    I just talked to the fabric lady tonight and it's official. They will be remodeling Feb/Mar and the fabric will be gone. :cry: I hope I can find a little $$ to stock up before then! Some of it is horrible, but some of it is very nice...

    Not here! They remodeled a couple of years ago and we still have fabric, plus they're getting more. It's over stocked.

    Ours doesn't have fabric anymore. They closed around october because they put up a new supercenter, but they quit having fabric a few months before that. Now they have fat quarters only.

    Several of the remodeled stores still carry fabric it is just precut for fun projects ... No ideal for quilters but still fun :)

    I am sorry for your loss though ...

    They remolded ours too...we still have a fairly good size fabric area but not a big as it use to be. When ever I go there is only one or two customers there...when I go to Joanne's which is right down the street its packed. The local quilting shops also always have more people shopping for fabric than in Walmart. I like how they have fabric to help other shops keep their prices reasonable.
