    The sad news is, if you don't use a coupon, you have to mortgage your house in order to buy minky.
    I haven't seen it for less than $12.00.

    I never buy it with out my Joann's coupons. Same story with chenille. If you are not on their mailing list you can sign up on line and I think you get an immediate coupon. Can always check just inside the door at the store as well to see if they have any flyers left.

    You should check out Minkydelight.com If you are willing to buy 10 yards they have good prices(about $10) a yard. They have a wonderful selection and it looks like when you use the code they give you it comes to $100.96 with shipping for 10 yards to here in TX. I've not ever ordered from them so can't vouch for the product or service but I intend to give them a try in the next few weeks.

    Alien quilter! Thanks for the tip about the great prices @ Joanne Fabrics. I may go that route rather than ordering 10 yards without being able to feel it! :)

    JoAnne's has lots of coupons good starting tomorrow (3/6). I was in the store this week, and they gave me several copies of the coupons. Hope they will be available in the store also.

    Keep checking with fabric.com and put "minky" and "minkee" in the search boxes. I've bought some lovely minky fabrics for crazy cheap, but you have to see it as soon as they add it to their inventory or you miss it.

    By crazy cheap, I'm talking $3-6/yd by the time I added my 20% off Thank You coupon. :shock: Practically giving it away.

    If you go to the JoAnn link posted earlier on here it is listed for 50 percent off, 6.49 to 7.49 per yard.

    The minky is wider than most fabric and seems to go a long ways. I ordered some from Minky Delights Fabric and liked the fabric. The best luck I have had is when our LQS runs a sale or has precut end of bolt type fabric. There is a big difference in the feel of fabric. If you want really soft, textured go with I think it is called eyelash, it is swirled and it is so soft you can hardly feel it.

    This is the very soft kind

    If you are on their email, new coupons out this AM - one 50% off non sale item, several 40% off coupons.....You might check their website and see if you can print these from there.

    While the price is high, remember that it is usually 60" wide. :D
