  3. Paulette Brake says:

    Help. I have been sewing for many years and now I am starting a business. To date I have just done things for friends or bartered sewing jobs for haircuts or massages. Now I am about to make curtains for a stranger. My delimia is how much do I charge? I have NO idea what this is really worth out there in the real world. Does someone know a site or another blog where I can get the info I need?

    The T.P. holder is the best!! I used oil cloth to keep it cleaner and to get the T.P.
    out easier. I also made it a little wider longer for out super rolls!!! This helps the
    guys to remember to change the rolls because it is right there…. so they can.
    Thanks a million!!!!
