    I bought some fabric at Joann's less than 3 weeks ago. I went in today to buy some more. I looked and looked and couldn't find it. Dang! So I drove down to the next Joann's and looked there. Still no luck. This time a nice lady helped me look for it. She couldn't find it either. And then she remembered that it was placed on the red tag table recently. She said that she thought that it had just been discontinued. So I continued my search and went to two other Joanns. Yes a total of 4 Joanns tonight plus a Walmart. With no luck :( I started my quest tonight around 530 and I just got home 4 1/2 hours later with no fabric. And a half a tank less than what I started with in my truck :( My husband and 4 year old son were quite the troopers tonight for tagging along with me.

    So I was hoping that one of you might have any idea where I could find this fabric. I have no idea where to even start looking on the internet. The bummer part is that I don't have any of the selvedge left. If any of you have any of this fabric I would gladly buy it from you. All I need is 1/4 yard. That's it. Just a little bit has caused me so much grief. Thank you so much!

    This fabric is for a bag that I am making for a customer. I had made a bag with this fabric for someone else and this lady just loved it. She wanted a bag for her little girl just like this one. I know I can tell her no that I don't have the fabric. But she has already paid and is so excited, I don't want to let her down. I apologize that the picture isnt the best but it is the best that I have.

    The big pink flowers are appliqued on. The fabric that I am looking for is underneath the appliqus. It is a pink and blue paisley on dark brown.

    Yes I did check online :( I didn't see. I am fairly certain that it is a calico print. But not entirely sure. I do look through all 18 pages of the calico fabrics and no such look :(

    If by chance you still have the receipt from your purchase Joann's can use the sku or whatever that number is to check all stores for stock. I ordered some running eights that had been marked down after they found some in Kansas.

    i recall reading a post - possibily here about a site where you can scan in a fabric and it will tell you where it an be found. I believe my memory is correct. Perhap someone else will remember it.

    I can check at my local Walmart as I think they have this fabric. This evening I am going near Joann's and can check for you. How much yardage do you need?

    I recently bought some fabric at JoAnn's and then decided that I needed another yard or 2. I couldn't find it for the longest time. I would check the 2 stores near me every week or so. No luck. Then I was just looking, probably 3-4 months later, and low and behold, there it was. Don't give up, maybe you will be lucky too.

    WOOHOO - I found it. It's Heidi Grace Designs-Reagan's Closet-Exclusively for JoAnn. They had it for $6.99 a yard. Are you sure all you need is 1/4 yard? PM your address and I'll send it. If you need more, not a problem. They had 2 bolts so I can always go back and get some more if you need it but I do have your 1/4.

    No problem, any excuse to go shopping :lol: Glad I was able to help. Want to see pictures when you're done.

    It's in an envelope ready to go to PO in the morning.
