    Went shopping at Walmart In Garden City, Ks (near where I live) got material for $5 a bolt. Wish I had known this earlier I would have gotten more and taken more money with me. Of course Hubby needed lumber for his projects so we both got something. Good thing we took the pickup.

    Where are you from? I was raised in Garden City. Lived there from 1967 to 1982. I went back there in 2003 and I was shocked at how much it had changed.

    Most generic, $5 bolt fabrics sold at WM are garment types. Did you find any cottons?

    My local Wal Mart also gets these every once in a while. And yes most are garment types, but I have managed to find several cottons. The cotton sells very quickly. There are only 5 yds on the bolts I get @ my wal mart. Wouldn't it be great to get the 15 yd bolts @ that price. Haha

    You're luck to have your Walmart still carry bolt fabrics. The WMs in our area only have 2 yd pieces, jelly rolls, etc. Wish they would bring back a nice fabric dept.

    They had all kinds of material in a big bin so all you had to do is go wild and help yourself.

    Did you put on protective gear so you didn't get innocently elbowed, poked by all those other wild ladies? LOL

    No, but I know the Old Push, Shove and Grab. Then run away as fast as you can.

    I lived in Garden City from October of 1985 to April of 2000 and then again from September of 2005 to July of 2008. The last time I was in that Walmart they were in the middle of a remodel. I figured they'd lose their fabric department.

    For good quality, inexpesive fabric in Garden City go to "Knot Sew Perfect Quilts." It's between Walmart and the bypass on Mary St. She's not like most quilt shops but she has older fabrics at a really reasonable price. Most of her fabric was $3 or $4 a yard.

    It'll be a while before we get to go again mostly due to the weather, but will put it on my list of places to stop. I can save some more money to take with me. Thanks for the tip.

    You're lucky. My Walmart did away with their fabric department about 2 years ago. The only thing they have in their craft department now is scrapbooking stuff and cake making things. So I went to another Walmart about 45 minutes away, and shortly after that, they did away with their fabric department.

    My LQS is wonderful, but they don't carry a lot of the fabric I want and they don't have many 'goodies' (patterns, books, notions, etc.) so I don't go there often. I go to Joanne's when I really need something. I guess I do a lot of my fabric buying online.

    The reason that particular Walmart still has fabric is there's not a single Jo-Ann's in southwestern Kansas. There's one Hobby Lobby but it's in Dodge City.
