    Brother Pacesetter embroidery 600 yard spool sets, six different colors per set.
    All the tips and accessories for the Simplicity Bias machine
    Excellent assortment of Fiskars rulers and mats. The boxes were still loaded on the shipping cart ready to be shelved, but I snooped. I couldn't see what was in the bottom boxes, they were big and looked heavy. Lots of good stuff to see there now!

    I hope they bring sewing notions etc, back to ours. They just have junk in sewing and crafts now. I miss looking at all the notions. I miss my old Wal*Mart

    The fabric dept manager at this Walmart is a quilter so she orders all the quilting notions. It is one of the few that never got rid of the fabric dept. Anything that is in the Walmart Dist warehouse can be ordered for the store so she makes sure she get one of everything offered. She put in an order for Fusi-Boo Batting made by Fairfield, Fairfield is a Walmart supplier. She still has the pattern cabinets in her area with pattern books with stools to sit on to look at them. She said she just kept ordering from the warehouse and fabric and supplies kept coming. She orders only the basic craft supplies to have room for sewing supplies.

    The fabric manager is the one that let me see her order book she can order from the warehouse. I asked her to order the Fuse- Boo batting when I saw it listed. She said every fabric dept manager had the same book to order notions from even if they didn't have a fabric dept. Most choose the craft items to order for the space they have instead of quilting tools and notions. The can fill up their dept space with what they want to order.

    I was at our local Wallyworld and the lady told me they will not be getting any yard goods in because no employee wants to cut fabric. She also said they are cutting back the hours for everyone. I did buy a great,and I mean great, 1/4" attachment for my machine. It would fit most regular machines. It has a definite 1/4" and then when you get to the edge of the square, it has a 1/4" mark so you do not have to sew off the end. It is around $8 but I have done many blocks this summer and it is just wonderful. My chip is out of the camera to download pics or I would send a pic. Maybe later.
