Jeff, I live 30 minutes from Wal-Mart's corporate offices, and there are a lot of stores that are closing their fabric departments. Some stores have been told that they were going to close down but haven't yet. My store closed theirs, but there are still a few stores where I can get 1.1 oz sil, and 1.9. You are right about stocking up, my wife thanks that I am crazy for buying it all up, but she still sews it all for me
