    I haven't been in Walmart for over a month and had to go buy some fabric for a table cloth for our picnic table. Well when i got there they have all these short bolts with about 2 to 4 yards on them in a big bin. I asked the gals that cut the fabric if they were closing the fabric department. What they are now doing is offering short bolts on cardboard. They are trying something different to see how well it will go. This way you don't have to wait for someone to cut the fabric and the price is right! They still will be caring the regular stock that needs cuting.

    Saw this in our Walmart just this morning. The bin had $5 on it. I didn't get to ask about it because I was short on time and the sales lady was helping 2 customers.

    the fabric is a mix of different fabric with a nice range of colors. I was there early and they were pulling more bins out and I am going back to the store later this evening. My Walmart is only a quarter mile from Walmart.

    I was at mine today, and bought fabric, but I didn't see these. I may have overlooked them, though.

    I will check back since I have to go back there tomorrow. They were in the fabric section, right?

    The bolts were in the fabric area in big square metal bins. I didn't have time to go thru all of them. There were small flower prints, solids, etc etc. This is a really a good deal.

    Too bad! That's a little too far away! :( I'll have to check out the ones closer to me.

    Boo, hoo, we no longer have fabric in our Wal Marts. All we might have is the two yard bolts, nothing more.

    I finely got a chance to go back to Walmart and check out the rest of the fabric this evening. The sale is 5 yards on the bolt and the bolt cost $5.00. There are lots of different colors and prints. My Wallmart has one huge metal bin on the floor and have 3 of the bins in the warehouse. They have lots more on the way. Can't get anyone to say if this is going to be an ungoing thing but was told there is lots of fabric.

    Now all we need is for everyone in the general area to buy these up and hopefully they'll expand this idea and it will come to my local wal-mart! Please, Please, Please call everyone you know! I would love that deal!

    Maybe they are clearing out the last of the fabric warehouse? Or the end of the fabric contract? I'll have to go tomorrow and see if the one here has this sale. It will be great fabric for placemats, tablerunners, potholders, totes and pincushions.
