I just joined this website and group so I am a newbie to this! I have sewn all my life and am now retired and can sew to my heart's content. I recently joined up with a friend who is selling purses. I have designed and refined the patterns for the purses and have now started sewing them. She will start selling them when we have more inventory. I am the worker bee in the "sweat shop". Now I have to decide how much I want to get paid. I want it to reflect my talent and worth but I don't want to price myself out of a job or her out of business. Her "business" is just new and sort of informal. Answers please and advice ASAP! I look forward to hearing from you.
