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.

as well. I know that one needs a tax ID number but it is the middle person that I would like to know about...
Heather.. I will see what I can find..

Try Siltex Knits as a jumping off point. They are out west.
www.siltex.com or maybe www.nusso.comor maybe www.marcusbrothers.com or maybe www.crosscountryfashionfabrics.com
That should get you started.
