    My D/D reminded me when Mom was alive we would go to a store called two dollar a yard fabric store. It no longer is in business near me ,but they have a store in the San Francisco area stiill. I found if you search (two dollar fabric store) and (two dollar a yard fabric store) that they are in quite a few states. I will warn you they do not sell on line, so be prepared to go to a store near you. They used to sell 100% cotton and pillow panels and such when we went to ours,also muslin. I do not drive far these days, so I will have to wait to see what San Fran has to offer when hubby does family reunion Xmas party in Dec. Give them a google and see if there is one near you. You might find a real bargain!!

    Fortunately no. Tho I am sure there are a few stores that did at the time. I quit drinking WELL over 10 yrs ago. Now she tells me she misses that I don't care , too bad am I embarassing you to be seen with me attitude I had back then.I could get kind of freaky when I drank a beer. Mixed drinks I was fine. A beer I turned into a freak I guess, and capable of some strange things to make people think I was pretty insane I guess!

    LOL, isn't funny how the kids always remember the stuff you wish they would forget? I remember those $2.00 stores, thanks for the reminder.

    In Auburn, Massachusetts there is a new "The $1.99 Fabric Store" and every time I go there, they have more and more. They now have patterns, notions, trims and all kinds of fabric. I feel like I died and went to heaven. They are on Facebook with lots of pictures. Anyone within driving distance should plan on a day trip. It is well worth the drive. Luckily, I only have to drive about 15 min.

    Forgot about the Ben Franklin craft stores. When I was back there they also had fabrics . Don't know if they still do. And Woolworth dime stores if any are left had precut fabs , 2 and 3 yards like 1.99 a yard worth checking into .

    Penski, how did you do at the store? Did it have anything good? Was there a selection of fabrics, or was what they had overpriced!

    Sorry. Had read some where else some one went to an actual store and had found full yards of material and said they were quite affordable and a good selection. I will be moving back to Il and Wis area m thought maybe you would give me heads up if the actual stores did have. My daughter is not a walmart fan she does Target , so I don't know if her local stores have fab. Walmart still has here around me.

    She lives in Kenosha county area, so be the Great lakes Naval Base area. So I am looking into Lake county and Kenosha County. I actually went to Libertville High School my last years.

    I grew up a few blocks from a Ben Franklin store. As a kid I always spent my allowance there!
    Sadly our nearest cities store closed, but there is still one in Delavan Wis. Its a nice store, prices about the same as Hobby Lobby, but they do have some 30's fabrics, ect.
