Original Post

Aside from creating things with fabric I am totally addicted to buying it however, like everything else, prices are rising. Somewhere I heard mention of fabric co-ops - I'm guessing it means a group of people who buy bolts of fabric from the manufacturer at a discount and share the cost and the yardage.

Does anyone know any details about this?

I've ordered from "aworldawayfabrics" before. It's a yahoo group. They buy lots of high end fabric from Japan. Very cute cotton prints. It take a while, but it's soooooo much cheaper. Everyone votes on fabrics. They pledge to buy a certain amount of yardage. When they have enough pledged yards to add up to a bolt, they buy it, cut it up and send it off. Real good group.

I love fabric coops but spend way too much money on them. They are a great way to get a variety of fabric at great prices. Like Lillian said sometimes you have to wait awhile, but I guess that's just part of waiting on a bargain. I have my tax id # where I can order wholesale, but most places require you to order so many bolts that in the long run you have to put out a large amount of cash up front. So, fabric coops work great for me. If you want convo me and I can give you the names of the ones Im a where I'm a member.

Hugs,
Gina

We have an easy to use fabric co-op. We are adding new fabrics weekly and we have the newest fabric lines as they hit store shelves for at least 30% off retail. Buy a yard or buy a bolt. We will be ordering the new lines from Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, Sandi Henderson, Tanya Whelan, Denyse Schmidt and many more. www.fabfanatic.com/reserve-fabrics
