    Has anyone been to Marshall Dry Goods in Batesville, Ar?
    Were you pleased? Do you know their hours? They are open to the public right? I've been looking at their fabric bundles on the website as well as other things. Looks interesting.

    according to their home page, you can get a real, live, genuine human being on the phone mon-fri, 8-5 CST.

    they have a 98.5% customer satisfactory rating on ebay. that's pretty darned good.

    YES~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got 70 yards of NAMEBRAND fabric for under $100.00. Seriously. Then I went back and got 30 more yards. They have a lot of variety of fabric. I prefer Moda, Freespirit, Kaufman, some of the bigger names and they had a ton of that stuff, along with not-so-fancy of names of fabric. They have the SWEETEST ladies that work there. So kind.

    In fact, I just got thru telling my husband I am ready to go back there and see what they have going on after Christmas.

    (Ps. I live in Conway).

    Also, I have pics taken on my first trip. I'm posting below. The stacks of fabrics is what I actually bought for 1.98 a yard.

    Wow mysacrifice! That's awesome! Wonder what it would raise the price per yard to for me to actually visit the store? ~giggle~

    I've ordered from them online...quick and very reasonable!

    I love about an 1 1/2 away and have never been there! Oh the shame! I keep saying I need to go. I have ordered from the website and have no complaints about the fabric at all. Marshall's is a fabric distributor and many quilt shops get their fabric from them. The flat fold bundles are an excellent value. Here is the website:

    Two of sisters go there regularly. They live closer than I do. We have been planning a road trip soon though. Now I am really motivated to go after reading these comments.

    The bundles is mainly what I'm interested in. Are you happy with them when you get home? No surprises? Like lots of flaws, etc?

    Those prices are sooooo low. I know manufacturers make different quality of fabrics. For example, they will make a "quilt shop only" run, and a lesser quality for distribution at say Joanne's. Do you think these are not the "quilt shop only" lines that they carry? I don't see how they could sell it so inexpensively if they aren't!! I'd really appreciate feedback on this because my oh my, these prices are simply amazing!!!

    I ordered the Hollyhock fabric from Northcoft about a year ago for $8.99 a yard. I ordered a yard of the same fabric from Marshall's just now for $3.99 I did this to see if there was any difference in the quality. I'll let you know.

    Shipping is rather high so take that in consideration when ordering a small amount.

    I look all through their site....hard to find any that were in stock.
    I hate it when I find lots of pretty fabric and they don't show how many yds. are in stock until you click on the image to get the details.

    If there is an add to cart under the fabric it is in stock, if only the price listed then it's out of stock. Seems like all the popular lines sell out fast.

    Yes it is wonderful place to visit and stay a long time. I have been there with my sister who gets to buy wholesale, you make an appointment and are taken around the store ( back part) and negotiate the price. Of course you do have to take the entire bolt. It was a fun day, I hope to get there again someday when I visit my sister in Missouri.
