Pete, There are lots of cuttings for different trees and other plants shipped around and that is how a lot of large propagators get their scion stock and bud sticks, too.
But those are in commercial quantities, and hard to find a company that will sell just a few, so that leaves the problem of finding someone that has what you need.
I am glad to help you out, and if you happen to find some one that has a Muscat grape vine, maybe you can get me a few cuttings from it. I could not find anyone that even sold Muscat vines when i planted my Arbor.
On the grafting, i like to bud graft but my experience has only been on trees. When i was reading about grafting the grapes, the writer mentioned that the copious sap flow of the grapevines can push the bud graft out of place. That reminded me of one Spring when i pruned my vines late, of how much sap they pumped out, so realizing that could be a problem, i decided cuttings would be much easier.
