Most people who require hand-painters will not want to train you only to have you move on when business picks up, and it isn't fair to lie about it! Also, the work you do for those companies (we use them for base painting and varnishing) might not be exactly what you're interested in.
Maybe your best bet would be to expand your product line, rather than diverting your talents/time into working for someone else. Try doing smaller pieces which would have more of a holiday show market--eyeglass cases, coasters, small purses, sachet pillows etc. It's not clear if you do just the painting or if you actually stitch the finished piece, so the type of show or shop you approach would be different for either. If you are good enough to work for established companies, you should be able to develop your own line to supplement your income.
