    i would think that if you are looking to start a wholesale business or any business for that matter you would know exactly what you are getting yourself into by asking professional in whatever the business venture is. Including looking into how much "pricing by the bolt" might be. i personally don't care if she posted once or a million times. so good luck!

    I have already apologized. I stand corrected.

    No, I'm not opening a shop in MD, but that's a great thought! Haha, I would be in heaven. I live in MD, but my sisters are both in Pittsburgh, so that's where we will be doing shows, at least for now. I wish we had more fabric stores in this area. There's a good one in southern MD, and one in Annapolis that I go to the most.

    First of all, k8edu, I want to wish you luck with your new endeavor. Secondly, I have read this Board daily since October and have NEVER heard such negativity and "snarkiness" toward someone trying to get information and learn. It's a shame that some people, like ro, need to talk down to others. I truly don't believe that you need to know how much fabric is on a bolt to be a quilter. Shame on you, ro! k8edu, please don't judge this Board by what you've seen here today.....there are MANY good things here too.

    Sorry, not everyone. I have been quilting for more than 25 years and never knew that. Guess there was never a reason I needed to.

    I just received my business license and am set up as sole proprietor and will only work out of my home. My situation is different as I do not have any employees or partners. My accountant said there was no reason for me to do LLC or Corp for a one person business.
    I was not successful finding out information locally on setting up a business so I started my own research and this is what I have so far:

    Marshall Dry Goods 888-744-8277 has good basic supplies. I've ordered from them before but not using a wholesale account. The person to ask for there is Randy. Yardage on their bolts differ based on the fabric line.

    Checker Distributors sells the quilt shop fabrics. Your first order is a minimum of $300.00. Each order thereafter is $150.00 with free freight. The requirement is spending a minimum of $1200.00 with each year (anniversary of first order). Yardage also differs based on the fabric line and type.

    Linda's Electric Quilters: for specialty threads and notions: 800-890-2748. I've sent my application to them. They verify my license number with the Revenue authorities and will let me know the terms thereafter.

    Still have many more shops on my list to research.

    Actually, I'm glad you asked. I've been wondering the same thing...for years.

    I didn't know exactly how much is on a bolt. I've never bought a whole bolt of fabric before, so never needed to know. I'm 51 and have been sewing since I was 12 or so.
