    Where do you buy yours, and what is the cost per yard? Joanne's had some white today, that was old and dingy, and even had a black squiggly mark on one part.
    Has anyone bought from here?

    I haven't bought from there. I ordered a bolt of kona indigo blue from my LQS and because I bought the entire bolt (22 yds) I paid just a little over $6 a yard for it.

    My sister ordered from there. It took weeks to get processed and then they had run out of the material she needed.

    The ones from Joann's are not the same as the Kaufman Kona Solids. If you compare them side by side, you will see the difference. The Kaufman ones are thicker, press up really nice and are great to work with.

    Check out this link. You can search and check prices from many places all in one search. I've seen them for under $5 yard.

    I get all my Kona cotton solids at Hancock's of Paducah. I get black by the bolt and other colors in 10 yard cuts (think I have about 20 colors plus PFD right now). It goes for $3.98 a yard at Hancock's of Paducah.

    As for the claim that the Kona solids at JoAnn's are of a lesser quality, that issue has been addressed before and Kaufman Fabrics replied "in person" here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-33854-3.htm#746926

    I've bought Kona solids here: http://www.fabricshack.com/cgi-bin/S...man_konacotton They have a huge selection.

    I really love sewing with Kona. It's so crisp and has a lovely hand.

    When I purchase Kona Solids - I make CERTAIN it says KAUFMAN on it. Hobby Lobby carries it. Not sure about my Joanns. The prices is under $4-$5.00 a yard on sale. LOVE IT!

    I buy my Kona Cotton from Dutchland Quilt Patch in Meyerstown PA. The price on line is 3.43, 3.55 and 4.15 a yard. They send out immediately and have a great selection of all kinds of fabrics.

    Just today I bought some Kona black at Hancock Fabrics for $5.99 but used a 40% off coupon. They do have sales once in a while and that is the time to stock up. Another good source for discounted Kona is the Creation Station in Buellton, CA.

    I found that Hancocks of Paducah, and Joannes, has cheap quality 100% kona cottons. When I asked them about it, they said "it will soften up, after being washed. www.fabrics.com, has the best quality kona 100% cotton I have found, it is so soft and easy to work with. You can actually see, and feel the difference. I fot it for $3.48 per yard, on sale, and the whites were $4.48 per yard, on sale. Thanks for the replys and info.

    I have bought from Hancocks of Paducah, some have a quantity discount, but recently started buying from Hobby Lobby. You can use the 40% off coupon found on their website. Hobby Lobby regular price is $5.99, with the coupon $3.59.
