    If you ever read the book about Sam walton(walmart owner) you will see he made a habit of "borrowing" someone else's things. He was famous for it. It's just not right. It's bad enough when a country like China steals our stuff, but for a company that belongs to the USA to do it to they're own, it's just not right.
    The sad thing is Walmart would even be what it is today had it not been the bully that it is. It kills small bussiness and doesnt even think twice. Let alone steal from others. The only thing for us to do is stop shopping there.

    Ugh blasted Walmart ! I have to be desperate to go in there and it's usually with a lot of kicking and screaming going on. I hope things come out on her side!!!

    Our Walmart discontinued the fabric department, so no fear of me buying this awful copy!! Actually makes me glad that they don't have fabric anymore, if all they have are knockoffs. I'd rather drive the 45 minutes to get to JoAnn's or the quilt shops!! No place to buy fabric in this area anymore!! Grrr!!! lol
