    I'm wondering if anyone else has given a thought to what the young ones at WM have managed to do to the old man's vision...and how much we have all encouraged and enabled them to do it? That big picture isn't very pretty, is it?

    if you know product lines, you should only buy product lines that are known for their quality, Many times I find Moda and Amy butler at Walmart, Joanns and other places. you have to dig but its worth it.

    I did just that! I was looking for Roclon Muslin... and had to go to W/M and thought I'd just look and see. Sure enough, they did have it. Bought 5 yards of it because of a swap I'm in and wanted more bleached muslin. I made one practice block with it and OMGosh, you could see through it. It was horrible. I don't know if it was just because it was W/M or what, but I ended up getting Kona bleached at JoAnns and you can't see through it.

    It's sad to see quality and pride in your products go out the window for profits.

    I know what you mean about the material at WM and glad that our WM's don't sell fabric anymore. I'd rather pay a little more and get good quality fabric.

    You have to be careful at JoAnns as well. I picked up a bolt of white flannel and there was not enough fabric on it. There were two more w/ the same skew on it. One was the same quality as the first while the quality of the second was terrible.

    The economic crisis is worldwide and we are starting to see the results. Everything is getting more expensive and poorer quality. Im just glad I have a good stock of notions bought before all this happened.
    I really noticed it when Joanns doubled the price of batting and went up in price on everything.

    I recently saw some fabric at our WM that I was considering buying until I read the label that said "Machine wash COLD;Iron on wrong side only" It was 100% cotton and not "scrunchy" like a pique or anything that would be flattened by ironing. What do you suppose THAT is all about????
