    Marshall's Dry Goods - Ever wonder what it looks like?

    Here's a great article about it with lots of pics. I wish I lived near there.

    It wouldn't do for me to go there in person. I have a hard enough time behaving myself on their website. Budget? What budget? Just send me a yard of everything you have! ha ha

    Wow, those pictures are a quilters dream come true, fabric as far as the eye can see. Thank you for sharing the link.

    I have ordered fabrics from Marshall's many times, and have always dreamed of going there one of these days, but am not sure that would be a good idea, since I don't have room for the fabric I Have. LOL

    Oh my goodness. We have absolutely nothing like this in Australia. I have just been onto their website and seen the prices. I could cry when I think what we have to pay here.

    Pocoellie, if you ever get to Southern CA you can go to M & L Fabrics on Ball Road in Anaheim. It's very similar to Marshall's Dry Goods.

    I love Marshall’s and try to go about twice a year. I feel like Alice in Wonderland there. I shop all day and still feel like I haven’t seen everything. The staff are really sweet too.

    I am fortunate enough to live about 75 miles from Batesville; so I can go there. I love all of the fabrics, and the staff is really nice and helpful. I now can pick out the fabrics that the LQS buy from MDG and mark up a few dollars. Not all LQS do this, but some do. I do not care. I just do not want to pay $6.95 a yard for fabric that I know I can get for $3.99 or $4.99 per yard at the warehouse.

    Now, that's a stash!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    It looks almost identical to Hancock's of Paducah - don't know about the wholesale part though.

    If I ever get to Paducah or Pigeon Forge for the quilt shows, I'm going to have to make a stop at Marshall on the to or back. I'll have to google just where Batesville is in AR.

    FYI - my youngest daughter lives in Paducah and we go to Hancock's of Paducah every time we visit her (5 hours away from here) and they have 10 rows of Batiks - my favorite!!! This store is not to be confused with Hancock Fabric Store - not related anyway.

    I live about 1 1/2 away so I go whenever I want. I love their $1 a yard bins. I have found 3 - 5 yard pieces of name brand fabric. The $1 a yard bins are very big and you never know what you will find. My last find was 5 yards of Riley Blake. I love to browse the back rooms.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    I just placed an order! They had some Riley Blake Knit fabric that I am going to try sewing my grandson some clothes. They had some 1st quality bolt cotton fabrics for $1.95 a yard if you buy the entire bolt. Chickened out, anyone know if their bolted fabrics are nice?

    If you order name brand fabric it is the same as it is anywhere. Some of the MDG fabric is a little stiff to me with the exception of Dream Cotton. It's very good.

    Here in the Twin Cities we have SR Harris fabric outlets. There is one about 10 miles from me. It's my happy place. Marshall's seems bigger and more open. My friend and I hope to road trip there someday!

    I was at Harris's in Burnsville last year. The fabrics were stacked so close together, I had a hard time seeing and accessing them. It took a long-distance to get there, I used to live in Eagan and never went.

    I purchase from Marchalls. I have purchased their Marchalls line prints as well as their Brand name fabrics. Other than the Dream color solids, I find most of their print fabrics lacking in design to the name brand fabrics. The feel is usually not as soft either, but there are some that I like and would use. What I question is the wear to these fabrics in terms of color retention and wear. How well do they hold up over time?

    I know what you mean! The one I go to is in Brooklyn Center, and some fabrics are stacked so high, or deep that you need a ladder to reach it! The Burnsville one is on the other end of town from me and I've only been there once a long time ago.

    I am thinking of buying a bolt of black fabric. Would this be the best place to do this and what brand have you guys used. (I bought some black Kona and it frayed badly, made me crazy)

    I have not bought specifically their black. But I have bought their white by the bolt, as well as some other colors in yardage. I prefer to cut my own strips and squares as it is more economical. Their Dream cotton is really a nice fabric and I believe a heaveir weitht than the Kona. I can't say that I think it frays that much. There would be some when fabric is cut straight as opposed to pinked edges, but nothing that really bothers me.

    I also like their Blended fabric when I don't want a true solid. They have a modled look and are more attractive in my mind when chosing colors (not necessarily blacks or whites) They also have a good weight to them, but not as nice a hand as the Dream cotton. I have purchased Kona solids, but other than their vast color offerings, I really prefer the Dream cotton. That's my take on it anyway.
