walmart and fabrics woo hoo!

kathyg_in_miJune 2, 2012

It's amazing! Several years ago, at least 4, Walmart by us got rid of it's fabric department. I was not happy, and my shopping there became once a month,when some prescriptions could be picked up. Well, yesterday I went to pick up a script and wandered to the back of the store. There was 2 aisles of fabric. Bought a little and told the lady who cut my fabric that this would be bringing me back to the store more frequently! We live about 25 miles from the store. So happy to see this.

So those of you who lost their fabrics at your local Walmarts, have hope!

We have 2 Walmarts in the same city about 25 miles SW from us, and one 15 miles North. Two of those never did stop selling their fabric, but one did. I think that one is slowly adding fabric back. You can find some really nice fabric at Walmart, too. I don't sew as much as I used to but I still love to look at their fabric, and buy a piece now and then.

I live in the heart of Wal Mart country and ours did away with the craft dept several years ago, too. We went from having Hobby Lobby, Hancocks and Wal Mart, all within one block of each other, down to just Hobby Lobby and their fabric dept isn't what it used to be, either. And now, Wal Mart has it back. Not quite as big as before, but way better than it was a few months ago with the 3 spools of thread and 2 zippers. I rarely buy the fabric there but sometimes I'll get muslin or interfacing, basics like that.
