how to work with a sewing contractor to get your product made

Today’s #AskJanesBrain video answers a questions from an emerging designer, Jill, about getting price quotes for manufacturing from a sewing contractor. Jill just had her FIRST MEETING EVER with a factory (go Jill!!) and what the factory head told her seeems strange. Almost like they’re scamming her because she’s a newbie designer.

Watch the video to hear Jill’s problem and what she can do about it.

Whaddayathink? Has this happened to you? Have you had your first factory meeting yet or do you remember your “first time”? If you have, tell me about it in the comments below. I’d love to hear how it went and what we can all learn from it!

I want to hear from you!! Stop lurking and leave me a comment below – show me you’re alive!!

Thanks for watching!

  1. I am currently seeking a sewing manufacturer. I live in Atlanta, Ga. Do you have any contact information for me.

    1. Hi Melissa,
      No one can really recommend a factory to you without understanding what product you make, the quantities you want to order, your state of prepared-ness (do you have a final pattern? Is it graded?), and the timing you need. I rarely recommend specific factories to designers unless I’m working with a designer very closely and even then, I tell them they really need to look for themselves and meet with all potential factories before they decide of take my word for it.
      – Jane
