I have to make clothes and diapers for Marmoset monkeys. Can anybody help me with patterns or measurements. If you have more than one size pattern, it will be highly appreciated. I go this request from a pet shop as well as private owners.

Just as with human infants, take measurements and weight if neccessary, and then purchase patterns of baby clothes and adjust accordingly.
There must be some sort of size standards of measurements for diapers based on weight.
I would try searching for beanie babies clothing patterns, as well as tiny doll clothing patterns. You might try searching the links here : http://sewing.about.com/od/dollpattern1/Doll_Sewing_Patterns.htm see if you find any that are suitable for a monkey! Diapers I would just make a miniature pair of underwear, but it seems like the pictures of marmoset monkeys I've seen are all different sizes, but they are tiny little things though, aren't they? Could you try Barbie-doll patterns?
Will Newborn human diapers fit? Maybe the zoo needs to have a few disposable diapers on hand.
Where can I buy a marmoset monkey. I live in the states and I have been researching marmoset monkeys for about 13 years. Does anyone know where I can find one of these without the illegal trade issue?

I have a marmaset monkey and I have helped other people get them. Let me know if you are still interested.
Look up themonkeywhisperer.com he's in Fla and is the best place.
There is a website called TINYWEAR she sells marmoset cloths and diapers very reasonable prices! Florida is the best place to find a good breeder.
I am wanting to communicate with other marm owners in the sates. Please contat me at elkinslin AT yahoo.com

Be careful when purchasing products from Tiny Wear n more or Monkeyneeds.com. The stuff is poorly made and you can't get your money back.
I have tried both Monkey Needs (Tiny Wear & More) and Monkey Kisses. Their clothes are both just awful. And you cannot get your money back or replacement clothes...as a matter of fact they will not even acknowledge your emails. Oh, and by the way definitely DO NOT buy a baby from Monkey Needs.
Susan will not help you in any way after you pick up your baby. I bought my first marm from her and that was 4 years ago. She has yet to answer just one of my many, many, many calls or emails about care, feeding, or anything. She is a terrible person.
And Linda at Monkey Kisses, thinks she knows everything there is to know about marms just because she owns one, please. One does not make you an expert. If you have any questions or concerns fine a good and reputable breeder. That is one that has been doing it for more then just a few years. Check references! If they do not answer all of your questions to your full satisfaction move on. A primate is a big responsibility and should not be taken lightly. People DO YOUR HOMEWORK. Also your breeder is the one that should be able to point you in the right direction as to were to get all of you supplies such as food, clothing and everything you should ever need for your NHP.
