Having driven many miles, it was late and we were pretty tired with we arrived. I was washed with anticipation about what was behind those doors.
Okay, to say I was disappointed would be an understatement. Yes, there was plenty of fabric, but not what I remembered. Very little name brand lines. A lot of fleece and half of the store was filled with decorator fabrics. I so clearly remember purchasing civil war fabric years ago, but this time most of the fabric appeared to be theme related. The only name brand lines I saw was Downton Abbey.
Now don't get me wrong, I am not a fabric snob, as I do purchase fabric from JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby. But at least at JoAnn's the fabric is put on sale occasionally or you can use a coupon.
There were only a few customers in the store, whereas I remember the store buzzing the last time I was there. So what has happened?
Here's a couple of samples on display.
Nothing like Hancocks of Paducah where they have dozens of samples for inspiration.
Would I go back? No. Even if we were in the same town, it would hardly be worth my time to walk the aisles.
Have you ever experienced such a change when you returned to a well known store?
Anyway, enjoy your weekend. And Happy Quilting.
