Anytime one orders the right fabric, there is a good feeling that comes with it. It feels better than a birthday gift or even a Christmas gift. Most individuals have actually felt as bad even after shifting from one designer to the other. You would need to know of the most probable mistakes you can make as an emerging designer in your fabric sourcing.
It tends to be common for many people to figure out continuity. You would need to make sure that your seller will not provide samples only to fail to ensure that he or she can offer you the same fabric assuming there was demand for the same. You would need to go for a seller who can always ensure continuity just in case your clients identify you with the fabric in question. It would be unfortunate where you picked up well after clients identified you with a given fabric only for you to frustrate them shortly after they have known you as a good seller.
It would also be unfortunate where you bought fabric without any specific plans for the fabric in question. It would not be wise to buy a given fabric and then store it hoping that you will use it sometime in the future. It would be an unfortunate move as you would have tied your cash, take up space in your shop, and also come with mental stress as you would have utilized the space for fabrics that could be selling.
You would also need to avoid making assumptions that the sample yardage will automatically be the same dye lot as the production one. Even while matching fabrics tends to be essential, coordinating them tends to be as important. It would always be essential to countercheck with the intention of making sure that the dyes perfectly match or at least they do not clash. You can only imagine how your truckload would sell fast and allow you to order for a production yardage.
You would also need to make sure that the quality of the roll is high. You would need to make sure that you open one of the rolls and check it thoroughly for quality. You would not want to realize errors about 45 days later when the vendor may not be of much help or when it will only take longer. However, there are some online wholesale outlets that tend to be very keen on their public image and tends to make sure that they deliver the exact expectations of the client. It is always good to work backwards where you get to the online market and see what your vendor has on offer. One would need to work with the knowns as opposed to working with the unknowns towards getting what he or she wants.
