    I went yesterday. Didn't see much and the store wasn't busy.
    But I got a new mat to replace the one I warped- it was the last one. Also got Eleanor Burns flying geese ruler. MSQC just did a new tutorial using them.

    I was surprised that I didn't see much else but that's okay. Just wondering what the rest of you thought of the sale.

    Have a great day, friends :D

    I don't think I will be going this weekend, but you never can tell where I will end up. I don't need anything really.

    I went yesterday, got 'coffee bean' fabric on Red Tag sale at $2. per yard. They were VERY busy at the cutting counter and it was running smoothly. The FQ's and bundles are 50% off and notions wall is too so got a few pencils and a set of beading needles. I made myself not buy more FQ's.

    i did! i got red tag p-leather, almost 12 yards for less than $3 a yard! My daughter who is a third grade teacher, has made up a reading area on the floor. she got 32" pillow forms at IKEA last year..6 of them, really cheap. wanted me to cover them in something that could be wiped clean..

    i got the 50% off the red tag and another 20% off total order..we are both well pleased!
    looks like i will be sewing them up today!

    i didn't buy anything for me..so proud of myself!

    No, I replaced my Olfa- the green one. Love that mat and had it for years. My fault that I ruined it :XD:

    Charleen, I was so surprised the cutting table didn't have lines a mile long. Not sure why??

    Hi,

    I'm not sure if I will be going to Joann's this weekend, only 9 miles away but you never know.

    Me too, about needing anything or planning on going there but life is sometimes unpredictable and that's why I keep my coupons in my purse at all times.

    Love Debbie Mumm & Susan Winget especially when it's on sale for $2.00 a yard!!

    Here's a tip for the Red Tag/clearance shoppers...if you go late in the day, check the restock bins at the cutting counter. That's where all the good stuff can be found. It appears that the ladies are so busy, they don't have time to put it back on the clearance racks. :thumbup:

    I bought a few red tag clearance w/ the extra 50% off, but didn't like most of the patterns they had out.

    I went and picked up some fabric I needed for my next quilt, a fat quarter for the weight loss challenge, and oogled all the pretties. LOL Oh, I also picked up metallic thread, which I'm really excited to use. The cutting area was crazy busy at ours too, but it just gave me more time to look at the fabric.

    I found just over forty yards for about $2.00 per yard on the clearance table. Great for backs! It was really funny the quilters were out in force, we all were there when the store opened and were all in one aisle at the clearance section. Quilters know how to shop even when the price is going up. I am really pleased with my finds!

    I got a big roll of fusible Pellon and some sew-in for purses I plan to make-used my 40% coupon on the pellon-bought WAY too many FQ"S at $.99 each, and some bits and pieces off the notions wall-oh, and another purse pattern (I have several now, and have never made one - yet) and found some stunning teal for backing on my whitework sampler quilt-unfortunately, it wasn't on the clearance table! Not much there and it was really messy-I have a bad arm/shoulder and couldn't manage lifting heavy bolts/rolls of fabrics. I bet all the good stuff was either under them, or in other shopper's baskets!! All in all, it was a fun day-and I was really surprised how fast the cutting table went!! Saw a few ladies with their baskets LOADED - and one had her DH pushing a SECOND cart!! Glad I wasn't behind her at the cutting table!! I also used the 20% off everything coupon so I saved a bundle!

    I went shopping there last night! Bought a new package of rotary blades. Some fabric I needed for the quilt top I'm working on. And some Christmas fabric so I can make table runners for Christmas presents this year. Spent $75 and saved over $40! I was happy.
