    I did some research on wholesale fabric were you can get cuts by the yard or bolts just have to get a tax ID to get in with them. I got a full list of suppliers. Atleast it cuts down the cost of the fabric by buying it this way. Just make sure you claim sole propriatorship and pay the taxes.

    I have two very close friends that I do share shipping with but wouldn't open myself up to it with anyone else!

    WE have done it with order books thru AQS, the more books you by, the better the discount. One person orders and we all pay her. been a few years, cause the gal doing it moved away.

    I thought it was a good ideal.....until I ordered somethings before Thanksgiving and am still waiting for the other person to pick up and pay for their things. That is the chance you take.

    Deborah12687,
    Wondering if you have to have a specific tax ID. I have a business, but it does not involve any type of crafting. Mine is property management.

    No, it won't make any difference. The reason for the tax ID is so you can file and pay taxes all at once.

    One of the groups that I used to be in did a big order from the "States" once and once only. The shipping costs made no difference to the prices they would pay here and they waited a long time for it.
