    I just went to United Notions/Moda in July. Yes it is AC . You do need a tax id, you can take 1 guest with you.
    There are discounted bolts in front entry to warehouse-running from $2.65 yd on up. Good for backings but mostly prints. These are orphan fabrics.
    They do have some odds and ends pieces of current fabric-that may or may not have a flaw. There are some bins of
    orphan items and not on a bolt

    It is a jaw dropping experience when you see the stacks. Some days there will be full shelves and other times shelves may be sparce. Most of the bolts run from 6 yds to about 11. They have a price on average of around $9-10 yd. You then take about 40% off. There are no cheap bolts unless you scour and find one with 4 or 5 yds.
    There are certain lines that they will not let you buy : ( because there may be an order from LQS.
    There are some Alexander Kaufman pieces.
    Then you go to the notions section : ). You can buy some single items-rulers scissors, but some you have to buy multiple-they are also about 40% off. Threads and you would go crazy looking at the pattern books and individual patterns-good prices. Just think of a super Joanns!!
    And there is the min. purchase but its not hard to reach. I think I spend about $250 and the friend who is the member spent around $500. She is a LAQ
    Now that you have slapped me aside the head-its a fun day-but they do close early-not open on weekends.
    As long as you have the tax id with a business named-you should not have a problem.

    I live near San Marcos and didn't know that there was a fabric warehouse there. Where is it? Hope it's still there.

    You cannot go into the fabric warehouses without a resale number and filling out the appropriate forms. These are the locations where the quilt shops buy their goods. And they are to die for.

    I haven't heard of a fabric whse around San Marcos ?? Has anyone ? There USED to be a Comal Cottons outlet in New Braunfels, they were in an old bldg near downtown and had a lot of good wovens and homespuns etc. Not much print fabric. Anyone could buy there, no tax ID req. But they closed about 10 years ago I think ...

Everything is on bolts and yes you do have to buy the whole bolt. It is not like a retail store, they don't have people to help you. The people working in there are pulling orders and getting them ready to ship out to Shops.
    Thanks for the tip - great to know - I'm back. Summer has been super busy! Can't wait to catch up on all the great info here on the QBD.

    Google United Notions. The warehouse near Dallas is at 13800 Hutton Drive, Dallas, Tx 75234. My understanding is that you have to have a tax number from the state comptroller's office. I intend to take a relative there next time she visits. It will be my first trip, also. froggyintexas

    Cathy, I think she may be referring to New England Fabrics.

    I'm not sure how things go in the Moda wholesale ? But at EE Schencks in Portland where I have a wholesale account . I not only have to spend 150$ each time I go in , but I have to spend 1000$ per calendar year ! Signing up for a business license and getting the good deals... Is not really a way to go unless your really going to have a business.
    I have a Longarm quilting . And the fist few years it was hard to spend that much . I can bring one guest who has to be on my list . Can't really just take anyone in .
    It's really not fair to the stores trying to keep Their business open . Hope this helps people 😊

    United Notions is the owner of Moda fabric and you WILL need a resale license from your state. This is the business that sells bolts to your LQS along with precuts. I have never bought from Moda since I live in CA but have bought from Hoffman Fabric and P&B fabrics. Most fabric companies will require you to buy a minimum of bolts for your first purchase.
