Your friend should charge at least minimum wage for her time as well as the full cost of materials and P&P.

She does beautiful work, so hopefully she will charge enough to make it worthwhile.

Seriously, so many people only consider the cost of materials and don't consider how long it took to make something. As a result, crafts such as knitting and quilting are very undervalued in our society and don't get the recognition (and $$) that they deserve.

Totally with you on that one! I was in Hobby lobby last weekend and heard a woman exclaiming that she "could make that much cheaper", well, maybe. Then again, it might just look like she made it "cheaper", you know ;0)

Anyway, I'll remind her to count her time in the making of the items. I really do hoope she can make a go if it!
