Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers

In my rounds of chatting, e-mails, letters and various posts at Cyberstitchers we have discussed the downward spiral of the craft and needlework supplies at Wal-Mart stores as they "upgrade" to Super Wal-Marts. In the past they have been my source as inexpensive, last-minute needs in floss and the ocassional piece of fabric or trim. There is one trim in particular that I have used numerous times because it coordinates so well with Prairie Schooler Christmas designs. So "Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers" out there in cyberland. If you see any of this trim I will gladly pay you for any amount you can get for me. Of course I will pay shipping costs also. It is about 1/4" thick, not the really huge home decorating trim, and is simialr to the DMC colors Ecru, 3053 muted green, and 3777 dark brick red. If anyone finds any of this please let me know. Just thought I would throw that out there and see if I can ever find more of this. By some odd fluke I actually got ahold of some "rare" brown corduroy with pink polkdots that I have been searching for forever. It was on eBay of all places. I paid a bit more then I would have a JoAnn Fabrics, but I had searched all of their local shops within a 50 mile radius of my house and also their website with no luck. The fabric gods are smiling upon me, so maybe the cording trim gods will smile upon me too!
If you noticed, I managed to put a few little links in here. I wonder if they really work?

Quick update/edit. No, the link thing will not work for me yet, so I changed them back.


  1. I'll keep my eye out for you, welcome to the wonderful world of blogging! I love cats so any pictures will be oohhed and ahhed over! Welcome again!

  2. Hi again Jennifer!! Looks like you are off to a great start with blogging - hooray! :D

    Though I don't have access to a Wal-Mart over here, I'll keep my eye out for any similiar style of trim here in Holland. Good luck!!

  3. Ditto what Barbara said.....but substitute Scotland for Holland, lol.

    My tip for the link thingy.....

    type the words that you'd like to be used as your link > highlight those words (as if you were going to copy/paste them somewhere) > while the words are highlighted, click the 'hyper link' button >paste in the web address of where the link will take you > hit 'OK'

    I can't remember the exact wording of the buttons but that's sort of close to how I do my links.
    HOpe they're semi-understandable. (Is that even a word? lol)
