The Year of No

Anyone who knows me, that I sew, maybe you have something I made. Its only a matter of time for someone to ask me to make something for them, for someone else, to fix something etc. Of course people offer to pay etc. I have been happy to sew for other people for many years. But now, going forth, I have to say no, sorry. I would be happy to help you make something. I have precious little spare time. I don't even have a quilt for myself, I have a huge pile of my clothes I need to hem. I have projects that are tucked away, not even started. The truth is the actual cost to make someone something would be usually higher than anyone willing to pay, I haven't priced things as they should in the past, but for example it takes an entire day to make a diaper bag, but in the past I only charged a little more than supplies. So, I am still going to make gifts, because I love to make things for people, I love giving gifts I have created especially for someone. I think about that person as I make it, how they will use it etc. And I will still make things to sell. But please don't ask me to fix something or make something for a friend.
