    My quilting buddy/neighbor just called me from our local Walmart and said the fabric is back! I have to get over there in the morning to see what they have. She said there is fabric on the bolt and a cutting table and a lot of fabric! Maybe our emails were read by someone. :-P :-P :thumbup:

    When ours planned to take it out the Mennonite ladies in our community - who all sew their own clothes - petitioned to have it left in. It was - for now. THat was last year and the current plan will have it removed when the store is remodeled in 2012. Lots can happen between now and then.

    I do hope this will be a trend in Wal-Mart, to go back to fabrics. We'll see.

    Our wal-mart has brought it back also. Precuts and jelly rolls. It's cheap paper thin fabric. When they had a real fabric department I bought fabric all the time. I was very disappointed with the quality, and the selection of prints, all of it was kids print. Hopefully over time the selection will get better.

    I called Betonville just two weeks ago and was told there are NO plans to bring fabric back, guess she didn't know what she was talking about......

    Our fabric is still in our store. We will be remodeling the first of the year thereabouts and that is when we are suppose to loose our fabric. I hope they change their mind. I would have to drive at least 1 hour to buy fabric. So far Walmart has covered almost everyone of my needs as far as purchases go. I don't want them to change from who they were! I want it to be like it was when Sam was alive! Just think of all the customers that will not drive in traffic because they can not. Who will be there for them and how will they get their fabric.
