    Yes, I have one near me. I don't buy or use anything Fons and Porter any more because they have gotten too big for their britches; liked them better before their egos got the best of them. I have gotten a couple jelly rolls at Tuesday Morning, but found when I got them home that there were only 5 different designs in them and not an equal repeat of them in the 35 strips. The fabric quality isn't great either, so I won't be buying them again. I do like the store for household items; can get great deals on fry pans, etc.

    Tuesday Morning is hit and miss. I'd stay away from any of the "fabric" they sell. Sub standard jelly rolls and fat quarters are all I have seen. I have gotten some good buys on rulers and Ott lights so look for stuff like that. They do have awesome deals on linens, luggage, household items and lawn and garden stuff. If you find something you like though you need to grab it, their inventory changes daily and moves out quickly. You never know what you are going to see when you go.

    I'll have to check it out. I have one near me but its so unorganized and pack full of stuff I try and avoid it. Also most of the time I don't really see any good deals because everything is a knock off or cheap brand.

    I have found quite a few good quilting things at Tuesday Morning. Not fabric but pins and that sort of thing. Much cheaper then at the fabric stores. My daughter got a huge cutting mat for only 6.99. I was with her but she saw it first and would not let me have it. Silly girl. It was a good brand, but I forget which one.

    definately worth going. You never know what you'll find. Just started having quilting items about 6 months ago at the one in our area - great price on fat qtr's when they have then as well as jelly rolls - fabric quality seams good I have made a couple baby quilts from their fabric. There is one in Frankfort KY, and one in Lexington also.

    Great place to shop for wedding gifts and the such. many items such as sheets are high quality at a good price.

    I do. I don't really like the quality of the fabric they carry. I have picked up some really beautiful boxes and note cards from them! My mother bought me a Ott light floor lamp from them for Christmas.

    I like the one near me but don't go often enough to find much I'd like to buy. I do like their outdoor iron decorations....always a big selection.

    I checked the one in St. Louis last week, and the jelly rolls and fabric they had was the exact same as at my WalMart. The quality was really poor. The scissors they had I had never heard of and they only had a very small amount of things.
