    Wow-just finished reading it! Looks like it can only be a positive thing for us quilters! (mind you, I feel like I have contributed to their successfulness single-handedly! LOL) Bigger and better stores in their future-hope they keep up with the good sales and coupons!! Thanks for the info!

    Hope you're right. The closest fabric store (JoAnn's) is 3 hours away. We really only have one very small area in Walmart. There are a couple of quilt shops, but their fabric is very expensive.

    They are in the process of closing the Jo Ann's here in Huber Heights Oh. Cannot understand why, although this article might be part of the answer.

    Our small Joann's in Brookfield CT closed and reopened as a Superstore in a new location...So many new fabric sections I spent 2 hrs today picking out light and darks to start a traditional log cabin quilt I promised I'd do in the New Yr.
    I decided to go out of my box of colors and go aqua blue and browns....

    I will keep positive thoughts about this acquisition. Things can only get better with JoAnn's.

    I'll be watching what changes they may make. I'd love to see more merchandise.
