Looking for a special grommet

ARTINSTITCHES | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Hi everyone.  Hope someone can help me.  I have a small home business.  I am looking to make a lovely little vinyl tote I’ve seen advertised.  I need a rectangular or “C-shaped” on both ends grommet, preferrably in goldtone metal.  It would need to be about 1 inch in length and is very slim in the opening, just enough to let a 3/4 inch belt pass through.  I’ve searched all over the web and cannot find anything like this.  Surely, some sewing accessories house would have something like it, but I cannot find one.  Please help!  Thanks to all.

      Oh!  Thank you!!  The very first site you mention was a winner, Diday!.  Rome Fastener Corporation seems to have the very thing.  I will e-mail or fax them shortly and get their prices.  So happy to find this site.  They seem to have everything I need.  Thank you, once again!  When I finish a tote, I'll send in a photo for all to see.  What good help we get in the sewing world!

      That first site was very interesting.  I looked to see if they had a tool for setting grommets but didn't see one.  I've been watching for something that does a better job than the things you get at JoAnn's, etc.  I don't use them often enough to justify industrial quality, (and expense.)

        You should be able to find something here, or in your local hardware or art supply store.

          Thanks for your suggestions.  I've looked at some of those places, but there are several I haven't.
