Don't even get me started on the random strangers who seem to think I'll just drop everything and spend hours of my free time and my materials drawing their wife/husband/dog/cat/monkey/houseplant for free just because they're so gosh-darn special.
If you want a drawing from me, my minimum price is $200.00. And no, I will not make an exception for you.
My quilt guild just had a show. A man came up to the ticket sale desk and said he wanted to buy a quilt. A big one.
One lady at the table said, 'Are you aware that for the bed-sized quilts in this show, there's hundreds of dollars of materials in them? Not to mention dozens and dozens of hours of working time?'
'I just want to buy a cheap one,' he replied. Apparently he thought that if he explained that, someone would sell him a quilt for 10% of what she spent on the materials....
I told the ladies (out of his earshot) that they should have told him to go to Walmart.
At my sister's church, a man suggested that the ladies of the church should make quilts for the needy. One of the ladies suggested that, instead, they could make a top-quality quilt and raffle it off to buy blankets for the needy. He just couldn't figure out why the women wouldn't want to donate hours and hours of time and hundreds of dollars of materials, to give a quilt to someone instead of a $35 blanket.
