    Just happened to go to WM on my lunch hour today to pick up little more of the jewel color fabrics that my DH so sweetly got me last week...the pattern he chose needs a little more than he got.
    Anyway, was getting the fab cut and the lady cutting asked if I had seen the bolts of fabric up front for $5 a bolt. I said really? She said yep! Well I went to look and although they were partial bolts with about four yards each, I found 3 bolts of decent weight fabric, one a baby panel print each bolt 44" and one of nice wgt green 60+ " wide. I was almost dancing to the check out.
    Well back to work, pics when I get home.

    I saw them at our walmart. It doesn't say what is in the fabric content. But, some of it feels pretty nice. There is supposed to be 5 yards on each bolt. $5.00 for 5 yards....not bad.

    The ones I got say 100% cotton. If yours had it too, I should check out the other one on my way home. 5 yards! Ooooo, it is even better than I thought! Thanks!

    Hmmm...I just went to Walmart and got fabric today and I didn't see these.

    Maybe they had them and I just overlooked them? I have to go there tomorrow, and I'll ask someone, just in case.

    I went to my WM and there wasn't any good deals in fabric's. It is not like I need to buy anymore but I am like everyone else I like a good deal.

    They had three different displays of this fabric. I sure looked like something new they were trying. They didn't have them Sunday when I was there. There were several that looked like reproduction fabrics. I just looked because I promised I would not buy any fabric for awhile and I just went to Michaels and bought all of their clearence fat quarters (5 for $1.49). So how long is awhile...a couple of days???

    At that price, I would have found plenty of uses for that material! When another wal-mart near me got rid of their fabric department, I had all of these ideas of things to make with what was on sale for 50% off. I did grocery bags, kitchen accessories, I have a quilt planned for hubby, and pillow cases for the kids!

    Man, I keep hearing about these bolts and the baskets that are 50% off at Walmart and I think I'm getting a little envious. I am very happy that atleast my Walmart has fabric, but sure wish they did this stuff. I'm lucky if I find anyfabric on sale there at all anymore and their remnants is only 20% off plus a total tied up mess so hard to even see what it is. Good luck to anyone else who looks at their Walmart for these deals...hope you guys get good ones!

    I heard all of the wal-marts are doing away with fabric. It really is kind of ironic how the wally worlds without fabric are still selling sewing machines. :roll:

    My guess would be money. It might seem busy, but WM only does things from a business stand point. Can they make more money selling big screen TV's or yards of fabric?

    That's my guess, too! They get a bigger profit per square foot of floor space from more expensive items than they do from "lowly fabric." You gotta satisfy the masses I guess. :roll:

    I think I'm going to run out to my Walmart to see if they have any deals going on in the fabric department! 8-)

    Went to another WM on my way home. Had more bolts of pretty much the same material, but did find a bolt of the wider material in purple, and a second bolt of the jungle print. Now I can use that print for kalidoscope quilt and regular too. Also found a great patriotic print, nice quality, for $1 a yard (got 4). DH found some FQ's of decent quality that appealed to him for $1 each. All100% cotton. So I am a happy camper...ahhh, quiter. ;-)

    My Walmart HAS closed out their fabric just recently! The gals in the fab dept was really upset & disappointed about losing their jobs & not being able to be seeing their repeat customers that they made Friends with! I will definitely MISS them! They were always so helpful!

    I think this Quilting Board SITE is just WONDERFUL!!! Thanks, for being here you all...

    If I didn't have to drive over a 100 miles to get to a Wal-Mart, I'd be on my way now! Sounds like a real good idea.

    You're lucky. I just got back from our WM and saw the $5 bolts and there wasn't anything I could use. In fact it was some really weird knits and things. Maybe somebody beat me to it and got all the good stuff!
