    Hitomi got a reaction from Brenni in Looking for Quilt Stores on Oahu   
    Anyone know of any any big quilt stores on Oahu, Hawaii?  I am going to Honolulu for the weekend (40 class reunion) and thought I would try getting my Hawaiian Sunbonnet quilt pattern in a few stores there.  I know of some fabric stores, but I am looking for quilt stores.  My new quilt pattern has been selling here in Kona ( I have had reorders from the stores here) so I thought since I was going to Honolulu I should try it there. Any idea who I should contact?  Babara, you know of any?

    I just did a T shirt quilt and charged $15.00 per shirt, plus the cost of fabric (probably 10 to 12 yards) and cost to quilt it.  I used over 5 yards of stabilizer and paid $2.41 per yard for it.  I spent a whole day to make it up, and another to quilt it, bind it and put an embriodered label.  I ended up giving it to her for $350.00.  I think that was a deal. You can't give away your service and time.  I look at this way, When I hire a cleaning lady to come  clean my house, she charges me $25.00 an hour.  I pay her $100.00 for 4 hours.   I am certainly worth as much as my cleaning lady.  What we do is an ART.  I think we are under paid for what we do.

    Hitomi got a reaction from Joan did it in My first pattern I designed   
    Here it is, my first pattern I designed.  I didn't know designing and writing a pattern was so hard.  But this is the final.  It's done and in our local quilt store.  Gotta get it in the other quilt stores around Hawaii, and maybe mainland.... It's the Hawaiian Sunbonnet Sue, I call it Aloha Sue & Aloha Sam.  It's very easy to put together, if anyone one wants to order a pattern, email me
     
    I'm so proud of it, LOL!
