A very complete and interesting article on the real cost of quilts, with references to  handmade.

Well, maybe they need to know the real cost of handmade.

Discussing with a friend expert on handmade and quilts, we identified two key points which need to be further discussed. The first one, the target audience, because not everybody will be able to afford handmade products; the second one, how to raise awareness about the need of changing the mass consumption way of life crazily developed on 20th century.
