    go to blackfriday sales?

    I have been to walmart a couple of times but I have never been to a fabric blackfriday sale. Do they ever have anything good? I am close to a Joann's, Hancock's, and Hobby Lobby!

    I know its a little early but I was just talking to my husband about what our daughter wants for christmas and he mentioned maybe we could snag one on blackfriday sales even cheaper!

    JoAnn every year.

    In fact, that's the only place I go on Black Friday.

    They have great sales. They always have flannel on sale at an awesome price, and then fleece is on sale that day and sometimes the next. I don't remember if calico was on sale. I am sure Christmas calico was. I buy a lot of garment fabrics. Their Christmas gift wrap, floral and crafty stuff is on sale. My nieces do scrapbooking, and there are good prices for scrapbook stuff on that day, too. I got a nice OTT light for my mom one year.

    I used to send my kids out on Black Friday to do my shopping for me LMBO as they ENJOYED shopping, even in mass crowds!!! Now they all work and live in different areas :roll: can you tell I am not a shopper :lol: :lol:
    I only go now if it is a really good sale, and resign myself ahead of time for long waits in line outside the store waiting for it to open, crowded stores, long waits to check out...that being said...It has to be a really good sale to drag me out of a nice warm bed and out into our nasty, wet, cold, winter weather :wink:

    I HATE black Friday sales and usually avoid them - I am not a shopper at all... BUT a few years ago I 'discovered' JoAnn's sales - that first year it was WONDERFUL - the second year it was great - but the last couple of years - not so much - they have only a few of the SPECIALS in stock and unless you are the first one in the door and know exactly where to go - forget it - no rainchecks (here anyways!) then so many of the sales are on different days of the weekend - which does not make sense to me - I am less likely to go back to get something else - - -sell it all on one day for heaven's sake!!

    I've been to Black Friday sales but usually I just hide under the bedcovers all day! Those people out there can be vicious!! :D

    I have been to Black Friday sales at my "old" JoAnn Store -- the one they closed in order to open a "super JoAnn's". It was great. However, at the new super store, I don't go there at all unless I really have to -- and never on Black Friday! :evil:

    Tru, she wants a Nintindo DS for Christmas. We do alot of road trips when she is not in school so she is wanting it for when we are on the road!

    I was just looking online at last years Joann's blackfriday sales flyer! I can't wait for this years to get out! I don't mind crowds and my husband will be at home with the kids so that gives me even more of a reason to get out and go!

    have you thought about black friday on line. those usually start at midnight and you can avoid the crazyness of stores.

    Sewjoyce, Why don't you like your new super joann's?

    We just got a new one and besides one cutter that I DESPISE!!!!! I love going there! I really don't like her so much that if I have a number and she is the cutter that will be cutting my fabric I will hand someone else my number and take another one! I don't care if I have to wait for 75 people to get their fabric cut before it is my turn again! maybe by then she will have gone to lunch, break, or home! lol
