Firstly, let me thank all of you who have made my sewing experience so much more interesting, because of your postings. I've been following your discussions for a long time and have learned so much. I have a part time alteration and repair business. The only concern I have is around the time it takes me to "take apart" or rip out stitching. I have not been charging for that time since I usually do it while watching TV. I feel like I must start charging, but I wonder if I will hurt my business by doing so. I have built up a loyal clientele over the last year and a half, but feel I must be undercharging. I live in a very small town where my customers are not used to "Big City" prices. I would appreciate any information any of you might share
