    Ofcourse fabric you silly quilters. They have 100 percent cotton fabric, solids that are nicely woven and soft for a $1.50 a yard. Just got it in this morning. I thought I would share cause I know there are some like me who got to buy fabric as cheap as possible.

    Hate to admit, but I get most of my fabric at walmart. Thankfully, ours is not planning on getting rid of fabric anytime soon. And the quilting fabrics are not supposed to be hit with the price hike. Just the more premium / specialty fabrics.

    You really have to watch what you get, but you can really get some great bargains on good fabric at WalMart. I've been going there for years, and if you're really careful you can get good stuff.

    I tell you what, the quilting fabric here went up - used to be $2 a yard for the "quilt of the month" fabric, then it went to $2.44 a yard and just this week went up to $2.97... so if your local wm didn't raise the "quilt" fabric count yourself lucky..

    Thanks for the info. I am all over the fabric of the month there - very nice for Walmart! At one time not so long ago it was all about price for me - now I am a little more selective.

    Just like everywhere, quality varies. Nothing wrong with a good quality fabric, no matter where it was purchased.

    Unfortuantely, (or fortunately), one of the wally worlds close to me is closing the fabric department. They had all of it marked 50% off this past weekend. I cleaned up! I bought over 50 yrds! I am choosey about my fabric but I found some great material for making market bags and my kids picked out material for pillowcases. I also bought material for kitchen accessories. These types of things don't have to last forever, and won't, so I didn't want to spend a lot on them. Although I have to say that some of what I got felt really nice!

    I got some too! here in Maine. The girls there told me our fabric department will be closing the next time they do a re-fit (6 months or so.) I don't get a lot there - but at $1.50 a yard - there is always room for more.

    If you buy Walmart fabric that's been marked down it's usually a good buy. The stuff that they get in and is originally priced at 1 or 1.50 is usually poly blends and isn't very good quality.

    Our WM quit selling fabric for two years and now they have two rows of it but it is like fat qtrs, jelly rolls, etc. prepackaged fabric. ANd notions of course. Not the same. Although their jelly rolls have 80 strips as opposed to the normal 42 like Moda, Fat qtr bundles are more too. SO good prices. I miss buying their solids for a dollar a yard. they came in handy for borders for my charity quilts. NOw about half of their stock is on sale for 25% off. Must not be selling good or just a good sale. LOL

    I will have to check them out. Haven't had much luck with Wal-mart lately. Hope to find some fabric in the 400 mile yard sale.

    When is the yard sale and when does it begin?
