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?
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!
