    We have 3 wal-marts within driving distance from our town. Two of which have done or are doing away with their fabric department. Yesterday, my MIL and I went to Wabash to Wally world (as we call it :] ! ) They had a huge clearance of their year end fabrics, the good ones not the normally cheap anyway's. Not only did I boost my stash, I also found out that they get to keep their fabric department!

    Nice haul! Is the Kokomo Walmart getting rid of fabric?? The one near me (Logansport) hasn't had fabric since they switched it to a supercenter.

    Craftybear and Qbee and I went shopping at that same Walmart. :mrgreen:

    Wabash still has lots for sale, we didn't come close to cleaning them out! I'm not sure about Kokomo but, I would think so, since they had that huge Joann's store open right next door, and they have an amazing clearance section to! If in doubt I'm sure you could just call and ask. They have always been really nice about answering questions so you don't waste a drive.

    That Joann's isn't all that huge IMO. It is huge compared to the Logansport store (what isn't??) but after having been to the ETC store in Castleton they all look small now in comparison. lol. But at least the Kokomo J's is in a more convenient place now and better than when it was on the other side of town.

    Craftybear was just talking about the Kokomo store having fabric in chat last night. Other than Wabash and Logansport, what is the other store you go to?

    I mostly go to Joann's in Logan, but if I'm headed to Kokomo anyway I'll go to their joann's. Yesterday was the first time I've actually bought material from Wal-mart, but I've only been quilting for 6 mths or so :) Yes, Kokomo's Joann's is huge compared to Logan's. What's the ETC store? Where else do you go?

    Those are beautiful fabrics. Looks like a great haul to me. I wish our Walmart would bring back their fabrics.

    The ETC is Joann's ETC. Like a supercenter but for fabric. They had about 3 cutting tables, a big area for classes, and way more fabric than regular Joann's does! And I mostly buy Kona Cotton solids at Joann's and they had a bunch more colors than the Logansport store has. They also had a lot of jelly rolls, precut packs, etc. and kits.

    There is a quilt store in Winamac too but they don't have a lot of prints that I like (I'm mostly into bright colors). I read about a shop in Rochester but I've never looked into it. I haven't been to the one in Kokomo yet but I have been to Rossville (great shop) and the other ones in Wabash, plus North Manchester and two in Lafayette.

    You'll have to go to the one stop quilt shop hop at the events center in Kokomo this summer. The info is here:

    I looks like you have a very nice addition to your stash now.
    I keep holding my breath that one of the Wally Worlds in our area gets to keep fabric. Our closest store is a smaller walmart and doesn't carry fabric.

    Nice addition to your stash. It's funny how some WM have fabric and some got rid of it. Our local WM just added tons of fabric to their department.

    our walmart no longer carries fabric. I must have signed a million petitions but it didnt do any good. I used to get material for 1$ a yard. I miss it so much~

    Hi everyone I am from Delphi near Lafayette. Another great shop in our area is called Quilters Harvest . It is in a old church building as you are heading out of Lafayette towards Attica .The people that work there are very nice and great fabric selection.

    Yes-they still sell fabric there. Or at least they did the last time we were there.

    I think so to. I never even thought of hobby lobby! I might have to go do some looking this week! I think our bank account was safer when I thought we only had a couple different places to go!

    Mine too. If it wasn't for this board I wouldn't have a clue of places to go.
