    i've heard that joann's will no longer be carrying fq's. has anyone else heard this? the girl in the store thought the rumor is true, because she hasn't seen any coming in in several weeks now.

    I thought someone else somewhere here on the board said that Joannes had a problem with their supplier who wasn't cutting true fat quarters and so they were working to fix the problem. And if the last fat quarters i got from there are any indication it was true :hunf:

    No way!!...How rude, the majority of my crafting is made from those little jewels. I guess we can all go in and just buy 22"s each of the fabric we want at a time, then have them cut those in half...that'll teach them. I am sure the poor cutting ladies will get tired of cutting 22" off dozens of bolts then ringing each one separately (tax purposes) ha-ha

    They just changed suppliers. I bought some of the old fq's on clearance for 50 cents. They already had the new ones

    I don't use fgs, I buy 5-8 Yd.s at a time, sometimes more. I have lots of scraps and when I make scrappy quilts I use what I have. DD uses fqs.

    Our Joann's has no FQ's right now. None! I was shocked. The cutting table girls had no clue why not or if any were coming in.

    I wondered why they were selling fats so cheap. They were never less than 99c before.
    Must be clearing out the wrong cuts and finding another supplier.

    My JoAnns don't have the fat quarters and they've taken down their fat quarter holders that they had on the wall with the bolts of fabrics.
