I'd like to host a co-op. How to ?s

What do I need to do in order to host a coop? All of my feedback is in my siggy

I specifically want to host a MM white micro co-op. I would also be willing to help do a dharma co-op as I live close enough to save on shipping (I can go pick up the order )

Can someone please point me in the right direction? TIA!

I just added the co-op faqs last night

The one thing missing from the co-op faqs (need to add it today) is that you need to request membership to the co-op group (through your cp).

Gina, if you are thinking of doing a Dharma co-op... be aware that you will be charged sales tax. On our last Dharma co-op, tax was going to be something like $80. We had to redirect our shipping because tax+shipping within California would have been $110. The sales tax alone would have negated the savings for most of the mamas. It is most cost effective to ship to someone in Oregon or Washington State than to pick up in California. Just a little helpful hint.

Jeme,
Your shipping could be costly. It would be a good idea to check the shipping before getting *too* involved. To ship to me was going to cost about $60 (almost double what shipping to Jena would have cost but I would not have incurred sales tax).

ETA
I made a faux shopping cart with Dharma and put in your zip. Shipping from Dharma to you will run the same as shipping from Dharma to me. The subtotal was $489.80. I put in enough items to get the clothing discount. On 59lbs., it was $44 for shipping. To put it into perspective, we had (I think) 68lbs. of items (shipping to me was calculated to be $59).

Youch! That's pricey isn't it? So what states is it cheaper too? Or is it just weight that makes it that pricey? I guess there would have to sliding co-op fee or something, eh? Oh-well. I do want more stuff from them though, especially now that I'm LOVING all the tye-dying! I can't wait to do more. Just waiting on a couple things in the mail and I'll do a big tye-dying day again
