her quilts and I find them to be very reasonable. Thank you all for the warm welcomes.
