    I was thinking things like flax seed would be more expensive then rice. I had tried oatmeal but really didn't like that. I'll take a look at the other link. I'm not caught up on things and struggling to keep my concentration...very annoying. I had a major disappointment over the weekend (not the Craft Fair) so I've been a bit out of it. The last two days I've been cleaning up a storm because it helps to work out the anger and hurt and the almost constant conversations in my head

You'll have to test your market and see if it can support that price. Congrats on the success, and hopefully you can see an increase in activity for next year.
    Good idea about pictures. I do have a pic of the t-shirt quilt that was made from a persons pet who passed away. It had turned out really cute :-). I've been listing those lap quilts as between $150-$175. The other thing I've pushed a little when they balk at the price is to offer lessons on doing it themselves. That seems to have generated a little interest too. We'll see what happens.
