    Default Hard to find XC colors - anyone have any good resources for custom sewing?

    I want to get a couple white saddle pads and add hunter green and orange piping to them, but of course, no regular company carries orange!

    I am sure there are other things I could get done too.

    Does anyone have any good contacts where I could send some stuff to get some custom sewing done?

    Thanks!

    Seams Right saddle pads in Maryland. Diana something. Google that. She custom makes them.

    not sure if they have orange but you can get custom Toklat pads through Bit of Britain.

    Smartpak has a few custom saddle pad options, they have the Mattes Couture line as well as the High Point pads. I know for sure that Mattes has a nice orange they call "Terra", not sure about high point. BofB also carries the Toklat Classics III which are VERY nice, sturdy pads and can be full custom.

    If at all possible, I would try to avoid going the seamstresss route yourself. It can be way, way more expensive than just ordering the darn thing in your colors... trust me, I've tried!
