How Much to Charge for Long-Arm Lessons
I have a friend that wants me to teach her how to use her new long-arm machine. I have no idea what to charge. Has anyone ever had the occasion to teach? If so, how much did you charge?

sorry no experience in this area. The one lady I taught uses my machine and pays me what she feels is fair to the both of us when she does her quilts on it (my machine).

I really do not know what I would charge, however if she was a friend probably nothing.

At mimimum charge what you would have made per hour , if you were working on a for $$ quilt.

My LQS Charges 60 for their longarm lesson. Its a whole day, and then they charge you to rent it to do your quilts by the hour

Our local LQS charges $15 for one hour.

Never heard of that over here. I'd certainly be interested (and in lessons beforehand obviously).

Well...since it's her new long arm and she will be using her own fabric, thread etc. And since she is a friend...I wouldn't charge her anything. Of course...that's just me. Once she was sure she could proceed on her own and if she offered me money for teaching her then I would accept it.

I feel your time and expertise is valuable. I think $15 an hr is reasonable and maybe consider $50 for a 4 hr session. One on one/hands on training will be such a blessing to your dear friends confidence in using her new machine!

Thanks to all posters. I've got a pretty good idea what I'm going to do now!
