    Kona Cotton questions

    I like Kona Cotton for solids...and have noticed a significant variation in pricing
    between lqshops in the area.
    One i know sells Robert Kauffman Kona Cotton at 4.99 yard.
    One sells the same at 10.99/yard.

    (guess which one i shop at?)

    Anyhow....is the "Kona Cotton" at Joanns the same product? (with coupon - $5yard) I noticed the bolt label says Kona..
    but not the same "Robert Kauffman Kona "Cotton that the LQShops have.

    Your thoughts?

    The bolt of Kona that I saw and bought at JoAnn's does have the Robert Kaufman premium muslin tag on it. It's a separate tag that could have been removed from the bolts you saw. Kaufman is the only person to use that term. It was $6.99/yard and I used a coupon or got it on sale, don't remember which.

    The Jo Ann's where I live also has Robert Kaufman on it.

    Our local JA's bolts do not have the Robert Kaufman name on their ends.

    Oh how I wish I had a JoAnn's near me. I hear about the prices and the coupons and wish I lived close to one.

    Hobby Lobby also carries Kona, if you have one close to you. Can use a 40% off on them. Last time I checked, I believe is was 7.99 a yard. I use theirs all the time and love it. Use lots of black.

    The JoAnn's in my area sell faux Kona solids...in other words, they are NOT Kaufman Kona Cottons and the Kaufman name/logo is NOT on the bolt end. They're using 'Kona' the way many of us use 'Kleenex'...as a product description, not a brand. Be very careful and be sure to read the bolt.

    Fabric Depot also carries the RK Kona and if you subscribe to their free "newsletter" (coupons for all month) you can order it with a 40% coupon any day of the month.
