    kona sale

    I stumbled across the Colorful World of Sewing site a few weeks ago, looking for a specific shade and found it. They are closing out their fabrics, and many colors of Kona solids are for sale at ridiculous prices. If you have a color card or know what you're looking for, it's worth a look. Very nice owner as well.

    Looks like great prices but they get you with the shipping. My shipping added a full dollar per yard to my order total.

    I filled my cart but can’t find a “place my order” button.

    Click on your cart and a pop up should show up with a checkout option. Be warned, the shipping is high.

    There are a lot of colors to choose from but as has been said, the shipping is way too high. I'll pass on this deal.

    I figured by the time I paid the shipping, I paid 3.30 per yard, still not a deal I could pass up to put some solids in my stash.

    My fabrics averaged $3.82 with shipping, but one of my yards was a print.... Still not a bad deal.

    That's still a great deal, Pamela. I agree!

    Shipping is high but $1.99 per yard overcomes high shipping. My order was under $4 a yard, including shipping, a few yards of $3.99 fabs and a jelly roll, plus a bunch of solids. I can always use more solids. Thanks for the tip.

    Happy to help. I was looking for Hunter and the site appeared in the search. My LQS is Keepsake, and they are selling it for 7.99 in the shop.

    hugs,

    Thank you for letting us know about this. 2 day shipping was the same price as regular so... I ordered 12 yards for $36, high shipping included.

    Well, I truly don't need any fabric (even though I always want it) so I decided not to buy.
    All of you are right. Still a very good price.

    Charlotte, thanks for the I info on the sale, got yardage coming in the mail. The cost of shipping to me was fine, LQS is almost an hour away. Going to start a PP quilt after I finish the binding on my current quilts and needed a solid coordinate, thanks again.

    If you have to drive an hour each way, as I do, it does change your view of shipping somewhat. Delighted that so many of you could benefit.

    Think of what you could have saved next time you see it in the shop for $6.99 a yard. But you refuse to pay $1.99 with added $1 per yard for shipping making it $2.99 a yard. I see substantial savings including shipping.

    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    I ordered but was appalled at the shipping price. I know it is going up but it is making it almost impossible for me to mail order fabrics.

    Charlotte, Great price on this Kona. I hadn't been on QB for a few days and missed your post by two days. I see some took advantage of the pricing. Thanks for posting.

    Those were not legitimate postage prices, even with handling included. When a site doesn't post it's shipping charges, it is usually over charging for postage. I hate wasting time putting together an order only to find out the shipping is way out of line. I did just that on this store, and it came back with crazy shipping rates.
