people who found out I "sew" and asked me to do alterations and get offended when I say "no

They are the ones asking and they got an answer is the way I see it. Anyone that asks are the ones that expect what they want to be given to them. They act like the victim when denied. Don't fall for it.

The same with me even though I also have my yarn and needles for knitting, crochet, and counted cross stitch it is still my sewing room with 2 machines set up to quilt.

I sew garments and home dec. I also both piece and quilt my own projects. I sew for others on a fairly regular basis, but it is generally for charities. I end up doing a lot of crib sheets and pack and play sheets since my Bernina serger has a fantastic “elasticator” foot. I don’t get wound up when someone asks me to mend; I just tell them I don’t do that, and they should look for a local alternations shop. I have no guilt about it at all!

Not many people understand the labor intensity a quilt top requires. Had quilting is very time consuming but beautiful and soft . Long arm quilters can charge up to $200 and no one blinks an eye. I just say my quilts are for family and cannot be ordered.
