Ordering Mills And Textile Jobbers

The number on your web page for the T.I.P. Guide actually belongs to another company. Do you have a current telephone number for ordering the book of mills and textile jobbers? Thanks, Cyndy: It took me a while to track this down, but the information will be worth the wait, for you and all of our readers. The T.I.P. guide is now out of business. The gal that originally published the T.I.P. guide, has now produced two NEW books that will be of interest to you, and all of our family. These are Textile Sources ( a Who’s Who of the domestic textile industry) and The Designers Guide of Fabric and Trim Resources. Visit the web site at or call 212-585-1096. We have arranged a special 5% Discount for our readers. When you place your order on the web site, in the box marked “promotional code”, put “ANDY”. The web site itself, is chock full of information about upcoming trade shows, too. Good Luck, Andy

GOOD MORNING ANDY, I HOPE ALL IS WELL. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR NEW WEB SITE: WWW.NATIONALTEXTILE.NET IT’S A WONDERFUL SOURCE FOR DOMESTIC FABRICS & TRIMS.

Purchasing And Trade

ANDY: I am interested in opening an up-scale upholstery fabric store as there is nothing like it in my area. How do I go about purchasing fabrics from the different companies (P. Kaufman, Robert Allen and the like? ) Which are the best trade shows to attend for this type of fabric? What is a typical investment – is there one? Anything you could share with me would be greatly appreciated. Dear K: While I don’t know how much money you will need to open your store, I suggest you plan to attend the upcoming trade show that caters to the upholstery market. The next show is July 10-13 in High Point, North Carolina. Visit to register. Visit the web sites of some of their member companies. Plan to spend three full days there. Bring a note book and write down as much information that you can gather on each of the companies that you want to deal with. Spend your time, before you spend your money. See if you can find a friendly sales person to make suggestions. They are out there. Ask a lot of questions. Good Luck, Andy
