    Went to Walmart last night, they had no Christmas fabric. I asked the sales person she said they haven't got any in yet. I think I had problems getting Christmas fabric, about this time last year. Wonder why they wait so long to get it out on the shelves. They had tons of other fabric............Michele

    A lot of the Walmart stores are in the process of putting fabric back into their stores...maybe they just weren't thinking "Christmas"...

    One of ours has had it for quite awhile. Not sure about the other one which is just putting fabric in their store.

    We have always had a fabric dept. in our Wal-mart. Their fabric moves really well. As of last week, most all their Christmas fabric was sold out. Just little pieces left on a few bolts. About a month ago they were well supplied, though.

    Our Wal-mart has some Christmas fabric, but not all that much. Maybe 10 bolts or so. I wonder if they are afraid to invest too much in such a seasonal fabric. Other fabric that doesn't sell can set around a long time, but Christmas fabric in July is not cool.

    I don't think they "think" period. It was pretty obvious to me to me that the idiot in charge of my store is a guy. Now don't get me wrong. I don't think all guys are idiots. Just my WM manager. He has changed our store around 3 times in the past 5 years. You have to go on a treasure hunt to find anything. Related items, such as ingredients for baking, are not together in the grocery department The "craft" area where the precuts were, was picked clean except for a few FQ. I kept sticking notes on the empty metal holders and asking them when they were going to restock. Finally after almost 2 months they got precuts back in. They are stiff and not pretty at all. Guess I'll have to keep driving for my fabric. Our WM is only interested in tourist dollars and don't care about the locals. That is OK. I have quit going to WM from 2-3 times a week to 1-2 times a month. I'd rather spend my money somewhere else. I sure miss Sam.

    Our Walmart took the fabric department out totally. No news if they are going to put it back in.

    Our Joanns is still closed from Irene and our Walmart does not carry Fabric yet and none of there staff I spoke to seemed to know anything about them getting it back. Thank goodness the is Ebay and quilt shops on line so I can purchase Fabric.

    Same here. We've had Xmas fabric for about two months. Not a big choice........about 10 to 12 selections. They weren't very inspiring. Doesn't anyone in their corporate sewing section sew?
