I have designed and made something out of fabric (with embroidery as well) that I think would be a commercial success if I could find someone to manufacture it in quantity. Might anyone on this board have any ideas about how to find a manufacturer for fabric projects?

Try calling some of your favorite quilt sites and they may be able to direct you to someone that can help.

I have never done this but there is a lot of money to be put up before getting something made to sell. That is why people go on the show "Shark Tank".

I had thought about selling the pizza parlor and buying 9 Juki commercial machines that are available here. The original owner wanted to sew Amish clothes. Then he came down with prostrate cancer and quit. So I sold the pizza parlor and a doing some of nothing right now for the last 6 weeks. I sort of like retirement.

Your project sounds interesting but would take lot of money and the worst part is the marketing.

I would work on a patent if you think it may need one.

I agree. No matter what the cost for the lawyer you will have guidance and be protected. Patent....definitely!
