I recently contacted an upholsterer to recover two small couches. If I purchase fabric thru her I will pay for the fabric and the labor. If I provide the fabric, she charges a fee of $14.00 per yard in addition to the labor charge. Does anyone know if this fee is typical? Frankly, I could see a certain amount of upcharge since she wouldn't make any profit on the fabric if I provide it, but this fee seems pretty steep to me. Any other opinions out there??? Hm... are the couches in need of anything other than fabric? Will cushions need to be replaced? Structural materials?The upholstery work COULD involve something other than fabric and labor. If all such things are included in this $14/yard surcharge, I might consider it.But otherwise... how much does the fabric cost? I'd probably be looking for a different upholsterer.
