I was taught by a few quilting friends to never buy fabric from JoAnn's or WalMart for quilting. They say that JoAnn's and WalMart buy "second and third runs" from the manufacturers, therefore the cotton is of poorer quality...lower thread count and less printing quality.
So I've never purchased fabric from anywhere but quilt shops. But I see that a lot of you purchase fabric at the discount stores.
Have you ever noticed a difference between quilt store fabric and discount store fabric? Thanks.
I have bought from Joann's for years. They do have mixed quality and you have to really look at all you buy for quality but they really have some good sales - especially if you want notions and other things.
