    I buy WonderUnder fusible web by the bolt at Walmart for 1.27 per yard. Is there any place online that can compete with this price? Since all Walmarts seem to be doing away with their fabric depts. I'm gonna have to find another source. :-(

    Yes, their doing away with their fabric departments just frosts my butt!! My favorite town to shop in down in SD has no fabric stores that I can find and WM took theirs out and put in stuff like party supplies in that space.

    I can't help with the fusible web as I haven't bought any of that since I quit sewing garments.

    I don't think you can get it cheaper anywhere else without having to pay a lot on shipping. I can not find it anywhere localy, not even Walmart, and we have a fabric department here. If you are concerned about then doing away without it, I would go and buy a lot of it. Better safe then sorry.

    That is a pain. No fabric stores. :cry: It makes me want to cry. I get mine from the local fabric store here. If you need some maybe we can work something out. I'll get it and send it to you.

    I found a couple of places that sell on-line:
    Mini-bolt (10 yds) for $22.95, I did not check shipping/handling.

    http://www.shoppellon.com/index.php?...roducts_id=218

    They have a whole list of different weights too :) : http://www.shoppellon.com/index.php?...8955243117ce85

    www.Quilting-Warehouse.com has a listing too:

    Have you checked J. Hittle online site? Many people here have recommended their prices for items. I've not used them myself.

    I think you should buy as much as you can at your local walmart.

    Quilting Warehouse (link above) is the best price I have found online. It's 1.714 per yard for a full bolt (35 yds for 59.99). It's 2.20 per yard at my LQS.

    Do you have a Joann's? Maybe you could get a good deal by buying a large amount and using a 40 or 50% off coupon. I haven't bought any there in ages so I am not sure what it costs. Just an idea.

    I would try Joanne's online...their prices are pretty comparable to in the stores. I don't know where else would be cheap.

    The 35 yard bolt is 74.99 at JoAnn.com. With a 40% coupon that's 1.29 a yard, with a 50% coupon it would be 1.07 a yard. I think we have a winner!!

    SaS2 is much gummier to sew through, even the Lite version. I used to use it all the time, but switched to Wonder Under about six months ago and will never go back again! :-D

    I recently made an appliqued crazy chicken quilt for oldest grand daughter. I used the prepackaged regular weight and then went and bought the lite weight. After ironing all pieces on, none of my 3 sewing machines would stitch good on edges. It all came out too stiff and made them get all out of whack (tension, top & bottom) and sticky stuff on needles. I ended up doing all sewing by hand and even that was a pain in the butt as it was so hard to get needle thru but after appliquing almost 20 blocks I did not want to throw them out so I did old fashioned blanket stitch. Won't buy anymore prepackaged. Don't have that problem with the stuff I buy by the yard at local Walmart. So far our walmart is still carrying fabric and every time I go in I guy something in that dept to help with their sales totals as I don't want it to close down.

    ghost...I read your comment about the gumminess of the SAS2...I used that also (I like that its sticky on both sides)...but this last time, I had lots of gum on my needle and I'm thinking that is probably not good for my machine. I've seen some WonderUnder used in the IRR centers and I've always thought it was too stiff for my liking. I'm still pretty new to lots of stuff...is there a fusible web that is sticky and not gummy and not stiff??? Am I asking too much?? :roll:

    When I started my knitting class in 2005, we found out that Wal-Mart was going to get rid of their fabric and yarn. We got an 800# from the clerk and inundated them with calls complaining, then we started buying from them. They got the message and did not remove the fabric or yarn. They are even remodeling the department in February. The new Wal-Marts in the area do not have fabrics and yarns. But here we have convinced ours to keep those items.

    Although I purchase most of my fabric at other places. Our Quilt Guild likes to take day/road trips to purchase fabrics for specific projects, but we still make purchases of substantial quantities at Wal-Mart to justify the department. One Wal-Mart is close to our extension office where we meet so it is a quick trip to make emergency purchases.
