    60% off coupon at Joann's

    In the mail yesterday, I received a loyal customer coupon card with a scratch off area. It's a 60% off regular price coupon. Now if I could just decide what I want for 60% off.

    Thinking about a new pair of Gingher dressmakers. Or a big cut of W&N batting. hummmmmm.....

    Got any suggestions?

    I got one too and am having the same sort of conundrum. I was thinking a new cutting mat, but then I saw that mats are 50% off, so I may get one anyway, but that doesn't help me find something for 60% off. I like your scissors and batting ideas though.

    a bolt of fabric would be nice too. I like to buy background fabric that way.

    I have all the cutting mats i could ever want! Found a lady on Craigslist selling her entire sewing room and sold me 2 huge mats, books, fabric, rotary cutter, rulers for $30!!!! Biggest cutting mat Olfa makes I think...have two rulers of 12x12 and 9"x24"(?). Anyway, last time I visited the Quilt and Sewing Expo in Atlanta last October I took my Gingher 8" dressmakers to be sharpened. They really did a terrible job and now the scissor points do not meet at a point. And they aren't really sharp anymore either. My advise....don't go to the booth that sharpens scissors at those events....they don't do a good job and charge too much!

    When I have a coupon from Joann's that won't work for anything else I'm purchasing I usually buy the Titanium rotary cutting blades. Also have used them for scissors--finally got a second pair of gingher duck bill scissors so my daughter has a pair to keep with her stuff.

    Lucky you!!! Mine was only 40% If I had gotten a 60% I would have purchased batting.

    Wow that is a good discount. My scratch offs were for 40 and 50percent. We just have to hope they do not have things on sale so we can't use the coupons!

    Wow! I got the 60% off, too! I've never had one of those! Haven't been shopping there for awhile---guess they missed me! And nygal, they always have lots of sales on when they give out coupons.

    I have found I really like their premium wide ( 110 in) muslin , for backings. There are several wide muslins they carry but the "premium" or the Kona 110 is very nice and rarely goes on sale. So that my suggestion.

    Send your Ginghers to the factory in Greensboro, NC...you'll need to Google for the address unless you kept the box they came in. Gingher will sharpen them for very little (or it may be free, IDK) and they are like new!

    When I have a good coupon I buy batting on the roll! Good luck with your decision

    if not excluded...one of my favorite things is the Rowenta travel size iron. It has great steam and very light weight.
    Have a blessed day everyday!

    We don't have a JoAnns but I have ordered a bit online - I would probably buy a roll of batting!

    My Rowenta travel iron literally blew up. Another person on this board had one actually catch fire and she was burned. I had one earlier stop working, then the replacement blew up! Pretty scary. The sales lady at Joanns told me that was the 2nd one returned in 2 days. Wouldnt get one again. I love the design and feel, but...

    Irons are almost always excluded from their coupons

    I never get the 60% off coupon..........

    But 40% is better than nothing I guess.

    Irons are on sale at JoAnns now.... We only got a 50% off but thinking about a bolt of good quality muslin for a cathedral window quilt on my "to do" list
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    I have found that the coupons are just a waste of my time. Everything I want is already on sale and can't use the coupons. My LQS has fabrics cheaper than Joann's and don't need coupons.

    My Joann's is moving to the other side of the expressway on May 17. Everything at the old store is 75% off so I've been buying bolts of fabric and last night scored a huge wide roll - 16 yrds of Mountain Mist - for 75% off. Normally 83.17 paid $20. Now I'll just wait until the new store opens and take my coupon there. Hopefully the Gingher's aren't on sale then I'll get another pair and send my current one's off for resharpening to the factory. Love the idea of the Kona muslin for backing too. Decisions, Decisions....

    I got a 60% coupon a while back......decided what I was going to get and when I got to the store that was on sale, so I thought of something else...........it was on sale. Hope you find something you really want that isn't on sale so you can enjoy your coupon!
