Hey Janelle,

I just updated the Doc in the facebook group! Since that is where most of the students are.
Here is the update:

UPDATE February 27th, 2017

Here is the official update as information flows into us. Bonnie, Simona and I will be working super hard to arrange this. It will take some coordination. If we can bring it together then we will have a really cool thing going on that could help us all reach our goals, now and into the future.
My goal is to provide my students with more then just training but avenues to reach their goals. This opportunity will provide us with drop dead hardware that will give your bags that exclusive look!
Your goals should be to dazzle the world with your designs
We have learned the following steps:
1. Pick the products we are interested in.
Every person interested go through the catalogue find the pages that most interest you. Then post the page number and products.

2. Once we have the product then we send that to the manufacture and they will give us a price and what each style minimum will be. ( yes they still enforce a minimum it could be as little as 1,6 or 12, but that’s okay.) Some of us might want the same pieces.
3. Once we have the prices, I will post them. Then we can start to make our selections.
4. The individual orders are then paid for in full, we will pick a due date and everyone pays on the due date and deposited with either Simona or Bonnie whichever one decides to be the banker. They place the order at the show, this allows them to establish a relationship with the company. The pieces are then made, so they are not sitting around in a storage bin, they are made only when sold.
5. It takes 4 weeks to be shipped. This means it will be four weeks to reach our distribution points. This could mean from Bonnie Stillwell, Simona Businelli or me depending on where you live in the world.

That’s where we are now! Every step will be documented, Every order will be given to me so that we have documents in triplets, One to Bonnie, one Simona and one to me and of course you will have your own record. Participates will be updated as we are updated. All purchases will be under the HMDH Academy Account. This way we have control of the orders and speak as one voice. Once we have set this up, anytime we need more we can just submit as a group and purchase as a group. Simona lives in Italy so it makes sense that she will be our direct contact with the company once the order is place.

We will use this doc, to post comments, orders and status of the order.
As always, comments and suggestions as to how to make this buying group better will be appreciated and amended as we go forward.

If you go to Facebook group you will see additional info.
