Last month I was in a WM looking for embroidery thread and they had NONE. It had sold out and they hadn't even reordered (the lady behind the counter had no idea when they would be restocking if at all).
At a different WM last week the clerk said she thought that the fabric and crafts area were going to be downsized.
It really shocked me because I live in a very rural and rather economically depressed area where a lot of people do handicrafts to provide for themselves as well as for enjoyment. We also have an awful lot of Amish and Mennonite here too, who do all of their own sewing and crotchet and knitting.
I don't know what they're thinking!
