Around here, they charge per foot or inch ... sorry can't remember the prices, as I decided I could save that $$ and learn to do it myself.

My longarmer charges as follows: for making and machine attaching the binding for the customer to finish, $1.00 per linear foot. For making and machine attaching the binding and finishing by hand, $3.00 per linear foot. In both cases, that's using fabric the customer provides.
