Looking for Wholesale Fabric with Low Minimums?

7 years ago

If you happen to be in New York, there is a wholesale fabric tradeshow happening tomorrow (February 6th, 2012)! The cool thing about this tradeshow is that it is geared towards us “small-time, hey-every-one-has-to-start-somewhere” designers that usually require “low minimums”.

Side note: “Low minimums – The least possible quantity or degree.” Manufacturers usually have a minimum amount they will produce for a designer. Typically in sewing garments, this is around 1000 pieces (at $8 per piece, this requires a $8000 minimum investment). $8k can be a hard pill to swallow for a start up designer, so they typically want to work with companies that have lower minimums.

Unfortunately I literally JUST found out about this new tradeshow, otherwise I definitely would have hopped a flight and attended, but if you are a designer in New York, show up here:

Hotel Pennsylvania
Penntop Ballroom
18th Fl, Seventh Avenue (33rd Street)
New York City, NY 10001
