    Run, don't walk to Michaels. They are discontinuing their fabric bundles (4 FQ) I've cleared out two local Michaels so far paying $0.49 for the bundle. I've bought everything they had!!! So if you live near Ann Arbor or Brighton in Michigan don't bother, I wiped them out. I bought 14 bundles of 4 FQ's each for a total of $6.86 Can't beat that!! That is 3-1/2 yds of fabric for less than a normal yard.

    Sometimes the fabric is hidden in with the yarn. I think they all carry the same basic items. Look for the sewing notions the fat quarters will be close by. At one store I found them on the back wall, at the other they were with the embroidery floss.

    I posted a pic yesterday of my Michaels trip. I bought 10 of them. I couldn't believe it.

    Thanks for the heads up. I went there today and got 7 bundles. The manager tried to tell me they weren't the ones on sale, but I matched the upc number to a price label and made him match it. I also got some single fat quarters for $0.49. Not as good of a deal, but it helps me get more stash up for my FWS. This is a great sale!! To bad that probably means that they will no longer have fabric.

    I just got back from Michaels. The fat quarter bundles were $1.49, not $.049. Each bundle had 5 FQs. I bought 13, all they had. The normal price was $9.99 so I saved, quite literally, a big bundle. The loose FQs were on sale for $.099, which didn't make sense and so I didn't buy any of them. Thank you so much for the heads up. I am thrilled to finally make a steal of a deal!

    I kind of looked at it as if I didn't buy it all the next person would. We have a fabric store (Hancocks) right around the corner so most local quilters wouldn't head to Michaels for fabric. I would have been crazy to pass it up for $20. If the loose fqs were only $.049 I probably would have bought them all as well although there weren't more than 15 or so of them.

    Our Michaels does not carry fabric. But, happy for you in your find!
