    I went to Marshalls dry goods in Batesville, AR. It was amazing. If you ever get within 100 miles you should go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You'll buy, you won't be able to resist their prices. When I was there in June their batiks were on sale for $2.99 a yard. There's also the "Red Sign" warehouse across the parking lot that has second available for $1 a pound if you take the whole piece. They have 17 5yd cuts of blenders bundled up for $102. If you go to the left after going in the main warehouse, all the way through the large open doors the fabric is really inexpensive---wholesale pricing but anyone can buy it. Any time you take all that's left on a bolt it's cheaper too. If there's anything you're looking for and willing to take it in multiple 5yd cuts, sometimes it's as low as $1.95 a yd. I was looking for a lot of Bear prints and bought 4 5yd pieces for $1.95 a yard. If you purchase more than you can haul they will ship it for you. Of course you have to pay for shipping but still, it will be cheaper than LQSs. They also cut generously. No 36" yards there. They usually cut 40" yds. The woman waiting on me said it was because they might not always cut straight and want to make sure their customers are able to get straight yard out of the fabric. I'm already planning next year's vacation to include a side trip to Batesville. I'm also going to take a LOT more money with me.

    That is great!

    I have sisters in Monroe and Newport, Mi. I'm trying to get them to plan an extended shop hop. Since we're all getting some age on us about one big hop is all we can manage so I figured if they come to Illinois then we can "hop" down to Arkansas. Right? I've got it all planned out. They drive down here one day, we leave the next and go to Batesville, check into a motel, the next day we could spend the entire day at Marshalls, the next day come back home. That way we don't have to take more than an overnight bag and it would leave plenty of room for fabric. They aren't so crazy about the idea. Plan a vacation around it. It's right on the SE corner of the Ozarks. There's caves (Blanchard Caverns) about 45 minutes from there, canoeing on the White River, and a lot of other things to do.

    I'm really hoping that I will be able to go with Mom and her friend when they do go. Does anyone know if they have any of the Original raggedy ann and andy fabrics? Also, I am in need of several yards of light colored fabrics for backgrounds on a couple of quilts that I have planned, so I'm hoping that IF I get to go that I can afford at least that. :)
