    I like hand work. Don't think I would hire that done. Now if I had to do it by machine....I might hire someone to do that.

    My machine quilter does binding. I've only had her do one for me.
    You could talk to quilters in your area and she if you could offer the service to her clients. Also advertising in a comunnity newspaper.

    there is a person in concordia Mo. that does the quilting and binding you can supply the backing and fabric if you want but she charges like 45.00 and lower by size.

    My friend and i trade jobs, she puts on my binding, and i do some cutting for her..She gets the binding all ready to go,pieced and folded and pressed. my hands don't work to well with hand sewing..so this set up works for me.
    to pay for postage back and forth to someone,for putting the binding on,would be out of my price range..if she were local, i would do it. And if my friend doesn't have anything to be cut out, i pay her..20 or 25 bucks. she doesn't charge me, but thats what i give her anyways..so she can buy fabric too! ( i never make anything larger than a twin as a rule..she mostly does my baby quilts)

    I don't mind sewing on the binding. My mom is a long arm quilter and she has customers that ask her to stitch the binding for them. I am not sure what she charges to do it but when she was at her long arm dealer, they told her to charge $1.25 per foot. It does take time away from her quilting.

    I would happily pay someone to sew my bindings on! I am embarrassed to say but I have a Xmasy quilt on my bed right now...without a binding! I had it long-armed in Sept. and wanted to use it for the holiday season. Finally, on Xmas Eve I just went ahead and put it on the bed....w/o binding. Yikes! I have 2 other quilts waiting to be bound, as well.

    If there was someone close by, i would pay all the time to have them sew the binding on. i don't mind sewing to the back, but i hate the hand work, my hands cramp. For charity quilts i sew to back, bring to front and zig zag down. I hate bindings!! I would prefer to make the binding and iron in half myself tho.

    I used to charge my handquilting customers an additional $15 to do the binding. Most of the quilts I did were probably what is considered a regular double bed. I also charged them for the materials I used to bind, back and for the batting at my cost.

    Nope, just because I love hand sewing on the binding, piecing and sewing on the binding are my favorite parts of quilting.
