- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I tell people up front that I am not the cheapest t-shirt quilter out there but I do NOT cut corners or "crank them out" with a cookie-cutter process. Each one is entirely custom and made with exacting attention to detail and craftsmanship. The binding is hand stitched in the traditional "show-quality" manner.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I usually ask that we have a consultation so I can see their materials and educate them about the process. I will give an estimate for labor and materials. I begin work after a 50% deposit and usually have a 3-5 week turnaround depending upon how backed up I am.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a trained graphic designer and have been sewing since I was a child. I am an active member of the Green Country Quilt Guild and have won awards and speak and teach professionally at guilds across Oklahoma.
