Applying my logo to fabric : know a company that does this?

I am looking for a person or company that can print, machine embroider, or silk screen my logo on FABRIC. I need to choose the fabric: it will be stitched at intervals into other patterned fabric panels for my display.I found one commercial company that does this, but their fabric choices are all white, and they work only on their own.  My logo is just black, so that part is not too hard. I would appreciate any leads. Thanks!See More

"SHOWOFF Stabilizer Bar Kit Is what I have. Set of 3. If little wind is present I skip putting it on (I DO have hundred of pounds of weight on my canopy) .  It also helps prevent sway. You DON’T have to place them at the bottom, though…"

"Okay, I am admittedly not up to speed on power tools and diy for woodworking. So in light of that, let me ask about a term y'all are using. What exactly is KERF? I have googled it and still really don't understand what y'all mean.…"

"Sorry not trying to hijack your conversation here. But I would like to suggest a different company for the blades if you go this route. I too have either worked in or owned a frame shop for the last 30 years. I used Ultrimiter for almost 20 years…"

Excellent post of the day, Linnea! Thank you. I hope everyone who feels beaten down by the jury system reads it.

And the trophy goes to Linnea! Once again cutting through the words and explaining so clearly what everyone needs to hear. Good job on your recent comment at "Crafter Police".

Hi, Linnea!  Connie suggested I leave a comment for you... Coming from the Chicagoland area, what do you know of the Deerfield Festival of Arts in Deerfield, and the Naperville Women's Guild's Art Show?  Both of these are on the weekend of June 4-5... Have you done either of these or heard good/bad info on them?  Coming from Central Illinois, I know both areas are good areas, but I'm having a hard time finding any reviews on either show.  Any thoughts or comments would be most appreciated!  Many thanks in advance, then, for your time and efforts!

 

Warmest regards!

Thank you for your response. I have realized from perusing this site that there are just so many issues that I have never considered. I appreciate the advice from all of you who have been in the business.

Hi Linnea! I was looking for information about Artfest Midwest, and saw your post about booth recommendations. Since you did the show last year, do you have any booth location recommendations?
Thanks!

Thanks Lin for weighing in on A-RTS. These shows pay me, of course, to have their information shared and to have this one get such reviews from you is great! I appreciate it.

Hi Linnea...I'm exhausted tonight. I will call the hotel and see if they will accept your name instead of mine. It's a Country Inn and Suites which are nice. I'll get it done by 10:30 central time. Call me! 770 843 4604

Hi Linnea, not sure if you got my other messages, I seem to have a hard time manuvering around this site. I'm sure you're busy with shows right now.
