    The Wal-mart that carries fabric in Texarkana, TX isn't carrying the $1 and $2 fabric anymore. And the normal prices are at least as high as Hancock's and Hobby Lobby. But it is another fabric source. But it is strange to see $8 and $9 fabric at Wal-nart, of course most of it is around $6.

    I suspect this one won't have any after they sell what they have. The department has moved, and the 'cheap' fabric has finally moved down to 2 small shelves, where it used to be 1/4 of the fabric
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean????

    Me neither.

    I looked at some of the $2.00 fabric at Walmart. They didn't identify the fabric. A couple felt like 100% cotton, others were definitely a blend. I did buy a few bolts of Madison Avenue Designs Home Collection that were reduced to $2.00 a yard.

    A couple of women came up to me at the checkout register and asked about the fabric. They didn't know the fabric department had been returned to the store last year. It won't last if people don't know it's there. At the customer service desk, I suggested they put up a fabric department sign or notice because a lot of people are going to buy fabric for halloween costumes.

    I love the new fabric departments at my 2 Walmarts (both 45 mile drive for me, one East and one West) Last time I was at one of them they had several bolts of $1 - 2.50 material. I did see some high priced ones in the new fabric....$6.97 and some higher, but at least we have a selection again. I love the story about cutting your own fabric...I've been tempted to do that! lol

    No fabrics at our Walmart in Huntington Beach, CA but we do have a couple of great discount fabric stores, Jenny's in Fountain Valley and M and L in Anaheim. A fabricaholics dream store.
