    Had to make a run to town today, looking for a specific fabric I need. So I cruised back to my local walmarts fabrics. And WOW...it was like a feast on candy!!!
    Now, I need more money and a afternoon to shop!
    They had some wonderful fabrics in there. Alot that had never been there before!

    Walmart Dubuque Iowa are filling up their shelves with lots of fabric. I bought some fire truck fabric a couple of weeks ago and both those bolts are gone. They had a pile that still had the plastic on. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    one of my local 4 Walmarts never did get rid of fabric, and I agree with others, the selection has been better, and prices a little higher.

    Our walmart has brought it back and so far I'm not impressed with the quality or the price. I used to buy from walmart, but this stuff is very thin. No thanks, and no I'm not a LQS gal, I buy whats good at a reasonable price.

    The WW 10 miles west of me had a cutting table and no one to cut fabric. the WW 10 miles north of me still has pre-cuts.

    I found some very pretty fabric for 1.50 a yard and ended up leaving it on the cutting table. One of these days, I'm going to learn to use that little machine of theirs and cut my own stuff.

    I'm thinking that those letters that some of the ladies from the QB wrote worked! YAAAAAY!!!!!! My store in this area, they just remodeled and put in a lot of new items. I want to believe that writing the corporate offices helped.

    Ours too! They had a big sale of all the fabric and said that they were stopping. The next time I went in I went to see what was in the fabric area. Surprise, they are building up their fabrics again. Yippeeeeeeee!
