I have been approached by a local quilt shop to help with some quilting. The situation is that they had been taking in quilting but recently their machine is having some mechanical problems and they've got a back load. They may end up sending out all of the quilting eventually. I've been offered a percentage of the quilting charged. I am a newer longarmer in our area and haven't built up a large customer base yet. There are several longarmers in our area that are always busy. The last thing is the shop owner is a friend of mine.
My question is, if the quilting fee were to be split, what would be a reasonable split? What have been your experiences with quilting for a shop? I don't think this is something I want to do long term unless it is profitable to me but don't mind helping out in the short term. Any advice is welcome!
