1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is Walmart getting rid of fabric?? on: August 21, 2008 09:22:39 PM
I heard they are ALL phasing out the fabrics within 3 years.  I'm assuming the $ determines who goes first, but the olan is for all WalMart stores to phase it out.

15yrs ago, we had a local fabric store, in fact there were two.  They closed down when WalMart arrived.

Aww, we only have one more in town that has fabric.  That's sad.  Oh well, I have JoAnn's, Hancock, and Hobby Lobby still.  And sometimes at Hobby Lobby you can get lucky and get 2 dollar fabric.  *Sniffle* But I will miss the dollar and cheaper buys you could get from Walmart.  Must stop by there soon to get my fix before its gone forever.   Cry

2. Use a bobbin that is almost empty and check it every time you are about to start a new seam.  This will ensure that it never ever runs out.  (It is also laughing at you.)

3. If you don't bother to check your bobbin, it will run out midway through a seam regardless of how full it was when you started.  (It is laughing at you too.)

Tip:  Use a Sharpie marker to mark the beginning of the thread as you wind your bobbin.  As you start to wind, hold the marker next to the thread and mark a several inches.  Finish winding your bobbin.  When you are sewing, you will know you are near the end of the bobbin thread when it changes color. 


I LOVE this idea.  I hate sewing and then realize my bobbin has run out...after I got to the end of a very long seam.   Cry  I'll have to try this one.

I'm so sorry about your mom.  Hugs to you.  I think the box is just lovely and she would be so proud of you.

My first "This Rocks" went to you.  Very talented.  I knew it was Ross when I saw the thumbnail.  You have got some serious talent there.  Keep letting it grow.  I remember Ross from my childhood.  My mom would watch his shows and would get his books and try to paint like him.  She did very good.  I wish she painted more.  She really likes doing it.  So I encourage you to stay at it and not let it become something you do every blue moon.   Wink

I love this skirt.  You did a wonderful job on it.  I love the colors.  If I thought I had the patience I would want to try it myself.  You should be very proud of yourself.  And I don't think its to kiddish at all.  Its very nice, and perfect for Spring and Summer.

Thought I would take a second and chime in.  I am new to Craftster and signed up because there was a lack of craft people in Fayetteville.  At least that I knew of.  But I am over near 71st High School and I am excited to see all the people from Fayetteville on here.  Maybe one day we can form a meet-up or something.
