The answer to Why so much

February 27, 2016

People ask me all the time how much it costs to make a quilt. We talk a little about their project and then I give them a quote based on their project. They are stunned and ask, “Why so much?” People are used to getting slave labor quilts at walmart for next to nothing. They seem to think personally designed quilts should also be priced on a slave labor pricing scale.
Quality work, in a first world country, is priced at a comparable cost to other quality goods purchased in first world countries. Quilts are time consuming, skill laden, original works that require time and expertise. When you commission a quilt you are paying for the years of experience and personal dedication to learning and practicing specialized skills. If it were easy everybody would do it.
Just something to consider.
Thanks for listening. 🙂
