Found fabric in two Super Walmarts last month, Great. So happens they came back when the new JoAnn's super store opened? Hmmmm Yesterdays mail brought my usual weekly paper for Sealy and see what was inserted!

Just got home from our Walmart and still no fabric yet but I did find the crafts dept manager and ask if, indeed, there are plans to bring back fabric here and she said, "YES!" Doing the happy dance!

We got fabric back at ours too. I am absolutely thrilled to have a choice of where to purchase fabric again!

Here are some comments from Walmart's site.

~~CrystalSword (08/27/2011)
Walmart is in the process of bringing fabric back to many of its stores, talk to the manager and see how soon it will be back in your store!

~~Nohandle (08/28/2011)
Unfortunately I don't sew but learned on a local website the Fabric Department was being returned to the two local Walmart Superstores. From what I understood it was because of the complaints and threats that those customers would not return for all those other purchases they made while shopping for fabric.

And, after-all, they do SELL sewing machines - don't they? I'm going to call several stores and see what the managers have to say about bringing fabric back.
