Hey All!
I was in a Walmart in London, Ontario (Whiteoaks Mall) on Sunday-they still have fabric!!! Not a lot but they do still have it. I am heading back up this week to pick over what they have-not that I need more but you know how it is!

I live in NH and I've been worried about it.  The Walmarts near me haven't gotten rid of the fabric/craft section.  Instead of having the fabric on bolts, they come pre-cut in 2yd strips and are hanging on cardboard.  They have a limited selection, but still have solids/prints in cotton and some fleece.  They have sets together for pillowcases, purses and scrubs.  You can't buy it by the yard anymore, but it's not bad if you need 2 yards.  And it's still inexpensive.  And they do still sell large amounts of muslin.  It's not gone, just minimized.

It IS sad about Wal-Mart, eh?

When I first really learned to cross-stitch, my first few projects came from WM. Same with my crochet and sewing. It was WM's prices and sheer availability to me that caused me to pick up my needle in the first place. How sad now that others will no longer have this sort of inexpensive, walk-off-the-street chance to learn DIY and other crafts.

I am in texas in the dfw area. I only know of one 1 wal-mart in the area that still carries fabric and the selection is limited, though the prices are good.
I was in another store last week and made a strange discovery. Little kits of precut fabric. Anything from fat quarters to 1 and 2 yard "quilters" kits. They also had 1 - 2 tard cuts of broadcloth, fleece, flannel, and a little sherpa.
The price per yard comes out to $3.00 or $4.00 for the quilting stuff, and $10.00 to $12.00 for the fleece, so you are better off using a coupon at Joannes or Hancocks. They did have a kit for a hobo purse that I kind of liked, but not enough to pay $12.00 for.

My Walmart built a new super store across the street & they won't be selling fabric anymore. In fact, my hubby & I were in there last night & the fabrics are already gone & the new store should open in Oct. or Nov. If they had a sale, I missed it - they didn't advertise it. I used to buy my interfacing from them, now I need another source :-( .

I was over at the local walmart this weekend, and they'd recently finished their remodel.  The electronics department was in the exact location that the fabric section used to be.  I looked around the rest of the store, and couldn't find anything remotly craft related.  I guess I'll have to get stretch velvet online now, walmart was the only place I could find any that wasn't crap.
