Making Curtains

Dear Andy, I have started making curtains at home for other people. The thing is I don’t know how much to charge them to make a pair of curtains .I think I have been asking for to little money for making them. Could you tell me how much I should be charging? Donna from N, Ireland

Dear Donna N from Ireland: Depending on the amount of time it takes, figure about $10.00 an hour for basic curtains, plus the cost of the fabric. More complicated curtains or difficult customers should be charged at $20.00 an hour. Miserable customers should be charged at $100.00 an hour, payment in advance, with an estimate of time that is double what you expect it to be. Impossible customers should be turned away at the door. Good Luck, Andy
