    Ok, Joanns online has Quilters Only Solids - Assorted Colors on sale for $1.99/yard. It comes on 8 yard bolts.
    I thought I could buy a few of these bolts to use as backings to quilts. Mainly white, cream or maybe even bolder colors.
    Do you think it's a good buy?
    Would any of you buy it?

    DOH!!!
    I went to register my information to Joanns, and when I am to field in the province required field, my province is not even there!! All the rest of the provinces and territories are there, but they forgot to add Newfoundland!! :( I am not amused!

    I just sent an email to the company to find out if I can even order from them as I cannot give them the information they need cause they are not offering it to me!! sigh...................... :( I saw a few nice things I would have liked to have ordered too :( wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh sniff sniff. :roll: :(

    I'm not amused :( I feel rejected and unloved!!! We have good money here on the rock!!! Just because we are an island shouldn't mean we should be left out!! Prince Edward Island is an island here... THEY are on the list...

    wwwwwwwwwwwwwahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... I'm unloved :( I need to go drown myself in my sorrows... I think I have a chocolate bar here in my desk drawer. crap... no chocolate.. I need to fit into my summer clothes for Cuba next week... sigh................... nothing to drown my sorrows in now. I want to be sewing now.. not working in the office.... I need to drown myself in my stash. The stash from stores they recognize Newfoundland as a place too

    nooonooo nooo I didnt' take you serious!! really I didn't!! I was just playin around thats all feeling sad that Joann's forgot about us Newfoundlanders on their site thats all... I was saying all that as in Joanns losing out on our islanders thats all!!
    I adore where I"m from!!! its beautiful here and its home sweet home!! please please please believe me when I say all that feeling of unloved and rejection was due to not being able to put my information on Joann's site cause they didnt' have our province listed thats all

    thats a problem I find with message boards.. sometimes things get miscommunicated.... no hard feelings really!!!! none at all!!!

    okeee dokey!!!

    thanks Cathy, but I'll be alright.. there are plenty other sites around cyberspace. I'm not looking to start up anything. They do have some good prices there. I already sent a friendly email to their organization this morning stating they missed a province. Just wanted them to know in case there are other Newfoundlanders out there that would like to purchase from them.

    thanks for the help all the same. all is good.

    Maybe we should all send them e-mails about Newfoundland. That way, they MIGHT add it!

    Hi,

    I haven't looked on JoAnn's site for fabrics. If the fabric is 100% cotton go for it. They often have their "symphany" fabric on sale for $1.79 It is defenitely a blend and pills badly. I wouldn't use it in a quilt. I have purchased whole bolts, usally 15 yds. when I have a good coupon in the store it'self.

    Have fun,

    The only online coupon they have right now is for free shipping. Don't mind that, but would LOVE a 50% off online coupon. lol

    I went to that site and at the bottom they have a link for shipping and so I went there. Looks like they only ship to the USA and it's territories at the moment. Too bad for us Canadians, eh.

    I was just into the Joanns site and they say that they don't ship internationally. I could'nt find any Canadian provinces listed .
    The lady and I are practically neighbors ,I live in Nova Scotia
    If anybody knows any difference I would appreciate knowing.
    You ladies in the US sure do get some good prices on fabric I truly envy you. Wilma

    Hi!
    I was at Fabricville in Moncton this week... they had lovely 100% cotton solid colours on sale for 2.99 (Elite card price). They said the sale should be on in St. J's too. Fabricville is getting some great fabrics in for quilting. With Elite card the prices are really reasonable.

    Hi Wilma!!! nice to meet you!! I lived in Halifax and Bridgewater a few years ago... I also used to work at the Atlantic Fabrics in Bridgewater!!!

    I was on the Joanns site earlier and went to register my name and contact info. In that area you have to choose from the drop down list they provide for your state or province. I clicked the drop down menu . saw all the States listed and all but Newfoundland for provinces/territories. Maybe registration is for all, but by what others are stating you can't order anything if outside the US. Lucky for our friends to the south! I remember going to a Joanns when I was driving through Bangor many years ago and just loved what I saw!! I was still fairly new to the quilting world back then, and wanted to buy so much fabric. It was my first time in the US and was afraid I would get stopped at the border for buying too much fabric for the short time I was in Maine before heading back to Canada. I was young and uninformative about the whole border/customs thing. I know more now!! :)
