Hi, I am a recent fashion design graduate trying to start my own sewing business and I am toying with the idea of selling fabrics as well. In my town we are very limited to where we can buy fabric and even then it is never what you are looking for. I have to drive two hours to Toronto to get nice fabric relatively cheap! What I am wondering is where to find the wholesale fabrics! or fabric distributors. If you type either one in a web search you get crazy feed back. I don't know where to begin! Any advice from those who are experienced would be helpful.
