    Our local ALCO is discontinuing fabric and everything was 50% off which made it $1.99 yd. I ended up buying 45 yards. I went with a friend and she got 25 yards. We sure made a haul. I made sure I only got the good stuff. You really had to watch.

    What a great buy!!! 45yds!!I have never bought that much at one time, maybe because I never found a bargain like that!! I told my DH today that the price of fabrics is supposed to really go up next year. He said"You'd better stock up before then" Music to my ears. I didn't tell him I had just placed an order with Joanns on line.Not as good as your bargain price though!!

    Our Alco is closing out fabric, too. 50% off fabric 30% off notions, rulers, mats, etc.

    I generally don't buy much fabric there, but it was nice to have a place right in town to pick up a fat quarter or two. Now, the closest place is Wal-mart 12 miles away or 45 miles to Joann's.

    I went to the one in Hartford City, Indiana. I've got to start prewashing and one of the pieces is 10 yards. Not looking forward to that.
    Alco is a little dime store type, bigger than a Dollar General, but not near as big as Walmart.

    I just love a great bargin. Too bad though that your Alco is discontinuing their fabric. Looks like you and your friend made out nicely.
