So, Do You Sell Your Quilts? A Conversation with Marianne Fons - QNNtv.com
Today I was contemplating what to write. I haven't taken any pictures of my daily adventures but this morning I did happen upon this video. Since I am in the quiltmaking business, I found this information very interesting. I do this because I love it but the pay is a benefit. As you all know, I will not get rich doing this. The payoff is I get to get up everyday and do something I love.
As you listen to Marianne and Mary Fons, please notice several times in their conversation they mention low-ball pricing. The cost of fabric is climbing everyday. So yes, I consider their fabric costs low. For a queen to king size bed quilt the quilt top fabric, batting and backing will easily be over $300, plus labor and the cost of quilting.
In my opinion, you need to appreciate that quilt given to you is a gift of love. If you purchase a quilt, then treat it as fine art, and protect it from the elements that might damage it.
Have a great day and stay cool! Terry
