Abby Glassenberg of While She Naps has a great discussion about what designers actually get paid for fabric lines over at her blog. Some of you may remember the panel at QuiltCon ini 2013, which got a little testy when people asked them what they could reasonably expect for payment for a line. As a matter of fact, they didn’t answer the question, and implied that it was rude to ask.
Sam Hunter at Hunter’s Design Studio also has something to add, as part of the “We Are $ew Worth It” campaign.
I wrote a post myself on this subject a while ago, The Problem with Free Milk: Giving Away Your Quilt Work for Free. Check out the other posts under the “Value Your Work” category.
