Wanted: Quilters who work full time (8 to 9 hours/day minimum) outside the home, do not own sponsored blogs and absolutely can not finished a twin size quilt in one week (let alone a month) and can not bake a Black Forest cake from scratch if their life depended on it.
Where are the quilt bloggers who don’t get free fabric from stores, manufacturers or designers, and fabric cutters in exchange for endless positive reviews? If you’re one of the 3 people who haven’t yet won or been given a fabric cutter, please raise your hand. Who hasn’t left their day job to start an Etsy store?
Am I alone? I feel like I am. Perhaps it’s just the world of quilt bloggers where I truly feel lost.
I praise tools and equipment because I like them and they work well. I post fabric purchases and mention fabric shops because they have a great selection, customer service and fast shipping. I’m not afraid to throw rotten tomatoes at places that jerk me around. I’m not afraid to tell it like it is when something goes wrong or a product is crap.
To be honest, I don’t have sponsors because I’m not popular and don’t have enough followers, which is fine with me. Sometimes it’s really nice to not have a big popular blog because sometimes I just don’t have the time or energy.
Do you love your life despite the fact that you have very little time to quilt? Are you out there? I want to embrace you!
