    Ditto ! and I am going again today to a different Joann's- and it isn't all fabric either - grabbing some extra pix frames - I'm there when they open. I was speaking with one of the ladies at the cutting counter. She said the new owners take over next week (probably 4/1/11) and they are already cutting hours of the people at the cutting counters - so - I gues the cutomer service won't be there. I'll get more info from my favorite Jonan's this AM and let you all know. I am leaving all my friend coupons at the counter - so they can use them for others who don't have their own. You can also take a 40% coupon from the next sale and use that and the 25% is off the TOTAL !

    I live about 20 miles from small Joanns store and went there they did not have the fabric on sale and would not honor it. I could have gone 28 miles the other way to larger Joanns. I emailed Joanns and told them they need to specify in there ad that it is only good at the larger stores. Need less to say I will not go to that Joanns again.

    Sounds like a fun shopping experience. Wish we had a Joann's closer - maybe I could have some fun too. LOL. :thumbup:

    Our Joann's is building a new store. They really do not have a lot in the store right now. It is to open in June I believe. Kinda of upsetting when you get the flyer and it is not in the store.

    I had both a 40% of any item NOT on sale or a reduced price. Got 40% off a crib size batting. The brocade I wanted to get the big cut on...... they took $4.00 off the $12.99 a yard... Not as much as I would have gotten with 40% off... DANG it. Anyway, I spent $30 on what would have been $77.00 as I also had the 25% off total sale. I think it was good a deal, not as good as I had hoped though.

    I was so pysched to go. But, there was so little for sale I came home with a spool of thread and a few fat quarters. The quarters were 30% off. The batting that is usually 40% off wasn't on sale, nor anything else that I could have used. Guess I'm spoiled by their usual sales. DISAPPOINTED.

    I'm going today to see what kind of trouble I get into, and visit a couple of LQS that are not open on Sunday. I love the new Retro Fabrics that keep coming out.

    I just needed a few items -- thread, bias tape, marking pen -- came to $27 after a $7 discount -- I gave a coupon to the lady in line in front of me who was buying notions for a sewing basket -- she saved $32 -- spent $100 -- Joann's really must want business because of the all the coupons, several every week

    I did see that they have a great deal on a bolt of warm and natural. I don't need any right now or I would take advantage of that.

    I wound up saving - after all the price reductions and discount coupons more than I spent - Spent $117 on $300 worth of fabric and photo frames ! I had 40% off coupns X 2, bought sale items at 40-50% off, remnants and am a very happy camper - on sale is the only way I shop !

    I have fabric shopping envy right now. We don't have a Joanns for miles around! In fact, where I live, the only place to buy fabric is at Walmart! Boo-hoo!

    I went for a very brief time yesterday to get some Kona solid fabric. It was on a 40% sale and then used my 25% discount at the register. Probably the best buy on the Kona I will be seeing for they have raised the price. Jo Anns is a good place to buy certain things when they have their 50% off sales. The only fabric I seen for 50% off was the Debbie Mum and I haven't had good luck with what I tried out. I do think we have to look for the best buys we can to keep our hobby half way affordable.

    OK Ladies, I think I have won the best buy award at Joann's. It may not count to some of you because I didn't purchase any fabric. What I got was a package of 45mm Olfa blades from the clearance section that was marked 75% off with 3 missing. When I checked my receipt it showed the reg. price 34.99, sale 20.99, 75% discount -15.74, for a final price of 5.25. And guess what, all 5 blades are there. I also got a slim tip for my mini iron marked down to .97. I had the clerk scan both my sale ad and coupons I received in the mail just to keep getting them, not thinking I would get any additional discount, but it took off .24. Grand total of 5.98 with a savings of 29.98.
