    Where is Marshall Dry Goods? I might be able to visit it on a trip sometime. I went to the site, but saw the wholesale and thought "can't buy, no number" So it's good to know you can buy from wholesale.

    Yep, I asked the first time I was there. I got an extra discount once because a woman from St. Lewis, MO. was buying for a quilt shop there and somehow my bolt of fabric was added to her order. She bought me another bolt at her discount. She had a van full of fabric bolts! I forgot the name of the shop.

    It doesn't get any simpler than that. :D thanks!
    Now, I think a vacation is long over due to Arkansas... it was in the early 90's since we were there, and we loved every minute of it. The 5th wheel has a nice big basement so I shouldn't have any trouble finding space to pack YARDS and YARDS of fabric. I am sooo glad to find out about Marshalls! :mrgreen:

    check out their ebay store, too. it'll give you an idea of their prices on whole bolts.

    http://stores.ebay.com/Marshall-Dry-Goods-Co-Inc

    just a note ... i'd recommend against those "Quilters Blenders". at $3.49, they're not a value. i bought googobs of them a few years ago. they're very pretty to look at, but thin and stretchy. they don't shrink when you wash them but they do act strangely when you press them with a hot iron, whether you prewash them or not. wierd but true.

    however, if you can find them for around $2.50 a yard, you'd be getting what you paid for.

    Marshall's has different quality fabrics. I stay with the higher priced fabrics (still cheap) and it is quilt shop quality or what most quilt shops are buying from them and reselling. I look first for the end of the run flat folds of the name brands. I bought about all of the Jinny Beyer line there in flat folds.
