For you, absolutely not.  For others -- perhaps somebody who doesn't even 
*own* a sewing machine let alone know how to use one -- maybe.  Making a 
profit isn't a bad thing so long as you're up front about it ... it's when 
somebody blows smoke up your butt about how much work is involved making a 
shift boot and then claims to be using nothing but the finest quality leather 
when in fact it's really cheap "naugahyde" that I take exception.  (I've no 
idea whether this is the case here or not, mind you, I'm just speaking 
strictly hypothetically.)
