Everyone My friend and I went to Walmart earlier this week, all of their fabric was 50% off! We got some fabric for $1.00 a yard! I paid no more than $2.50 for any of the fabric that I purchased. I came out with 7 walmart bags crammed full.

According to the local reps Walmart is doing away with all of their fabric notions. They're now going to call that area the Celebration Station. Something to do with all of your party needs, etc.

Anyway, not all WallyWorlds have fabric departments but there are 2 in this area of Virginia that did/do. Be prepared to be patient or help cut your own! LOL

BTW, the fabric was actually quite nice, not all but most of it was good quality fabric.

I purchased all of my fabric to create charity quilts for kids this next year.

Happy Holidays

Oh crap...the 2 of the Wally worlds that I shop in still have fabric. Since they are in some really rural areas and there are NO other fabric stores within miles, I was hoping they would keep selling fabric. I hate it when I'm wrong. :cry: :cry:

Not all Walmarts are getting rid of fabric, from what I was told. Some are keeping it, some aren't. Guess it's the luck of the draw as to which is which. But,,,,ALL 4 Walmarts in Hawaii BETTER have their fabric! I intend to do ALOT of shopping while I am there!!

It may only be Walmarts where there are tons of Quilt Shops or Fabric Stores. The 2 clerks that waited on us this week just said all Walmarts as far as they knew.

There are 4 WallyWorlds within a 30 minute drive of where I live! Now the one in Madison Heights, VA doesn't have their fabric on Sale at 50% off. SO it may only be certain WallyWorlds.

I just wanted to pass on the savings :)

My Walmart is staying open as long as the sales stay high. A lot of the notins are no longer available....They do have sewing machines and some new ones are coming in right after xmas.

Earlier this week I found some nice xmas fabric that just came in...It was all quilt store value...only they are from abt 3 years ago. Our store has been getting a lot of fabric like this. I haven't been buying much fabric but I do buy 1/4 yrs of this nice stuff and put it in my plastic drawer thingeys. :D

They said ours wasn't closing either and when I went back two weeks later they was gone.

:evil:

Two stores took them out but I hope the third keeps theirs. Funny thing it is the one by the fabric shops.

You never know.

right near me they just opened a brand-new walmart super-duper store.
it' s the size of the entire atlantic ocean. but what they call the sewing section is one spool of thread and a packet of hand-sewing needles. so i would guess that sewing is no longer part of their plans for nj anyway. frankly without a sewing section all they are good for is causing traffic accidents because we have so many better discount stores for clothes and food.

The Walmart I go to has raised the prices on all fabric. They had a large table with all 1.00 fabric, first they raised it to 1.10 now it's 1.50 a yard.

Maybe they're phasing it out too, but I hope not. It's the only place I have to get fabric.
