    new product

    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?

    good luck with it.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    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.
