    Anyone else notice?

    I went to Joann fabrics for some fusibles and they no long carry Wonder Under or HeatNBond lite or similar products on the bolt. I didn't go look in notions to see if they had them packaged.

    And their prices are really going UP. I was there Saturday to see a free mug rug demo using a Pellon fusible (Pellon has so many, the gal giving the demonstration didn't even know which one she was using so she gave me a 2 inch piece to compare with all the rest). That particular fusible was $6.99yd .. I thought that was insane even with 50% off. Guess I'm getting to be an old penny pincher!

    Back to the HeatNBond lite, I use alot of it for my fabric postcards and was so disappointed that Joanns no longer had it by the bolt where I could get it 50% off. So I ended up buying it at Joanns online (I think it was a 5yd+ pkg and I got 2) but they didn't accept the 50%off coupon. Don't know why, but was happy to get my fusible.

    Where do you buy Wonder Under and or HeatNBond lite?

    I buy it from Walmart. The Heat and Bond lite is usually in a package. The Pellon is on the bolt. The Walmart here has the fusible fleece, Insulbrite, and Warm and Natural on the bolt and just about all the Pellon products. I keep a big stash of each. It's cheap there.
    Got fabric?

    I just bought Heat n Bond lite on line at Joanns 35 yds at half price. Got it about a week ago. Not really what I wanted (too stiff) ended up giving it away to a quilter that quilts for school. Found my Pellon light wt. and bought 18 yards of it. I'm hoping I have enough. I am doing three quilts (next Christmas) that take at least 5 yds each of the fusible. I hope my mind is still there when I finish. Piecing does not look bad but the quilting may do me in. Check again on line at Joanns and good luck.

    I too share your frustration at not being able to buy Heat and Bond from a bolt at JoAnns. I typically buy a bolt of it every 15 months. Buying it by the package is way too inefficent. I also noticed the pricing of all the bolt interfacings... One type I also purchase by the bolt has more than doubled in price in the last year. It went from $1.99 per yard to $5.99 per yard. I think it all relates back to their coupon gimmicks. I beleive they assume you will be using a coupon.

    I don't use those products. I notice Joanns has increased some prices and have lesser fabrics also. The coupon gimmicks are just that, raise the prices and give 20 - 50% off with coupons. Probably paying more than without the raises and using coupons. I buy from Walmart as much as possible, I like their quilting cottons and their prices.

    I JUST found that out the other day when I went there and they didn't have it. I ended up getting packaged sheets of Steam-a-seam but for some reason the gummy glue gets all over the release paper and it messed up my iron. grrr.

    I use steam a seam, also. I never buy the pre-packaged, it needs to be loosely rolled or the sticky side seperates. My LQS ordered me a boxed roll of it and gave me a good discount.

    I just bought it from a bolt at Joann's on Saturday. They had a good supply. Strange.
    Happy Quilting.

    i think that may be a (local store) decision---my joannes still carry all of those products- on the bolt- i just bought 6 yds of heat n bond lite a few days ago.
    check joanne's on line if your local store doesn't have what you need.
    my lqs also carries heat N bond lite, steam a seam lite and a few others....they may have (discontinued) wonder-under---i bought a whole bolt of it from joannes a couple years ago and had to return it---it did not (work) it was impossible to remove the paper & when i called customer service they told me to just return it- that they thought they had a 'bad-batch'...it may be that it is no longer available---i haven't tried finding it since then= i stick with the heat & bond or steam a seam or pellon products.

    I buy it at Hancocks...so I can use a coupon which makes it ALOT less than Walmart(who will not use coupons)
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    I got my bolt from amazon. Joanns had some clear pellon bond that I tried @ 50% off, but it was really hard to peel away. I'm sticking with heat and bond.

    Those wonderful coupons have price consequences IMHO.

    My local quilt shop carries heat n bond lite and a new brand that is out. Not sure how it compares in price. Shame on Joann's. Wonder Under was my favorite.

    I usually get my Heat n Bond at a local Ben Franklin's and a Fabric Warehouse. They will still sell it by the bolt or by the yard.

    I went to Joanns in seach of Heat n Bond lite and was sorely disappointed, the pellon that replaces it has a clear plastic backing. I had some of that in my stash that I bought just to try some time ago and hated it.
    I did find Heat n Bond lite on the bolt at Walmart and bought yards and yards. Happy Camper! Yet one more reason not to go to Joanns. They are inching and pinching me right out of their store at every turn.

    Coupons not accepted on sale items but if it wasn't on sale and the coupon said in store and on line it should have worked. If all else fails call their number for on line orders. I have bought bfusible at wal-mart but don't know the brand name off hand.

    If you can find "Steam a Seam" , I like that product better than the ones at Joann. Sometimes you can find a deal online .

    I buy by the bolt at Hancock's when they have it on sale for 40% off.
