    Hey gals,
    Has anyone purchased the fabric pattern of the tree skirt they have at Joann's.? I have to say, I was mightly upset when I found out that the piece they cut is for only HALF the tree skirt for 16.99. Actually, I was shocked. Why would a company make a pattern with only HALF of it, so you have to buy a second half? I bought when it was on sale for 50% off, but still...what a rip off I thought. Nobody wants HALF a tree skirt.

    Haven't seen what you are talking about and doesn't sound like I should look for it either :? Thanks for the heads up

    They don't sell 1/2 a pillow panel, why would they do that for a tree skirt? :roll:

    Maybe the person that cut it misread the end of the bolt?

    I recently found bargain prices for fabric online. Then I noticed they were for half yards. Lesson learned: Pay attention to details.

    I'll bet that's what happened - an inexperienced cutter. I wish they would have people explicitely for the fabric department who knew what they were doing.

    Otherwise, I'd ask for a refund.

    I'd still return it for a refund (or try to get the other half)

    Ironically,it was one of the fabric gals that told me it was only half a skirt. I bought two pieces, but if she had not told me, I would have gotten home and only had the half skirt. It was because SHE bought two, one for her and one for her sister, and found out when she started to make it, it was only half a skirt. The name is on the fabric, I am going to send them a note. I took it to my daughters, so don't have the name handy, but will let you all know. That is such a rip, but such a beautiful skirt.
