    I co-chair my kids' Scholastic Book Fair and this year the theme Safari - so quite by accident, I find out today that my Walmart is closing the fabric department (like so many others) so I went to take a peak...immediately saw these fabrics and grabbed about 16 yds total for 75% off! The room at school will look so great with these draped everywhere!!

    I love book fair!! I always helped when my kids were in school. Now, I just order books for my granddaughters when they bring their book order forms home.

    Your fabrics are great and the room will be adorable with it everywhere. What a wonderful idea-will really set the tone.

    I think you should make a 'flintstone' dress out of these fabrics :) :) and you could wear it at the book fair.

    Love the fabric. I miss those book sales, the schools here in VA don't do them anymore.

    Hey I do the Scholastic book fair too, at my son's school.....lol I wasn't that imaginative though. Just used the plain yellow and brown they sent.

    I think I need to take pointers from you :mrgreen:

    We will definitely use the stuff they send up too, but we don't do our fair until the end of January so we have plenty of time to come up with ideas! Thanks for doing your Fair - I know the kids love it and the schools greatly appreciate it, and love it too! :D

    that's such a shame :cry: ...it is such a great way to get the kids excited about books and reading! We have a program where we offer vouchers to teachers to hand out to kids who won't get any books (for whatever reason) - the teachers give them out as prizes for various reasons and the smile on those kids faces is so touching - you know that THEY know these vouchers are the only way they would have received a book this year...they hold them with such love :D !
