    Yes use a 50%coupon at joann's it will be like 20 bucks, the best 20 bucks ever spent, very easy to calculate yardage, you will use it a lot and it will earn its keep. I have already used it several times to calculate yardage for quilts. I am always pulling it out and using it unlike some other gadgets

    I ordered this fabric calculator and haven't yet used it...hope to soon. It has a great user's guide, tutorial DVD, pocket reference guide with a convenient storage slot in the back of the calculator. I also like the flip open top that has a quick reference guide on the inside that has user friendly guides on the keystrokes to make for finding out quilt yardage, block yardage and square yardage.

    Yes, this is the same one as Joanns. I love it -both of mine! I called the company one day with a question which they kindly helped me with. Of course the answer was in the manual! Great tool. Like I mentioned before, I have 2 of them. One for my purse and one in my sewing room.

    I've had a fabric calculator for years and used it a lot. Very nice once you get over the learning curve. Lately though I've been using the free app on my Android phone, from Robert Kaufman, which is just as accurate and I think easier to use.

    If you are good at gadgets its okay, otherwise I thought it was a pain to use. I went back to paper and pencil

    Here's a link for the Apple (ipad, iphone) version of the Kaufman calculator
