 Angry
THE only reason I go to Walmart and they changed it?!?!?
I only go once a month because of gas money and I have to wake up early.
What a waste.  Cry
But anyway, back to the point.
I believe it is the Harahan Walmart that has just redone their store and basically obliterated their craft section.
So don't waste your time going.
*sigh*
No where am I gonna get fabric?

Oh and here's a form where you can complain  Cheesy

I have heard that all of the Wal-marts are doing away with their fabric departments. I am so bummed because I also have to drive really far to go to any "real" fabric stores.

Yeah.
It fails!
So now I'm stuck using cheap overlarge shirts to make stuff.
Joy.

If you are near Lafayette,LA the Wal-Mart on Pinhook still has fabric ect.I know I hate it.As you well know if you don't live in a large city in Louisiana you have to drive about 30 min to a hobby store to get things like fabric because damn walmart doesn't carry hardly anything now.

i second what shyla said, and i would like to add that the Abbeville walmart has not reduced any of their craft/fabric selection. (its not a horrible trip from lafayette. i do not live there, but word of mouth around the area is great)

The Wal-Mart in Slidell, LA (the one that's next to Sam's Club; I don't know about the other one) lost its fabric and crafts department when they remodelled the store. There's now one aisle of craft stuff, which includes some yarn.

I have no idea what area you are in but I can tell you where I go. I'm on the Northshore in Mandeville.

There are two Jo-Ann Fabrics  (both on Veterans I think, they are right down the road from each other) and a Hancock Fabric (near Clearview Mall on Waverly) in Meterie.

If you use a coupon and shop sales at Jo-Anns you can get some great deals.

There is a Fabrixx (can be $$) in Covington. In Slidell there is a Hancock Fabrics and a Hobby Lobby.

I also know of some co-ops online where you can get some wonderful fabrics for amazing prices, some of it the higher end quilting and designer woven cottons and a lot of knits. PM me and I can send ya the links.
