    I was in my Walmart today.....always check the fabric dept (It still has one, BTW....thank goodness!) Anyway, the fabric clerk had one side of her cutting table stacked very tall with fabrics she had marked down. These were all the better quality fabrics they carry!! Some were $4/yd and some a little lower.

    Tonight seems to be the night about posts about Walmart's Fabric department on these boards, LOL. This is at least either the 3rd or 4th I've seen about the sales and another about the potential for the fabric departments to return back to the stores that no longer have them. Something's in the water I think, LOL... Maybe this is a good sign that we will have the power of persuasion in our collective thoughts that there will be truth to the return of the departments soon!

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    I saw some lovely fabrics at a Walmart in Utah when I was there last week. Big variety too. I wish our stores here in Vegas still had fabrics. Boo hoo!

    I worked tonight (Walmart) and started taking a LOT of mark downs on the regular fabric! Down anywhere from a 40 cent to 94 cent mark down, some down even more. Prequilted that was nearly $10 per yard is now $7 per yard.

    Not sure what it all means. I know last time we marked a lot of the 'regular' fabric down we got a new plan-o-gram and a lot of new fabric. I hope that is what it means this time.

    Also being marked down - binding, ribbons, and more!

    Happy shopping the sale!

    From Walmart today, I purchased some Christmas panels for a quilt and some fall fabric today for a family tree I want to make. Great deals!

    These mark downs are on the regular fabrics not just the Christmas!

    If anyone likes the $5.00 bolts from Walmart, ours in Kingsport, TN on Ft. Henry Drive had a huge display this evening. It looked really nice and had some rather pretty patterns, mostly floral and babies/childrens. I almost bought some but I am going to the quilt shop in Jonesborough tomorrow and need to save my money.

    The one in JC has a TON of the $5.00 bolts. We have one 'dump bin' full but it will be full for a long time - as it sells we keep filling it up with what we have.

    Also a LOT of mark downs on our regular fabric that we carry, not just the seasonal yardages.

    Happy shopping!

    I noticed today that the Walmart in Hanover on the Golden Mile had a lot more fleece and cotton "quilter's cotton" they called it! Later in the morning paper I also saw there is a Target to open in July and maybe a Hobby Lobby. MAYBE that is why the fabric is getting nicer!

    I do know Walmart fired the guy who had the bright idea of getting rid of the fabric department. I'm torn about them bringing it fabric back since the mom and pop stores have stepped up to the plate in my area to provide fabric and notions beyond what Walmart would think of offering
