    Ta Dah!!!!!!!!!!!! My friend Yolie and I went to Marshalls Fabric Store yesterday and went NUTS! First, the people there are the nicest group that you would ever meet! They said they treat everyone like family! If you get a chance - GO! When you walk inside you think -"ohhhhhhhhh myyyyyyyyy gosh!! - WHERE do we begin?" These pictures do NOT show it justice.

    No - it is actually located in Batesville Arkansas - 3 hours from Mountain Grove MO. It would have been a PERFECT day IF I wasn't such a block head and LOST my car keys with the opener and spent around 3 HOURS trying to fix the situation! DUHHHHHHH and this was in Hardy Arkansas - another place where people are unbelieving NICE!!!!

    When we went in, I told my friend that I have enough stash at home for a store myself and probably won't be buying anything. Then we walked in and so much for that!

    I spent only $40 which included embroidery stabilizer, about 10 yards of $100 fabric, some lame, and other fabrics of 1.69, 2.99 and up to 3.99 per yard. Don't worry marsye, I was not allowed to go to the wholesale side YET --- key word - YET!

    The online store looks great - but many of the items shown are out of stock when you click "add to cart"- frustrating. Be nicer if they put the out of stock notice under the fabric pic so you knew before adding to cart.

    - because I don't have a license yet - it is strictly for wholesale customers only and need an employee to help out

    who told you that??? Anyone can buy from the wholesale side!! You are appointed a salesman to help you with pricing and whatever you need. It just means you have to buy the bolts or bundles.....not by the yard. Thats the only way I buy from them and I don't have a tax number! Anyone!
