mapsedge: Me at Stone Bridge Coffee House (music at the coffee shop 2)
All doublets contracted for the year are done. I have two pair of sleeves to make and a hat or two, and soon I'll be back on Seamlyne orders and the dye machine. There's plenty of fabric on the shelf, all the bills are paid for the month. Making progress.

I've started emailing with a company in India to see if I can get fabric by the hundred-yards in any color I want for a price below my pain point - which is calculated to be anything less than what I'm paying now. I'm really hoping so because that should lower my cost of doing business enough that I can bring my prices back down to where they were in '06. With a time offset of ten hours, the communication is slow going. In Kulkata at this moment (23:03CDT) it's already been Monday for 9-1/2 hours.

If that falls through, there's a company I found online that does batch dyeing, and I would have to imagine that just from economies of scale they could do it cheaper than me. We'll see what India has to say first, though.

I slept for three hours mid-day, much more than I intended, and I'm still beat. 'Night all.
