    If anyone here lives near the new Walmart in Elizabethton, TN, GO THERE!!! They have a long, double sided aisle in the fabric dept with nice fabrics at only $2.00 per yard! I bought some very pretty winter background fabric and it was 100% cotton.

    The fabric dept. is not big, but they did have a nice selection of fabrics at decent prices.

    So jealous. My local WM never even did stock the precuts and I see no movement in getting fabric back. Without Walmart carrying fabric, it's a trip of over half an hour just to get the basics.

    I was in Walmart today too and they were getting it all ready :) I could see it but couldn't get close enough to touch LOL They had it all roped off while setting up. I estimate a week or two at the most and it will be all ready for me.

    Good for you. I just bought some FQ and precut fabric on sale at WM. Maybe they are getting ready to make room for the renovations? We can hope can't we?

    My son's MIL called to tell me that the Wal-Mart near her in Knoxville, TN now has bolt fabric again. I am jealous. Ours doesn't yet. I have infected her with the quilting bug. It is nice to share another interest with her. (More than our children.) She is making baby quilts for people in her church right now.
    I think she is practicing in the hopes that we will share grandchildren in the near future.

    Ours has always had fabric and quilting stuff and today I was there for a new cutting mat and the clerk was putting up boxes of new stuff that didn't even have prices on it yet. They don't have quilting stencils, though. I have to go to Hobby Lobby for those or a specialty quilting shop, and they are usually expensive there, so I order those online.

    Yours looks terrific! I went to ours yesterday. The prices have gone up up up. All the wonderful bargain bolts -$2.50-3.50 a yard - were gone. Someone cut them up into messy remnant lumps and crammed them into drawers. Most didn't even have prices. I did need some fabric, but no one was around. This used to be the case months ago, but it had improved. So ... I did what I did in the past - and what workers I pulled off the floor from other departments also did in the past. I measured my own fabric, took stickers out of the drawer and marked how many yards at the price per yard. I sure hope ours gets its act together.

    I have two WM in my are. The one that is farthest away from me never did get rid of fabric. The one closest to me did and they are putting it back in. Went by there yesterday and they were putting stuff on the shelves. She said to give them a week or so and they would be up and running. The one that did get rid of their fabrics is in the process of remodeling and they have brought in a smaller cutting table. That just saves more room for fabrics since the table they had before, half of it was used for misc stuff.

    I thought I heard walmart was discontinuing fabric at all their stores? I don't shop there now, but I might be tempted if they had fabric . . .
