    Here is the web address for WalMart:

    http://walmartstores.com/contactus/feedback.aspx

    Choose "Company feedback and questions" and tell them what you want. If they hear from a few thousand of us, it could just work.

    I sent it to Corporate. I told them that I haven't been in their store since they removed the full line of fabric - which is true. That use to be the reason I went into that place.

    Good luck to everyone in getting fabric back in your walmart's.

    Thanks for the link.
    As a quilter, I sent them a "piece" of my mind, for what it was worth. I contacted them several times when I heard they were taking fabrics and crafts supplies out. They ignored me.
    I let them know their decision had been a boon to many of the small town businesses, as they have sold me tires, computer supplies, lawnmowers, appliances and loads of groceries that at one time I would have bought at Wal-mart.
    I just don't have any use for matching Chinese made paper party accessories in this economy, and that is what they replaced our fabrics with in both local Wal-marts.

    When you go to
    http://walmartstores.com/contactus/feedback.aspx
    and choose 'feedback & questions'
    You will be able to make any remarks you wish. Then you have a choice to send it to corporate office or your local store. I chose corporate office, as that is where major decisions are made.

    Thanks for the web site. I told them that they took away not only our fabric, but our thread and zippers also.Stupid!
    I told them we want our fabric back.

    I've been doing that since I first heard that the fabric departments were leaving and it did no good. They seem to think that they can appease us by choosing pre-cuts. I don't want someone else picking my fabric and I don't want it precut. It seems that Sam's kids haven't inhierited his business sense. They've taken a race horse, beaten it to death and are still trying to get it to run. I've about had it with our Walmarts all together. I'm switching to Meijers--cleaner, much friendlier staff, better layout, better selection, better quality, lower prices. Last week I started to buy some 2ltr Diet Coke at Walmart---$1.48 a bottle. Meijer had it 10 for $10 and get the 11th free.
    Reinstalling the fabric department is the ONLY way I'm going back to Walmart for much of anything.

    The only way we can make a difference is to speak up. I would love to have an affordable LQS, but we are in the country where the closest town that has a fabric store is over 80 miles away.

    I got my response letter back from them this morning.
    They are still touting the Chinese made paper products for the "celebrations of life" as being more useful and in demand.
    Oh, well. They choose to ignore us. I choose not to spend one dime there again.

    Yes, I think so. They really need to hear from a lot of us, though.

    I wrote earlier today and just got a response from them. They said they took out the bolts of fabric in favor of a celebration center. I wrote back and told them they were crazy and I saw nothing in their store to celebrate. Bet I am on their s*** list but the truth is the truth
