It sure has been quiet – but I’ve been busy

Over the last several weeks, I’ve been taking a class offered through the American Crochet Association – called Crocheting for Profit. This has been a REAL eye opener, especially after the two less than stellar experiences at the craft fair. What I’ve learned so far through this class is that I’m really not charging enough! Imagine that. There is a lot of discussion about making a “fair wage” for your handcrafted items and I totally agree with that. But yet at the same time, how difficult it is to compete with someone who charges basically for materials and a few bucks in their pocket or the cheap mass-produced stuffed animals that you can buy at Walmart.
