For the second time (I should have known better) I had fabric in my cart while I was trying to make up my mind on something else to meet the $50 free shipping limit. I kept checking back for more fabric and then the sale fabric I wanted was not longer available! It was gone from my cart but other items were still there. I was disappointed as I really wanted this fabric. I called the store and at first the girl who answered said that they had lots of it. I told her I couldn't find it on the website. She said it should be there but then couldn't find it either. She said something about their "kitting it up" but that didn't register. I asked her if they were out of this fabric now and she said that it must have sold out.
Well, I checked today, two days later and found the fabric again (and promptly ordered). I remember this happened once before and I thought at the time that I must have done something wrong on the site for it to have disappeared and then reappear about a week later.
So, my advice is get it while you can, but if it seems to be sold out it just might not be. I can't think that they would have gotten new bolts of $3.44 a yard fabric in. Some of their clearance fabric has been listed for a long time so I don't know how much they order.
Anyway I have placed my order and next time I won't wait a few days and it could have sold out.

They will take your fabric out if you have it in your cart more than a couple of days and someone else wants it. It happened to me too.
