    Joann's is usually the best deal in my area (with coupons or when 40-50% off sale). I did great for a rotary cutter and multi-pack of blades on ebay. I think I paid around $20 and will have enough for at least a year's supply if not more.

    I agree that Joann's is great when you use their coupons. Sign up for their ads and receive additional coupons.

    I also like "Threads and More" as they have some supplies I can't find at most LQS and good prices.

    I got a cutting mat, 6 x 14" ruler and rotary cutter for around $25.00 with the 50% off coupon from Joann's

    I was just at Joann's yesterday and bought new rotary blades. All of the cutting boards, blades and rulers were on sale for 40% off.

    I asked the cashier if she would cancel the sale percentage and take my 50% coupon and she did. I also had another coupon for 25% off the entire order that one was used also. The quilting templates were also on sale for 50% off.

    I spent $10.00 more than I had planned to. But I think the bargains I got were well worth the monies spent.

    I hope this helps. If you don't have a coupon look by the pattern areas. Sometimes they have free Joann craft ideas magazines with current coupons on the back cover.

    You can also sign up for coupons from JoAnn's online. They give online coupons as well as in-store coupons :D

    Jhittle is by far the lowest price I have found. The website is horrible to navigate but once you get the idea of how it works, the prices are fantastic. If you don't see what you need, just call and they usually have it for a very good price.

    I don't know if you have a Hancock's in your area, but their sales are just as good as JoAnn's when it comes to supplies. Right now, until mid April, there's a sale where all cutting supplies (scissors, mats, rulers, blades, cutters, snipper's etc.) are 40% off.

    JoAnn's is going to have a sale in about 10 days where all their thread is going to be50% off.

    You can pretty much always find a coupon for JoAnn's online by clicking on this link and doing a search for JoAnn:

    http://www.retailmenot.com/

    And most any other large retailer for that matter. It has never failed me.

    I buy quilting notions on sale or clearance no matter if I need them then or not. I have found if a notion is on clearance then that means it won't be available or very hard to locate elsewhere.

    Hobby Lobby has a 40% coupon in the sunday paper every other week. I've gotten all my rulers and basics from Hobby Lobby this way.

    Usually in order to purchase wholesale from a vendor you have to have a 'for resale' tax certificate/tax id #, although I have heard of some allowing anyone who is purchasing in volume(say multiple whole bolts of fabric) to do so at the wholesale price.

    I know about 20-25 years ago I purchased the fabric for square dance skirts for a whole club that wanted identical skirts direct from the manufacturer at a price lower than we could get it from the local retailer since it was several bolts of fabric. Whether that was true wholesale pricing or just a volume discount, it was a cheaper price.

    Aren't they for wholesale only? Not retail. Is that correct?

    I order from JHittle, the only number I needed was a credit card number. :lol: No minimiun on how much you need to order either. One thing: Don't order anything with the thought you'll return it. There is a $25 restocking fee if you want to return an item. Nancy's Notions usually has sale prices on some items JHittle has so I check on her site first.

    There are some great deals on Ebay sometimes but I usually wait for a Joanne's coupon.
