I have the buttons. I was just wondering what a reasonable charge would be for replacing them. One tailor near by said a $1 a button, which I thought was crazy. I may try the DIY approach, but would still like to know a fair value.

Seriously? If you think $1 a button is too much you really should bone up on your sewing skills.

<$1 button is a bargain. Do one youself, see how long it takes you and how satisfied with the result you are, then you can decide how much you're willing to pay someone else to relieve you of the task.

learn from alexanders tutorial. once you learn, its yours for life.
get yourself a thimble [with a hole in the top], apackage of needles, and a spool of thread.
you now have a lifetime supply of equipment.

Thimble... who need a thimble. In the tutorial they used no thimble.:icon_smile_wink:

I've sewn on buttons without a thimble multiple times.

Oh! I forgot... I drew blood multiple times.;)

$1 a button is a pretty good price. I believe my dry cleaner charges $3.
