    I noticed that our local JoAnn Fabric store didn't really have much in the way of Christmas fabrics this year.

    Then, I was at a Christmas dinner party yesterday, and heard that JoAnn Fabrics is being bought out by another company. If that comes to pass, I certainly hope the results will be "bigger 'n better".

    Anyone heard anything about this? And whether you did or didn't hear, did you find many Christmas fabrics at JoAnn's this year?

    I saw another thread on the board that JoAnns is being bought out. As for Christmas fabrics....not so much. What they did have was all on sale and I got a few but there weren't a lot. Was in 2 different ones and the "super" JoAnns had more than the other tiny one did.

    also make sure you're looking in july/aug for probably the largest selection. It's probably something that doesn't get replaced, so as Christmas gets closer, the selection gets smaller.

    I agree. I saw tons during the summer.

    You'll find tons of Christmas fabrics in July and Auguts. They're usually a season ahead. That's when you'll start seeing a lot of Halloween fabric as well. Look for the Easter, St. Patrick's and Valentine's day stuff to come out in the next few weeks.

    The JoAnns by my house had a lot of Christmas fabric and it was all 50% off the last few weeks. I too heard they are being bought out and I've never heard of the company acquiring them. Let's all cross our fingers in hopes they do get bigger and better.

    Fabric is put out months before the holidays... I guess we are supposed to get a jump start on the holidays LOL :D:D:D

    I am keeping a very open mind over the sale of Joanns :wink:

    My JoAnn's had a nice assortment of Christmas fabric, but nothing that called my name. I did get some "snowman" fabric (panel) in Oct which I used for placemats. I don't need anymore Christmas fabric anyway... too much in my stash already.
