    Did you leave any fabric for the other Fab-ro-holics?

    I couldn't help it, the fabric was $1.00 a yard. they are redoing the dept. so they had a huge selection at $1.00 yd. I thought it would be the see-thru heavily sized/starched material I was surprised when it was decent .......Yes, I left quite a bit behind for other fabricholics. The lady in the dept. said that they had more in the back of the store, should they bring it out I told her that she wasn't going to be able to sleep with the trigger finger from cutting so much fabric and she will be hearing 3 yards in her sleep. bless her heart.

    Wow, I was Walmart yesterday and was beating myself up for buying 25 dollars worth of fabric. Our store just
    expanded their fabric section and had a large amount on sale for $2 a yard. Many of the fabrics are sold at
    the Jo-annes here. I was so happy to see the expansion as the threat of discontinuing crafts is always present.
    I love fabric....

    They had the same sale here. I was fingering it thinking it was really nice material, but I stopped myself as I have alot of fabric that will keep me busy for at least the next 3 years plus there was a line at the cutting table.

    Did they need to call the extra beefy stock boy to help you get it to your car?.... What fun with all that fabric.

    I wonder if all the Walmarts are having the same sale. I was just there yesterday but didn't go near the fabric dept. Oh well, maybe I can think of some reason to go today.

    Great find! I have bought some nice fabrics in recent months at Wal-mart. One thing I recommend is that you PRE-WASH all the fabrics as I have found some pieces that will shrink a substantial amount when washed!! And it was fabric that looked like pretty nice quality. Just wanting to share with you. I'm all for great deals, too!

    Well Barri1, I was thinking... this fabric goes with that fabric and wouldn't that look cute in the babies room. oooooh I could make curtains with this. I'm getting that to start a quilt for ME, and don't those butterflies look cute. etc.
    On top of everything else I had my Mother with me who also quilts, she's retired and has a limited income, so she knows that she can come by and "shop" in my sewing room anytime she wants. If she looked at bolt of fabric I made sure I got some, I can unlike it later. but for now I think I'm done getting fabric Hubby is reinforcing the 2nd 4X8 bookcase for me, he is such a sweetheart. I wonder how long it would take him to make me a 3rd one?

    You saved money by buying it at that price. Others will be buying it at $6-$8 a yard (that's what the price for better fabric at our new Walmart fabric dept now). When I find fabric for a drastic price cut it's not uncommon for me to buy $300 or more at one time. It's fun!
    Got fabric?

    Dimondee, could you be a little more specific about the location of the WalMart you got so lucky at? I live half way between Binghamton and Syracuse. Thinking it might be well worth a little ride...... Also, your hubby might want to reinforce the floor joists too under the sewing room with a mother lode like that! Congrats on your winderful find.

    And I thought my Wally world haul was bad! Or do I mean good? LOL! I found all kinds of nice yardage on clearance. Did you see the Simplicity rotary cutter machine for $15!! I had to snatch that up!

    Enjoy your goodies!

    If we all lived closer we'd have to come over and have a fabrific party to celebrate! lol That's a substantial haul!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
