I personally believe that I am charging enough.
I was concern, when another longarmer approached me at the show
And said that, the reason for having so many quilts at the show must of
been because I was not charging much. I do give a quote before I start
The range goes from, basic overall, large meandering, simple pantos, advance
overall pantos, freehand, combining 2 or more pantos, panto and freehand borders, custom and heirloom. Sense I started I have had only one person
not happy. The reason she wasn’t happy was she forgot to mention to me
That she wanted ecru instead of cream. Before I started quilting for others
I did send friends and relatives to take some of my tops to the quilters in this area.
I wanted to know what they did and for how much. Some only do pantos, some do freehand only another one computerized quilting (she is great) so I do send people to her that want total perfection. I charge by the yard
for for simple quilting. I start at $25.00 if they bring batting if not, $25.00 +
what ever the going prize for batting at the quilt shop + 20% for me getting it.
Then it does go higher depending on the intencity of work. For custom I start at $38.00 if they bring the batting. I do give my regulars, 30% off coupon
on their next quilt after 3 tween to king quilts, not to be use on, freehand or custon quilting. I do donate quilting to my guild for charities and fundraising.
I think this brings good will and clients when they see what I do. I love quilting. You guys and gals are the best. I know we usually end up doing more than we should. I take pride on what I do. I keep learning from all of you.
Please excuse my rambling.Did not like the comment this woman made and wanted to make sure she is not right.
My DH said just to let it go.
But you all know more than I do. You guys and gals are the best.
