I was out this morning running errands and was really surprised to see fabric in Wal-Mart! (It is new in the last several days, as we were there over the weekend and didn't see it.) I'd had no intentions of buying fabric today (I'm trying to destash a bit), but I had to look. And I found some Transformers fabric, so I bought some to make new pants for my boys. (I made them pants out of Transformers fabric a year or so ago, and they were worn in heavy rotation until the knees were ripped out a few months ago.) Perfect timing for back to school!
The woman cutting fabric told me that they'd had 5-6 inquiries about fabric per week for a long time, but that she was afraid that people had finally gotten used to Wal-Mart not having fabric anymore. I was happy to tell her that it was all over the internet that it was coming back! ;)
