pricing question for pros
I interviewed today at a designer's workshop in the garment district in NYC. I answered the ad asking for someone to do hand finishing on men's suits almost as a lark, to see what they would say. Just as background, this is my second career and while I've been sewing lifelong, I've been sewing for money (and very little of it) for only about two years.
Anyway, I brought a few samples and was really unprepared for the response I got, which was that I had the skills they needed and they want a piece price. Eek! Help, what do I tell them? Has anyone here ever worked in this kind of setting? I haven't a clue what to do.
