Yeah, the WalMart nearest my house has fabric and gets new stuff too. I think I heard that the decision was made for each WalMart if they were going to keep their department or not. Mine doesn't have a huge selection, but it'll do in a pinch Smiley

Most of the ones where I live still carry it too, but some have stopped. I believe that there was a big hullabaloo by us crafty people and WalMart decided to evaluate each stores fabric dept. and decided based on the numbers whether to keep it or not. I love Joann's for the coupons!!!

I think walmart is gonna loose alot of business if they get rid of their craft section.  I heard that they was going to take out all crafts and not just fabric.

I am taking a break from swaps for a while.  I am not accepting any personal swaps at this time until around Christmas time.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

The super Walmarts around here don't have fabric, but I have a plain old walmart near me that carries fabric and a few craft supplies.  I prefer to go to Hancock or Hobby Lobby for my fabric, and I work at Michael's so I get my crafty stuff there.

I finally finished the poppet I was working on.  Her second head turned out much better.

Oh, and reprodepot.com has a scrap bag offering that is cool if you're doing clothes (or anything else that takes less than 1/2 of a yard) that's sold by weight. I like interesting fabric for most everything I do, and that's what they carry, vintage, imports and the like.

Our walmart stopped carrying fabirc this winter. They still have some notions, scrapbooking stuff, a bit of yarn, and a few beads, but it isn't enough! We only have 1 other locally owned fabric store in town and NO craft stores! I have to drive 2 hours to get to the nearest Hobby Lobby! I catch other people going out of town to get me stuff.  Cheesy

I wish we had a Jo-anns in Canada (just for the alova suede)... One of my local Wal-Marts does carry fabric, but not much and not very good quality, the other Wal-Mart doesn't. I hit up Fabricland everytime I go and they are always having major, major sales... So I always feel justified to spend more money because of the money that I am saving going there  Wink I go to Hobby Lobby everytime I go to the States, which is like once a week, but I never seem to have any luck with their fabric department... Though I pretty much lovev everything else about Hobby Lobby.

aquasnow, that fabric looks like a terrible pain!  I would probably throw it out the window.  Kudos to you for trying it.  I did notice, though, that the toes on your legs are still open.  You are actually supposed to sew those up before you turn the the legs so the toes have a nice, clean line on them.

lol beth, i don't keep up with this thread much since if i did i'd never sleep lol i was just floored someone even saw it, no one ever mentioned it when i posted lol... thanks for remembering to suggest it!

eliea... walmart doesn't sell fabric anymore, according to their 800 number all fabric departments were phased out last year, which sucks because i had never even bothered to buy fabric anywhere else... now i'm spending twice as much on fabric that's less convenient Sad

Every wal*mart in my area still has it. I can travel between 5-45 minutes depending on which one I go to. There are about 4 different ones in that range and they all still have it though some have gotten smaller. My wal*mart keeps saying it's going to go away but they keep ordering fabric!  There are also still several stores around the country with them they just like to pretend there's not.  Most of them petitioned to keep the fabric departments as wal*mart ran out a lot of the local fabric places and it worked. So perhaps it's just one here and there near you too?

aquasnow you are super brave for working with that fabric. I think I'd have given up by now! it looks frustrating!
