Thread: Fabric on the Bolt

    Hi I'm from Alabama, and I was wondering if anyone knows if Wal Mart will bring back a full department on the fabric and have it on the bolt or will it be in package. Everyone needs to e-mail Wal Mart and ask for the fabric on the bolt. That will be a lot better, because we use to get in some good $1.50 and $2.00 a yd material. And what I seen at another store was in packages. So please, lets try to get the bolts and full fabric department back.

    Our Walmart has lots of fabric and polar fleece. They finally put in better shelving to show it off. They need a better selection of thread and zippers.

    We got our WM fabric dept. back. They have bolts. The dept. is still setting-up and there seems to be more variety than before they closed the old fabric dept. The cutting table is too small, the gals have to put a shopping cart next to it to accomadate the bolt they are cutting. Time for some more input by the people who cut!

    Hello and welcome from central Alabama. Our local Wal-Mart said they will not be getting it back on the bolt. Don't know how it will work.

    Yes, I also read that on the internet just a couple of days ago. I surely hope they do bring it back to all the WM's.

    hello and welcome from south Mississippi...I too called Bentonville and was told no more fabric except the fq and precut, then last week on this board a lady stated she read it in the New York times that wally world would bring back fabric. Mrs. Walton was the person responsible for the fabric departments in the stores, she is probably not HAPPY with the nuts running the business now.

    Welcome to the board! You'll really enjoy it here.

    You might take a look at this recent thread on the board. There's hope on the horizon.

    I am wondering if they will bring it back in certain areas and not in others. We have many places to buy fabric in my area, so perhaps their sales were not what they needed to dedicate that much floor space for fabric. One store has none any more and another has a very limited amount. it all boils down to their sales, I am sure. We HAve the wonderful Fabric Depot (Fabricdepot.com) , large JoAnn's and probably more quilt shops than many other areas of the US.

    Hi and welcome from VA. Our WM had just downsized and then (thankfully) fabric bolts started returning and now they're really full and the fleece is in great big wire wire bins.
