    I have been asked to make several table cloths with embroidery on them. The embroidery is a 5x7 design with 9 color changes and has 55,519 stitches.
    I know I need to cover the cost of the fabric and that is where I get stuck. I have no idea what I would charge for the rayon thread I would use as well as the time spent on the machine.
    I don't want to rip anyone off but I also don't want to donate all of my time and the wear and tear on my machine.
    Can anyone help me out?

    A fair price for quality work is $1 per thousand stitches unless you are doing this as charity.
