    I was going to run to Joanns to pick up one little thing.
    Got there and they had boocoo's (sp)of fabric on sale. red tag 3.00, 4.00 and 5.00. all was 50% off the red tag price. Spent 165.00 and may go back tomorrow.
    Really some pretty nice fabric.
    Will try to find camera and take pic. later.

    Typical sales for this time of year in fabric shops, since the new stuff, some shown at Market last month, will start arriving in shops after the first of the year. And they have inventory in late December so are trying to cull older stock.

    I predict stocker shock in 2011, so it's really wise to stock up now at these sales at your lqs, too.

    I just got home from there. I was hoping to pick up some sale notions. I spent some $ but it was PACKED with wall to wall people and stacks of new fabric bolts waiting to be stocked. The place was a zoo at 2:00 PM on a Monday. Go figure..

    Were you going for "beaucoup," meaning "a lot?"

    It seems like lots of places are having sales to lure people in to buy. News claims that stores are starting the Black Friday sales now instead of waiting till the day after Thanksgiving.

    I went this weekend but not the good sales you speak of. I still got some good bargains and had a 40% off and then they were doing a 20% off the whole order so made out pretty well.

    They also had 20% off your total order if you don't get them in the mail, sign up at the register. Its worth it. Sometimes the have several 40% coupons.

    Isn't that always the way it happens? I wish we had a JoAnn's closer to us. The closest one I know of is in Meridian, MS or somewhere in Louisiana. Meridian is a couple of hours away but would be worth the trip! Thanks for sharing. Mary B MS

    the nearest JoAnn's is 90 miles away, but I am going to SC for turkey day and there is a Joann's off I-20 exit 82 in Convery GA and I stop there, on the way back I stop at the one off hwy 59, the one 90 miles away, it's not open when I go up the east coast. I can't wait, there are two in the town where my daughter lives and one just opened 3 miles from her house, lucky me

    cotton went up 54% a friend and i went together to buy bundles on line and split the fabric and cost. we were real happy with the fabric when it arrived. To get the good deal they get to pick the fabric colors. The blenders were beautiful calicos were great abd the plain fabrics of color were varied. Do we hqve a stash. Joann's eat your heart out!!!!!
