It’s time for the tide to change, and I’d like you to help me do this. We quilty gals and guys need to stick together. We are the keepers of our worth, and we have to claim it as a team for all. We absolutely MUST have each others backs. Every time one of us gives up a quilt for far too cheap because “I don’t need the money” or “I already had the fabric” or “I made it from scraps” we are perpetuating the cycle of having our work undervalued FOR ALL.
Yes, I know that we can’t triple our prices overnight and expect the market to bear it. But we CAN educate our buyers on what goes into our work, and we CAN let them know just how good the deal is. And I think if we start doing this, our prices will go up and we’ll start seeing our work respected – which will help our prices go up… which will increase the respect some more… and so on.
So go spread the word. Let’s do this. Because truly, we are SO worth it.
