I have been noticing that Joann's fabrics are higher quality than they were a year ago and the brand names are going downhill.
Recently I was shopping at a LQS and some of the 12.50 per yard fabric was pretty think.
I went to Joann's and found better quality for about 7.99 a yarn and used by 50% off coupons.
There were, however, fabrics at Joann's now that are $12.99 per yard. I could not believe my eyes. The clerk said that they are really stuggling as they mark prices up.
I've also seen some cottons at LQS for $16.50 but it is imported.
I was very pleasantly surprised at Joann's quality. Never thought I would say that. They still have the really cheap stuff - but there is great quality now too.
Am I crazy or has anyone else noticed this???
