Thank you so much for replying. What sort of things have you done in the past and how much do you charge?

Thank you

Anything really! Cushions , curtains, duvets, throws, beanbags, cot bumpers Competent in machine and hand stitch. Trained in pattern cutting and fashion design originally, final collection was hand painted silk! Just finished largest drop curtain at Christmas 4.5m drop, interlined, silk goblet pleats. All hand sewn in traditional way. Always charge by piece, dependent on style, size, and fabrics used. What kind of volume are you talking? I can send a pic of my working u message me an email address! wink

That would be great my e-mail is
Volume wise it would be maybe just 2 of each piece just to see what the end product looks like and then moving to 10-20 per style.

Not sure if thats any good?
