    At work today I was told that in Sept our department is ...............E X P A N D I N G!

    We are getting another aisle for fabrics at our Walmart! Love it!

    Not sure what fabrics we will be getting in, but do know that we will need room for the fleece that usually comes in.
    Plus in the pictures that I saw it was divided up really well, great signage and new items as well as more fabric!

    I'll let you all know more as I hear!

    Yay! I don't know what Walmart was thinking when they cut back on the crafting sections. People like to sew and craft and it's a growing industry.

    Our walmart has just been re-set and we still have our fabric on the bolt. The fabric prices have gone up as I expected with the lack of rain we have had this yr. We have had 38 days of triple digets already this yr and breaking records about everyday. 104 yesterday. No cotton and soon no beef unless we get some badly need rain.

    Colonial Heights has fabric. From what I've heard it's a small section. The one in Elizabethton just did a remodel and shrunk in size.

    The Wal Mart I shop at was making space for fabric Friday. I never see anyone buying the crafty stuff and flowers they had. I really don't need anymore fabric, but, who knows.

    I was able to get a quick look at some of the new pre-cuts that are coming in. I'm usually not one for pre-cuts. but these were really pretty!

    I also found out that the crafts will be moving up in front of our stationary/celebrations area and we are getting a full wall of fabrics, pre-cuts, vinyl (of some sort) plus more notions.

    So of the items are starting to come in and if they will let me do some rearranging I can fit it in to the space we have now ---- at least for a little while.

    We will wait and see what they let me do.

    My customers are excited!

    More details on the expansion!

    We are getting a lot more bolt fabrics in, more precuts, more batting and more notions! The area will be just for fabric and sewing!

    The crafts are also expanding but moving to another location in the store.

    The yarn is also changing it's location and going to carry kids yarn (? not sure what that will be).

    They will have to do some major moving of the aisles to make room for it, can't wait to have it done.

    Bad part is they are doing it during the time we are in the middle of counting yardage for inventory. THIS SHOULD BE FUN! ;)

    I'll share more as I find out!

    I got a preview of some of the notions that will be on the new set. It was like Christmas! So many new things that customers have been asking for! So many things that we (WM) never carried before!

    Can't wait!

    After much waiting tomorrow our reset is taking place. We went through three changes in how the overall layout was going to be before we were able to make it all fit.
    Tomorrow we are to have several associates in our department helping to set it. They plan to have it all done in 2 days!
    We are getting several really cute fabrics in for kids as well as other cottons and some that we used to carry are coming back in.

    Looking forward to it being all done so I can get to waiting on my customers with all the new selections!
