The Business of Longarm Quilting

How Much Are You

Your Customer Worksheet
Next to your quilting machine and your thread collection, what is the most important piece of equipment in your studio? If you answered, Your Customer Worksheet, you are correct! These pieces of paper are very, very IMPORTANT to you business.
In these articles you will be shown the important parts of a Customer Worksheet and why they are important. Many tips about running your business and the pricing of your quilting services are include in these articles.
As a bonus, the article, The Unhappy Customer - What to Do? is included in this collection. What DO you do if your customer is unhappy with your work? (and yes, this will happen!)

If you have been in the
quilting business for a while, you NEED this booklet. If you are a new
quilter, or thinking of starting a quilting business, you NEED this booklet!
The articles in this
booklet are excellent! In all of my beginner classes I tell my students
they need to get a copy of this booklet. By doing the "homework" that Cindy
suggests, you will save hours of frustration and more quickly achieve the goal
of making decent money from your longarm quilting business. The information that
is presented in this booklet will help quilters during their entire longarm
career, not just when they are starting out. In my opinion, the work Cindy did
in putting these articles together is a true service to the longarm industry. I
hope that everyone who hears about this booklet will take advantage of it,
because it really is helpful to ALL longarm quilters Thank you Cindy!
