    Oh, so sorry for you. Batting is a coupon fabric, too.

    We may think of interfacing and batting as types of fabric, but my local JoAnn's has signs up that say batting is NOT a fabric for the purpose of coupons. I don't know how they define interfacing.

    At my Joann's batting is not considered fabric when it comes to using a coupon.

    It must be up to the individual JoAnn's stores. That's how I always buy my Warm & Natural off the roll with the fabric coupon.

    I'm not talking about batting in the bags.

    I agree, it must be individual stores, also for the 60% coupon they are very picky

    I can save $100-$200 by using coupons and buying the large rolls. have even arrived after all was sold and they let me order it using coupon. I buy full rolls only, does that make a diffrence? Thankfully I have room to store it.

    I buy both the batting in the bag and on the roll in all of the Jo-anns with the % off coupons. I will not be going to buy anything at Jo-Anns if they stop letting me use the coupons for this and interfacing ....

    When I worked at JoAnn's, interfacing was a notion. I think batting has its own listing. I wish they hadn't closed our JoAnn's now it 50 miles one way.

    hmm interesting-when I worked at JoAnn's interfacing wasn't considered a notion, must have been an individual store thing.
    I used my 60% on interfacing and another for 45"home dec fabric.

    I got in on that Thurs. also. I asked at the cutting counter and couldn't believe when, I think she is the store manager, scanned the interfacing and went to the cash register and rang it up to see what happened. She came back and said yes it works with the coupon. I wasn't planning on that purchase that day, but couldn't let the coupon go to waste.

    I get confused as to when "quilting notions are not "notions" although some of the same items are displayed in both Notions and Quilting at Hancocks. Makes no sense! I tell the clerk it makes no sense and they usually accept the coupon. It sure makes shopping harder when you don't know what is coupon related and what is not until you get to checkout.

    I plan to go to Hancocks for their Labor Day Sale as Joanns is 35 minutes away! Hmmm, wonder if Hancocks will honor Joanne's coupons??????

    Some of the coupons say that they are for fabric only, while others say that they can be used for any item.

    Batting is not a fabric at the JoAnns in Daytona Beach, at least not the batting in a bag. But the 40% off works.

    When I worked at a JoAnn's, batting was considered with foam and fiber, and interfacing was its own catagory and on sale separately. A fabric coupon could be used on the by the yard interfacing, but not b. t. y. batting. It is supposed to be nationwide standards, but the company changes its guidelines and specifics all the time, and sometimes the part time employees don't keep up on all the changes.

    OUR Joans won't use coupons for batting...or interfacing...and if you buy a whole bolt of cloth they even trim off the end that was on the bolt to make sure you don't get that extra half inch on one side that makes the end a bit crooked! Talk about customer courtesy! I'm sure glad we have a well stocked Hancocks nearby!

    Didn't know batting was a coupon fabric either! That stinks because i did say to my husband I'd love to be able to use it for batting if i could.

    When I was there the interfacing was on sale for 50 percent off so no coupon was good for it but hey, 50 percent off was great! But I also used my 60 percent off on the dragon fabric.

    I also had 60% off batting dreams when I went to Joann's last week. However batting had conveniently gone on sale for 40% off that very morning.
    Bummer.

    It depends on how the coupon is worded. JoAnn's has one the is for one item, that's probably the one you can use for batting. Hancock's is for fabric. However they are having a Labor Day sale, batting is on sale for 50% off, today and tomorrow.

    thanks for the insight....I never in all the years I have shopped at JoAnn's thought of either interfacing or batting as a fabric and therefore use the coupon for it.....now I am wiser and hopefully a bit richer...let's see how my local store handles it..........

    Most everything I wanted to use my 60% coupon for was on sale. Getting pretty disgusted with Joanne's games.
