I have caught up on the Road Home Along Row along and I’m doing DENMARK!!
Now that I’ve seen the list of participants I might wait and do some of the rows, like NC and other states we’ve lived in….?? we’ll see.
I finished 3 more mini ohio star blocks, though I’m not loving the 3rd on in row 1, but I’ll keep it for now.
I also got a Tula pink FQ bundle from massdrop recently!
Now recently I read an article online that pretty much bashed massdrop and I just wanted to add my 2cents. I understand that the prices are lower so the fabric designer gets less per yard, but then they get it x 50 or 40!
-I’m comparing it to how I sell patterns online.
On craftsy I sell them usually for $9 and yes, after paypal, I get close to $8 I guess. Then I sell patterns on connecting threads and there I get about half the price, what I’m “paying for/losing” is their customer base, who buy the patterns.
Then I deal with quiltwoman.com also who sells whole sale and depending on who she sells it to, I earn less than $1 to a few $ per pattern, but wholesale; stores etc. have to buy several patterns at a time!
So, since I’m sort of “new” at selling patterns, I will say that I often earn about the same per month on each place!
So to me I’ll take any money from anywhere it comes….
Another thing, is that I live in the country and any quilt store is 45 min away and loading up 4 kids in the car to go up there and then paying $12 per yard plus then gas, lunch etc. it’s NOT happening…..
So I LOVE buying online
Hope you get my point, I’m not bashing back the article I read, just saying my opinion and saying that I don’t feel bad ONE bit when I shop online incl massdrop.
And another online place I love of course is Connectingthreads!
I’m working on a secret project with these yummy fabrics!
wait and see
