    go to blackfriday sales?

    I have been to walmart a couple of times but I have never been to a fabric blackfriday sale. Do they ever have anything good? I am close to a Joann's, Hancock's, and Hobby Lobby!

    I know its a little early but I was just talking to my husband about what our daughter wants for christmas and he mentioned maybe we could snag one on blackfriday sales even cheaper!

    JoAnn every year.

    In fact, that's the only place I go on Black Friday.

    They have great sales. They always have flannel on sale at an awesome price, and then fleece is on sale that day and sometimes the next. I don't remember if calico was on sale. I am sure Christmas calico was. I buy a lot of garment fabrics. Their Christmas gift wrap, floral and crafty stuff is on sale. My nieces do scrapbooking, and there are good prices for scrapbook stuff on that day, too. I got a nice OTT light for my mom one year.

    I used to send my kids out on Black Friday to do my shopping for me LMBO as they ENJOYED shopping, even in mass crowds!!! Now they all work and live in different areas :roll: can you tell I am not a shopper :lol: :lol:
    I only go now if it is a really good sale, and resign myself ahead of time for long waits in line outside the store waiting for it to open, crowded stores, long waits to check out...that being said...It has to be a really good sale to drag me out of a nice warm bed and out into our nasty, wet, cold, winter weather :wink:

    I HATE black Friday sales and usually avoid them - I am not a shopper at all... BUT a few years ago I 'discovered' JoAnn's sales - that first year it was WONDERFUL - the second year it was great - but the last couple of years - not so much - they have only a few of the SPECIALS in stock and unless you are the first one in the door and know exactly where to go - forget it - no rainchecks (here anyways!) then so many of the sales are on different days of the weekend - which does not make sense to me - I am less likely to go back to get something else - - -sell it all on one day for heaven's sake!!

    I've been to Black Friday sales but usually I just hide under the bedcovers all day! Those people out there can be vicious!! :D

    I have been to Black Friday sales at my "old" JoAnn Store -- the one they closed in order to open a "super JoAnn's". It was great. However, at the new super store, I don't go there at all unless I really have to -- and never on Black Friday! :evil:

    Tru, she wants a Nintindo DS for Christmas. We do alot of road trips when she is not in school so she is wanting it for when we are on the road!

    I was just looking online at last years Joann's blackfriday sales flyer! I can't wait for this years to get out! I don't mind crowds and my husband will be at home with the kids so that gives me even more of a reason to get out and go!

    have you thought about black friday on line. those usually start at midnight and you can avoid the crazyness of stores.

    Sewjoyce, Why don't you like your new super joann's?

    We just got a new one and besides one cutter that I DESPISE!!!!! I love going there! I really don't like her so much that if I have a number and she is the cutter that will be cutting my fabric I will hand someone else my number and take another one! I don't care if I have to wait for 75 people to get their fabric cut before it is my turn again! maybe by then she will have gone to lunch, break, or home! lol

    At the super JoAnn's -- it's very large, unfriendly, can't find anything, unfriendly, stand in long lines to get anything cut, stand in even longer lines to pay, and oh, did I mention that the people who work there aren't very friendly??? BUT in their defense -- they are so short handed that they might only have one lady cutting during a big sale. Doesn't make me any happier but does explain their lack of friendliness and long lines....so I just stay home and shop online.... (and not at JoAnns.com) :D

    I really don't like shopping either, I will send my husband to the store if at all possible! BUT I hate paying retail price even more than I hate shopping! lol

    The only way I buy groceries is if they are on sale, I have a coupon, or if I just can't live without it! Since the only local place to shop we have is walmart I use cop ads from all the not so local grocery stores and get the name brand cheaper than the walmart brand most of the time!

    I do go all out on meat though. I buy from a local butcher!

    Three years ago my DD bought my Brother sewing machine on line on Black Friday. It was a bottom of the line sewing machine but it still sews like a dream. I will always love that machine because it started my quilting adventure.

    Blackfriday is my favorite shopping day of the year. Not much of a shopper, but my Mom, sister and I used to go every year of as long as I can remember. After I lost my mom I didn't go for a few years. My sister and I went last year and plan on going again this year. I can't wait until my DD's are old enough to go:)

    Joanns usually has good sales in my area as well as AC Moore.

    I know I am revealing my non-shopper-ness, but I have no clue what black Friday is. I'm thinking maybe the Friday after Thanksgiving, but would love to know for sure.

    Yes it is. It is pure craziness and I never miss it. I start at 4:00 in the morning. Stand in line at the first store that is opening. Then I make sure I am at JoAnn's when it opens. Wouldn't miss it. Last year I bought Queen size down comforters for $19.00. They were really nice. My kids loved them. I also bought lots of fabric, Ipods and toys (65% off Fisher price). I was home by noon and started decorating for Christmas. It is my favorite weekend.

    I usually work the day after Thanksgiving. Several years ago my friend and I agreed to meet at the mall after I got off work. Although we "missed out" on the 6 a.m. bargains (I didn't want them anyway, and there are usually only a few in stock), we were very surprised to find the mall nearly empty, as the early shoppers were exhausted and at home. And most of the sales went all day long, so we had a great time and scooped up enough bargains to make us happy. I still don't usually shop that day, but if I do, I don't go until late afternoon.

    I went out shopping on Black Friday once. It was a crazy marathon with a friend of mine. We left home at 5am and didn't get back until 8pm. That was way more shopping than I needed. The crowds were crazy!!!!!

    Now I Black Friday shop online. Many sites have great sales and I don't have to get dressed!!!

    I hear ya about the bottom of the line machine that you just love to pieces! I don't even like the thought of getting a new machine as much as I should simply because I know the machine I have now would get "abandoned"! I have a Brother Xl2600i my dad got it for me for Christmas the year my husband was in bootcamp so I would have something to do. In other words I was living with him and he wanted some stuff made! lol I think he paid about 100 bucks (AT MOST) for it from walmart! It doesn't do much, and it has a SUPER tiny throat space but I love that stupid thing! lol I have been sewing on it for four years and it has never "hiccuped" even once!

    I miss the "Deer Lonely Ladies" day sales they used to have here in Pennasylvania. So many men went out hunting the first day of deer season they had special sales for the ladies. The first day of antlered deer season is always the first Monday after Thanksgiving.

    from what I have found they usually have free shipping on black friday. or just google the store name and coupon code it will pop up with coupon codes for the store you want. I never buy anything on line without a coupon code and I HAVE to buy everything on line including groceries. So just an example would be joanns fabric free shipping code or joanns fabric coupon code or joanns promo code. I do it everyway to see what is the best coupon to use.

    In the defence of the poor clerk that has most likely been standing there without her breaks like she is soposed to get them an started out at 5:00 in the morning that is at thestore.an you know there are some people whole arn't very nice on that day or thanksgiving day sales either.I'm here to let you know think about it before you get all upset with her or him.Because who knows how long they have been standing there.I just happened to be that poor lady that was catching more h--- than she deserved for about 8 yrs straight.I'd be up by about
    4:00an shower an all an at work to fight to get in door so I could do my job.
