Hey all you fabulous crafters!
Yes been a bitand I'm in the shadows and have watched quietly some come and some go🥺
Quite amazing to see the wonderful work but I have noticed a fall off in this last few year with the shut down of some states...
I have a question?
Are you bringing your prices down or keeping the same as of 2020?
I personally have gone up as to the higher cost of (everything) and see no slow on demand... quality is high priority but given the list as of lately I see a turn down in quality of supplies. How do you measure quality of what your putting out and quality of supplies?
Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them........http://www.candcupholsterydesigns.com

I haven't lowered my prices in response to the pandemic.  My time is worth every penny of the 4+ decades I've spent in the needle trades.  I don't "discount" my time because time is a finite commodity. 

My biz sucked wind for 4 mos. in early 2020.  But it rebounded nicely about July '20.  I'm as busy as I wish to be now.  FWIW, I have have never "gotten in over my head" with respect to excess overhead, and in fact, I have prospered under the current pandemic.  Would more tradesmen enjoyed te same benefit!
