I'm not ignoring you.

I am a bit sick and a bit feverish and in that weird half asleep state at the moment.

As time goes on, my sewing room and the state of my brain grow increasingly similar.

Money money money

Money can be a touchy subject I know, but we are all friends here.
A friend of mine has been asked to do some stitching work for someone else.

My friend's stitching is beautiful . 
She is wondering what and how to charge for something like this, so I said I would ask the Brain's trust (that's you guys) on her behalf.

Is  it a charge by the hour thing?
Charge by the piece? 
Have you ever sewn / stitched / crafted for someone else in a formal kind of paid way.

Share your wisdom folks.
(Needless to say no-one would ever employ me based on my stitchery work)
