1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Pricing questions... on: March 19, 2006 01:52:35 PM
I learned to be tough about my pricing from my mom who did the craft fair scene for years (she made personalized christmas socks - all quilted and appliqued), baby stuff (like bibs and towels and whatnot) and all kinds of really beautiful knick-knacks. She always said that you should charge what you think it is worth PLUS 20%.

she was always really awesome to her customers but would politely take NO CRAP from people who said they could get "the same thing" for less.

Also, my boyfriend is a webpage designer. He has been instructed (after being far too generous a few times) that he should charge what he thinks he deserves TIMES THREE!

never sell yourself short.

8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Jesse's Flames clarification on: November 01, 2005 03:23:14 PM
Hi!
I'm making Jesse's Flames and I just got past the red line on the front.

I'm a bit confused about the EOR part once I switch back to the black.

When it says to decrease EOR does it mean to decrease on every knit row....or on every other knit row?

Help please!
