    Went to Marshall's Dry Goods!

    Hoffman batiks for $3.95 a yard by the bolt. The reps were filling flats with quilt shop orders to be shipped out. It was batik heaven. My four friends and I each bought two bolts of 15 yards. We shared and each got 3 yards of each different bolt. I also bought a bolt each of black, cream, and white Dream Cotton for $2.49 a yard. We don't share that. Too inexpensive not to keep the bolt. I like Dream cotton better then Kona.
    I love my life!

    Glad to hear your comment on Drean Cotton. Is the weight about the same as Kona? Have been disapoointed in JoAnns Kona fabric. Seems to be getting thinner!!

    I've used their Dream Cotton, I agree it's much better than Kona.

    I can feel confident ordering the fabric I know what it is after seeing it in person. Of course any of the name brand fabric is excellent.
    I love my life!

    Have you used the black and is it as colorfast as the Kona?

    Marshalls is a fabric distributor not a fabric store. The reps buy from the manufacturer and then sell to wholesale customers. Marshall's reps will sell to individuals. The by the yard fabric is available in the front of the warehouse not sold by the reps.

    Anything I have gotten from Marshalls was fine, and they sell to quilt shops. Would love to go in person, njust like MSQC. But that is a dream.

    I bought these bolts from Marshall's awhile back. Quilt shop quality. If you order the name brand you get the name brand quality. Name:  IMG_0174.JPG

    I have used the bright red Dream Cotton and it didn't bleed. I haven't tried the dark blue or purple but they are on my list to buy.

    Thanks for checking this out for me. I need some for a stained glass type pattern. The price is good.

    I was just there last Friday! I go about 3 times a year. LOVE IT.

    They have different qualities for sale in the store. Great name brand manufacturers down to craft store quality such as Springs Creative. I buy a ton of Riley Blake fabrics from them. I also get my battings by the roll there. They have the best price.

    I LOVE Dream Cotton! It is identical to Moda Bella Solids, and according to my salesman is it made in the same factory. Perhaps it's even the same thing, sold under two names? They have another solid line called Smoothie, but it's lighter weight than the Dream Cotton. Dream Cotton is very high quality.

    I spent the day scouring the $2.99 flat folds and found lots of great name brand manufacturer's mill ends. I didn't even look much at the wholesale, and didn't see the Kaufmann Batiks at all. All good tho, I spent too much $$ as it was....

    OnebyOne, there's a great little barbecue place called Fox Creek Barbecue, not 5 minutes away from Marshall's. I always eat there. Next time you go, try it out!

    I am so envious of you in the US when I read how cheap fabric is compared to here in Australia.

    We use to go eat at Julies on the water but it was closed for a long time and never opened when we go. I'll try the Barbeque place next. My sew group is going again in a few weeks. Thanks!

    I have been shopping at Marshalls since before they were a big store, about 30 years. I seldom buy anywhere else.

    You must live nearby... lucky you! I would love to go more often but they are a 6 hour drive (one way) for me.
