Being a self-employed, professional quilt and fabric designer, that writes patterns and books some might assume that April and I are each earning a hefty income, able to fully support our families. Think again – if only all those creative daydreams were billable hours!

Scraps, Inc quilts by Amy & April


Making a living in a creative pursuit?

Our perspectives, and current situations are discussed.

 Abby Glassenberg of While She Naps, has some recent posts about fabric design royalties here and here. Definitely worth a read!

Finally, if you have a dream to make a name for yourself, we want to encourage you to DO IT! It’s so fun and fulfilling to work at something that is a love and passion and not just a 9-5 job, and be available to the little people in our lives when they need us. Have a question? We are always happy to share our experience, when asked. Just ask!
