    My husband had surgery yesterday and there was a walmart close to the hospital. I waited patiently for them to take him to OR and ran for my car.

    They had alot of fabric for sale at 1.00 & 1.50 per yard. Over 200.00 later..... he was out of recovery, in a room and explained to the Dr. that their must be a Walmart close!

    He's doing fine and comes home today!

    Terrible after 30 years of marriage he knows me so well.

    Hope the surgery was for something not too serious. Hope he's doing well. I was at Walmart yesterday and checked the fab department and they only had a few bolts of clearence stuff so I found one (only 1) that I liked so I took it to the cutting table but no one ever showed up to cut it for me so I left.

    Why waste time, sitting around the hospital waiting room?? What could you do? Catch some really nasty bug? I say that you took lemons and made lemon aid!! :P
    You are a true inspiration :!:

    I hate waiting for someone to have surgery, usually it is several hours! I go for a walk or shopping if something is nearby. My MIL thinks that is awful.:)

    Yup that happens in my walmart too. I know a person who needed the fabric and when no one showed up she cut her own and took the bolt and all to the front and let them deal with it. And she had even told another lady and this other lady (I don't know) did the same. I later heard them in front that they hated when that happened and they needed to keep someone back there.

    The last time I bought fabric at Walmart it took forever for someone to come wait on me. I found the scissors and cut my fabric and another customer's fabric. (Well, I did work at Hancock Fabrics in 1978...does that make me a professional?) If only I knew how to work that little computer machine to make the pricetag.

    This is hilarious. I can just see you burning rubber getting out of the hosp. parking lot. Sounds like me if there was a casino nearby.

    About 3 weeks ago while going to Jesup for my sew day with some ladies I stopped at the Walmart there since it was only 9 am and the same thing happened there. I just happened in when the craft dept. manager had put tons of bolts from 1 to 2.50 a yard on sale. In Hinesville it was full price for same bolts of fabric which was priced from $5.95 on up per yard.

    I loaded up as well and bought several different fabrics and some I took what was left on bolts. I spent about $150.

    They haven't had it since though with cotton fabrics. Now they have the fleece on sale in both towns down to about $4.44 a yard for fleece that retails for between $8 - $12 a yard. Haven't touched those yet hoping it will go down a bit more.

    Both Walmarts will loose there sewing department in next couple months so now they are starting to reduce prices.
