  • Cost for tiebacks

    What would be a reasonable amount to charge for a pair of piped tiebacks?

    £30? If I have remnants from the curtains, so the fabric cost doesn't come into it.

      A few years ago some members took part in a forum pricing survey.....back then the average price for a pair of piped tiebacks (labour only) was £35.00

        I ended up giving them away as a freebie! I need to toughen-up!

          Tiebacks are like cushion covers- they are small so everyone (including us makers!) think they shouldn't cost much. Actually they can be really fiddly and take ages to finish properly, so we definitely shouldn't undercharge. Easy to say, not so easy to do!

            I'm thinking of it as a "loss leader". The client had spent a lot of money with me for curtains and she's delighted with the gift, so maybe it'll lead to good referrals.

              The only danger with that policy is that everyone might expect the same 'gift'! However it is often tempting to throw in a little extra for a good customer.
