    I found this site and love it. Our wal mart has already discontinued the fabric. But maybe through this site I can
    acquire the quits and fabric.http://www.aenathan.com/index.php?tmpl=quiltofthemonth

    with once the fabric departments have disappeared. Looks like here in the Baltimore area that will be sooner rather than later.
    Chances are if your store that is remodeling didn't have first a 25% off fabric sale; then 50% off fabric sale; and finally a 75% off sale prior to the start of the remodeling process you may be keeping the department.
    Have fun while it lasts.

    Here there was no dicsount on fabric at W M.
    They took what they had and totted it off to the nearest, other W M.
    I wanted to buy 10 yeard of something and one I picked out had about 3 different cuts of material. All the same print, but 2 were remenants from other rolls.
    Only thing discounted was the stuff that nobody wanted like the lace and satan stuff.

    I found a working camera. I try to buy one fabric I really don't like that much because this helps me to be more creative. The large pink floral is the one I don't really like. The top two are my favorites.

    I went to mine today after this posting. The fabric dept. was there a month ago. Now it's gone. In its place are a bunch of garbage cans. Interesting..

    I have been in contact with a gentleman at Nathan. I'll have to go to another PC to get his info, I'll PM that to you. Here's the scoop: You can buy the quilt of the month fabrics directly from Nathan ... here's the catch - you have to order full bolts of each fabric in that months project. Prices were reasonable - even though I buy extra (more than the pattern calls for)each month that's still a LOT of fabric. I could use up a full bolt each month of ONE of them by using it as my backing fabric, but that sure would make for a LOT of extra fabric especially when the pattern calls for maybe only 0.75 yard (that does occasionally happen too) of one fabric.

    You could gauge interest here, and hold a coop. Like, figure out how many "sets" could be made from the bolts, then offer it to the first X members, and they pay you up front. You order, and redistribute. I dunno if that would work...but it seems like it would!

The fabric clerk told me not many Walmarts carry the quilt of the month fabric with free quilt pattern every month. She said it was ordered separate from a buyer that contacts the store fabric manager. It's up to the fabric manager if the line is carried in the store if the store sells fabric. The fabric dept manager at this store is a quilter! I think that makes a big difference in how profitable the fabric sales are. Most of the craft/fabric managers have no interest, just doing a job.
    When fabric manufacturers test colors, pattern etc. and it is not perfect, they may sell it to other stores like WalMart and Joanns. They may use the same quality fabric as their first quality, but very often do not. So eventhough the print may be the same, it may not be the quality fabric you anticipate. That's not to say it's going to be terrible, just not first quality.

    I know that Walmart's prices are usually very good - however, if we truly care about each other, and most quilters do, it is important to keep in mind that Walmart does not treat their help as they should and are not unionized and do help lead to the downfall of many other small stores

    Pam, By any chance, are you any where near Mt. Carmel?
    Are there any two or four lane roads running to there? I may be up that way later this summer and would like to know. Thank you. Sherry McD

    I'm not positive but I think generally 10 - 15 yards...
    Good Luck,
    Cathy

    Most of the craft/fabric managers have no interest, just doing a job.
    ----------------------------------
    And so are the clerks there, just doing a job with no interest in actually
    being a "sales" clerk.

    I bought most of two pieces of fabric that I'd had good results with
    before, two yards of each. One had lots of material left, but after asking
    for two yards, I was surprised to see her cutting off what must have been
    only a quarter yard. And she casually rewrapped it and tossed it into the
    return bin. If I had been faster, or she smarter, I would have taken that
    extra bit of fabric, and I'm shocked she had not been trained to ask before
    cutting off that extra bit.
