Can this machine be rented? Or can you outsource the part of sewing that requires close stitching to someone who has access to such machine?
I've seen ads in craigslist asking for a seamstress with experience and access to a specific machine. Don't know how successful they were in finding one, but it's another idea.

How can you hack your current sewing machine so you can do what you need? What about buying another (spare) presser foot, then grinding it down so it's tiny? (That way, it'd still hold your fabric down, but will let you sew close to your hardware & do tight turns).
What other options are there? (There are always other options). Are there companies, factories, schools, hobbyists in your town with specialized sewing machines? If not, what about sending your materials out to someone nonlocal who can sew it up for you?
I suggest you try raising the presser foot at the point where you are about to begin the turn.
Run the machine as slow as it will go - manually turning the wheel if necessary - while you make that turn.
Lower the foot and off you go until you reach the next turn.
I suggest practicing on some fabric until you get the hang of it, because at first you could have stitches that are too long, or not on course.
So you can pretty much loan one of these machines, but the risk is not worth it. I guess I might have to settle with product quality. Although it is killing me that I know I can do better.
Going through another barrier and tried to Mcgaver it again...and it is the same scenario with costly machine easily solving the issue.
Thanks everyone from the inputs. I really enjoy this stuff.
Somehow figured out a way, did my marketing plan release and response was very positive on the target market. Not a single sale though...
Was really hoping this was gonna skyrocket. I am rushing against the clock. I went on vacation a month back and quit my job for the vacation and never went back to work. Thought I was going to luck out, that I never had to go back to slowlane, but looks like it is inevitable. Burning through cash fast with all this prototyping. Been doing 16 hour work days on this and LOVE it, just gotta make money and I will be golden.
