    Marshalls Dry Goods-Fabric quality

    Just checking out Marshalls Dry Goods. Their prices on fabric are just too good to be true. Has anyone ordered fabric from them. What did you think about the quality. I especially was looking for blending colors.

    I go to the warehouse a lot. All name brand fabric except Moda or batiks is there. They do have tye dye. They have every fabric quality from A - Z. If you order a name brand fabric you will be getting that brand's quality. Many shop owners are there filling up their vans and SUVs. You can buy by the bolt or by the yard. You get shop owner prices if you buy the bolt, just have to pay taxes and whatever else if you don't have a tax ID. You can be put on their wholesale email list to see all the new arrivals of fabric and prices every week. Just ask Sharon to add you to the list, email her. mdgsharon@swbell.net
    Got fabric?

    Ditto. I order ALL of my batting from there. Fabric is great, service is great, delivery time usually a week.

    I have never ordered from them. I will check out their website.

    I just purchased some fabric from them that was considerably cheaper than the exact same thing I got from another source. I will definitely shop there often!

    I have ordered 2 x now for backing, one was wide and the other regular width. The quality and price was excellent for backings for my quilts.

    We took a road trip a couple of years ago and DH planed a side trip by Batesville just for me. If you ever go there, make sure you have lots of time to shop and maybe a good book for your ride to read. DH sat on the husband bench and waited for me.

    You get better prices when you actually visit the warehouse. I was there right after the owner slashed some prices. One beautiful fabric I got for $1.67 a yard. Bought six yards of it. Also got some really pretty floral fabric for $2 a yard!

    If you ever get to go anywhere near Batesville, Arkansas you must go by(buy) there!

    I'm still kicking myself for not buying some white minkee that had a rose design on it.

    These are very pretty and I have seen them in the warehouse but not the batiks I think of like Hoffman. These are more graphic and highly colorful. They seem more in the tie dye line to me. And I have quiet a lot of them!
    Got fabric?

    You are absolutely right. I have used these for backings and they do great. I agree Hoffman's are the best!

    I too have ordered from them twice. One of the fabrics was not a full yard. I called them and without any questions, they sent me a new piece.
    Great place to buy fabric.

    I'm lucky to live in Little Rock, Ark., which is less than two hours from Marshall's in Batesville -- so it's a fun trip for us quilting gals. We always find plenty of fabric to make the trip worthwhile -- and we always have lunch at Elizabeth's Restaurant, which is only five blocks or so away. (YUMMY hot rolls!) It's closed on Mondays. So -- fabric and food! What's not to love?

    I've purchased from them several times and been very happy. They also have an eBay store with even better prices on large cuts. I've gotten some good deals from there, too.

    I live in Batesville and shop at Marshall's a great deal. They carry major manufacturers and the prices are good. I have to fight myself to keep from over shopping!

    I'm glad you posted this question! I was wondering the same thing the other day but hadn't had a chance to pose the question.

    I go there every chance I get. I live 200 miles from there and when I get to go I try to get a lot. They also have $1.00 tables. I have foundsome real good buys on them and have got as much as 8 yards in a piece. It is my favorite place to shop.

    Thanks for this information. I had never heard of Marshall's.
