    hancock fabric sale

    I was in our local Hancock's Sunday and was told that the 70% off Christmas fabric would be 80% off starting the 10th, tomorrow, don't know if it's for every Hancocks but you could call and ask if you're interested in Christmas fabric. I need lots of it for pillow cases for kids in hospitals.

    Sad to say no more Hancock Fabrics in our area, only JoAnn's. Too bad for all of us, JoAnn's just doesn't compare.

    one by me either...closest is over 35 miles away........as far as JoAnn's no-comparison....how true....just yesterday was in a "new" JoAnn in a town about 30 miles west and was greatly disappointed in the layout of the store and also the merchandise offered. A lot of chochkys........fabric dept and quilting stuff in a corner as an afterthought, while other and it seemed, every other hobby was everywhere............also the quilting books are not all in one place, sort of scattered in three different places that I counted anyway...........and the cutting table and checkout cashiers are against the outside walls at the front of the store, and all I could see is what a collision when there is a "sale" on fabric, clash between check out and cutting.....I shall not venture out to that store again........JMHO

    Yes, Yes, I did I did; My DH and I have the same birthday and guess what I got a shopping spree for it and went to Hancocks at 80% off; spend $200.00 on all kinds of fabric incl batik and fleese- planned alot for next Christmas. Christmas fabric was 1.96/yd. It was fun; I think I looked like the lady in the video hiding her fabric and My DH just stood there and laughed at me and he kept making recommendations on more fabric. It was fun. I wish every one of you a day like that.

    I went 2 days after Christmas, it was 70% off and I was happy with that. I doubt if they had any left by now, There was not a lot when I went but I still got some for my stash.

    I wish we had a Hancocks too! Another one of the local quilt shops closed recently. It's getting harder and harder to find fabric other than online. : (

    I went to our local Hancock's today. They still had Christmas fabric on sale. Great prices. I didn't buy any of the Christmas fabric but I did buy some fat quarters with the gift card my husband gave me for Christmas. He asked what I wanted and I said..." a gift card to Hancock's fabric". He likes it when I tell him what I want or just make a list. haha The ladies at the store asked if I needed any help finding anything. I told them "no, I'm just working on my stash". They laughed and said, " just remember to show us what you make". I usually take my stuff in and show them. They are all so nice in our store here.

    I'm with you ... that's exactly how our newer Joann's "Superstore" is here ... we had high hopes when they relocated as a big "Superstore" but they are just JUNK Superstores !!

    Fabrics, books and patterns seem to just be a SIDELINE, they have more FLEECE than decent quilt or sewing fabrics (even here in HOT Texas) Books are all mixed in 3 or 4 places, they get very few new quilting books ... 2/3 of the store is other crafts and just MORE seasonal JUNK !! They've had several Mgrs. and none have stayed, I can see why ...
    Does Joann's REALLY need to sell SOCKS, COFFEE MUGS, FLAGS, GIFT WRAP and MUSIC CDs etc ??? ... and they wonder why we quilters and sewers shop ONLINE !!

    I went to Hancock's today and Christmas fabric was 70% off. They also had quite a bit of baby print fabric for 60-70% off, as well, and it was nice fabric. I walked out $166 poorer, but had a giant bag of fabrics!

    I went to Hancocks two days ago, and their Glacier fleece was on sale 60 percent off. I got some really nice fleece prints for around $4/yard - 60 inches wide. I washed it already and it did not pill at all. Held up very nicely.
