Laura Richardson, a crafts, home decor and leisure analyst with BB&T Capital Markets, was reportedly told that the retailer would no longer carry cut fabric. A representative from Wal-Mart, Linda Blakely, said, "We will continue to have cut fabrics in our stores, moving forward. I don't know who (Richardson) is talking to. We are piloting a new assortment at stores, but that doesn't mean we're moving away from fabrics."
