Fix Roman Blinds

I have a roman blind that is approximately 220cm in length with 8 linkages. The linkages are vertical linkages that run every 40mm. The linkages run through plastic eyelets, each eyelet is stiched on to a rib. Two of the 8 vertical linkages have broken, breaking the stitching on the eyelets. I need someone to reattach the 12 eyelets and run a new cord to the main cord.

It's probably easier to do this in place. The blind moves freely up and down, just the right side sags as there are no eyelets or linkages holding it up.

David, My concern about this quote is the total cost as from what I understand, your quote is $110 just to look at it. I have all the eyelets and the job involves reattaching two rows of eyelet and rethreading the string. Can you confirm what it would cost to do this specific repair all in?
Hi Mike Thanks for your reply.

Metal rings which clip on $3.30 each OR
Plastic rings which clip or sewn on on $1.10 each
Replace Cord or rethread each cord $27.50 each cord
Replace pully as it is usually worn and can fray or cut cord $12.10
Clean $22.00 for vacuum of fabric with hi suction to remove dust.
If the blind has timber battens it cant be ultra sonic cleaned only if reqd
All prices incl gst.
The factory is a specialist in repair of blinds and maintains one of Melb best stock of old but good spare parts
Your lucky I saw your post to offer to help.
The offer of $110 was to pick up and deliver and refit for you and inspect for any other repair options to keep it in servicable condition.
If you like I can reduce this to
$75 and you get more money to put towards repair.
Our experience is doing the repair in our factory always gives a better quality job and reduces the risk of
future breakages
Hope we can extend the life of the blind for you
The turnaround is a couple of days max
Cheers David
