    After seeing and hearing quilters complain about binding, I'm thinking of offering a binding service locally. But, how to figure out the charge?

    Per running foot of bound quilt seems like a good place to start. What would you think of 15 cents per running foot? That would be $30 for a 50" by 50" baby quilt. Hmm, seems like too much. Maybe a dime per running foot, which would be $20 for that dimension baby quilt.

    Is there any other quilt binding service that anyone knows of?

    Thanks for helping me think!

    A friend paid me $100 to bind a quilt. Knowing it was way too much, I gave her a bunch of quilting equipment for the beginning quilting class we were taking together!

    I have no idea what to charge or how, obviously (well, she was the one who offered the price :shock: )....

    I am having a longarm quilter do the quilting part as well as half the binding for $50 (she will do the binding on the top by machine and I will handstitch it on the back) for her to do it all it would be done by hand she charges $120.

    It would really depend on whether or not you were doing hand-stitching or only machine-binding, I'd think.

    Interesting idea. I'm perfectly capable of doing the binding myself, so I think $20.00 would be fair but to someone who can't or doesn't have time to it could very well be worth a lot more.
