Sounds like a good price. I took a dress to get hemmed and she was charging $15.

free because I do it myself :-)

My grandma owned a dry cleaners and was a master seamstress. Taught me everything she knows.  I can't remember how much she would charge exactly but I think depending on where you go it would be anywhere from $5 - $10..some places might charge more.
