Hmmmmmm......I need some feedback from you all. I am debating not doing anymore commission work. In case you are wondering just what I do, the answer is pretty much anything, but mostly I quilt tops for people and make t-shirt quilts. And I earn a good amount of money at it.....enough to pay for my family's summer vacation and Christmas expenses so it is not an easy decision to make.
But here's my problem, the vast majority of the commission work I do is artistically not very interesting to me. I do it and I do it well but it's not what I would call fullfilling. I went back to work full time during the day so quilting time is more limited now.
And I am interested in expanding my workshop teaching beyond the local quilt shop circuit and start doing trunk shows and workshops at guilds......I really like teaching and my students have alot of fun. But I need more time to develop this before it would be a financially viable activity.
So what to do? Suggestions? I would love to hear your thoughts.......in the meantime, no posting is complete without a photo. Enjoy!
