    Have any of you gone to Hobby Lobby? I had no idea until this week that they had fabric and was shocked to find Moda for $6.99. This is in Cumming, Georgia where we are visiting our daughter. We have one at home about 15 miles away but I've never gone since I didn't know they had fabric but it will now be on my schedule for when I get home. Very good quality fabric too.

    No You Don't.
    The negatives often outweigh the positives.

    I have gotten a lot of nice fabrics in Hobby Lobby. I did not know they had fabric until 2 years ago, and now they are on my regular prowl.

    I found a Wal=Mart in Enfield, Conn. that had tons of fabric and also fat quarters, charm packs and jelly rolls, all at reasonable prices. They even have rotary blades for 3.oo.

    Lets swamp them with thank you notes!
    If it doesn't help our cause at least it will put a smile on their faces.

    Our WalMart still has fabric. Maybe they won't take it out. I hope!

    I also found out, Clinton,NC is keeping their fabric! an 1 1/2 hour drive, but family lives in the area, so no problem there!
    As for Raleigh, some still has fabric, but said they are still going to take it out. yeah maybe it was a man that suggested it.

    We have the already cut fabric, I wish they would go back to the bolts. There is one not to far from me that stills has the bolts. But she said as soon as they change the store they will take it out.

    I wrote to corporate headquarters and got a letter back that said this is a corporate decision and fabric will not come back no matter how many letters they get. It just was not profitable. Heaven knows the rest of the store is so why couldn't they just leave it alone? Oh well, Hobby Lobby is my new best friend!!

    I got similar response from an email I sent when the fabric first disappeared... Shame on them....Let's ask why again.

    Our walmart was remodeled and we still have a fabric dept, and cutting table. The dept is smaller, but, we have bolts and looks like they get some in as they are still in plastic.
    Out in the aisles they have tables with all bolts of fleece. They also have a bin with $5.00 fabric ( I would not use it for quilting)
    it all feels like knits and polyester.
    We also have batting, some sewing machines. A few packaged, but, looks like they are not bringing in any more of those

    I recently asked again at our WM, and was told they do plan to take it out. However, as someone else said...you never know what may happen.

    We had the same thing a couple of weeks ago in Auburn, Maine. There was not one thing on that table worth $5. I'm glad there was something nice in your Walmart.

    I also saw it in a Washington, PA wallmart, but it is not quality material. It looks like it has a rayon in it. Certainly not quilting material. It is almost sheer. Nice patterns but I walked away from it. 5 yard bolts for $5.00. We all know it is not quality for that price. Thanks for nothing Walmart! Junk is no bargain at any price!

    I found that some of the pre-cut is from China.

    Funny you should mention that. My daughter travels to Bentonville a couple times a year, since she is a manager for Hanes Brands. When she questioned (at my urging) what happened to the fabric, she was told that it was INDEED a man that had the final say-so. It figures. Maybe a WOMAN should discontinue the sporting goods or automotive department? Wonder how that would fly?
