    I was looking for a fabric that was carried at WalMart and ran into this petition. For those of us mad that WalMart is closing their fabric departments, you might want to sign this petition. It only asks for your name and e-mail address and assigns you a number.

    I think Walmart is making a huge mistake. I used to buy all of my batting there as it was so much cheaper than at the local fabric store and I could not afford to buy it at the local quilt shops. I saved over half by buying it at Walmart and as a result, I don't finish as many quilts as I used to because the cost is just too high.

    Let put the hurt on Wal-mart and not shop for other things if they remove fabric.

    Everyone - I believe this is an old petition. If you look at the date at the bottom of the petition page, it's dated 2007.

    Maybe they still need it and theymay listen. All they can read are the $ signs, so this will probably just go unheeded. Well worth the try tho'.

    I'm pretty sure it's too late. They have made the decision. I can't help it if they are wrong. Sigh.

    Sorry to bust your bubbles folks, but this petition and many others have been around on the net and in the stores for at least 3 years! Yes, we started here that long ago and it has not helped one bit!

    What I was told--CEO of Target went to Wal-Mart and wants Wal-mart to be as 'nice' as Target and compete with them. What the idiot doesn't realize is that Wal-Mart was targeting a different clientčle. I live in metro Phoenix, AZ and there wasn't a WM that wasn't packed at any given time. Now you have to understand I could drive to 4 or 5 stores within a 20 mile trip. Look around the rest of the store and if you have a Target go there and look around and compare the products. They are looking an awful lot alike.

    There are other little things that I could only find at WM and they have discontinued those too because of this new an improved store. The only reason some have fabric anymore is because of the volume that they bought over the years.

    I was going to say I think this is to late. I signed a pettion about 3 yrs. and our Walmart just closed the fabric dept. within the last couple of months. You know what, we don't go there very often now.

    Hi everyone I live in NY and our WM still has tons of fabric still coming in--I was there last week & passed that dept. 2 people waiting for someone to show up to cut some fabric. I joined in & now 3 of us were hollering for help.There were 2 big shopping carts filled with bolts to be put away--Finally lady showed up & said WM not hiring & if anyone goes no replacement. Many of the can shelves are also empty--same thing no help--Freeze on hiring--

    Personally, I would never shop at Wallmart. I would find fabric any way I could rather than take business away from independant shops. Beg for scraps if I had to.
