    Does anyone do embroidery?

    Do you sell your work? How do you know what to charge for your work? I should specify I mean machine embroidery.

    At least double what it cost you to make, plus petrol costs and wear and tear on the car if you have to transport it anywhere. Add a percentage for the cost of the market stall if that is where you are selling it.

    Have a Janome 1100 embroidery machine and enjoy doing it for friends and family but don't charge. But have heard hooping fee should be $5. and then the stitch count considered (per 1000 stitches).
