    I have a couple of patterns that I am buying the floss to make them. I can't find the dang stuff for less than seventy nine cents a skien! Then Hancock's has only the knock off stuff for something like 49 cents each. Boy! I sure miss having walmart prices on these! I guess I will have to wait for a sale on the dmc at joann's. The other stuff doesn't look as nice to me.

    Just one of them is going to take 58 skiens by itself to make. Sheesh .. Is nothing cheap to make anymore?

    Where else would you look for it?

    Joanns has it for 37 cents a skein. But I would wait until they have it 4/$1.

    AC Moore, Michaels, Ben Franklin carry DMC. Not sure what they have in NV.

    On-line, try 123stitch @ .44 ea., abcstitch @.47 ea. That's the common price around here. While you're at abcstitch take the tour...omg I'm glad I don't live near there! :wink:

    Yikes! I guess I haven't done any counted cross stitch in a while, 12 years to be exact. I used to get it on sale for 10 cents a skein.

    Watch out for it because it is not the same as it used to be. The wrappers have changed. :?

    Do you have a Michael's around you? They frequently have sales on DMC.
