    Red face Score at Joanns

    Went to Joanns yesterday for some batting with my extra 10% off coupon and happened to wander over to the red tag clearance section which is right next to the batting. As part of their Vets Day sale, all red tag was an extra 50% off. The good news is that it was full of beautiful quilting coordinates! Most were marked $5 and some were $4! With my extra 10% that made them $2.25 and $1.80/yd! Needless to say it was stash building time. It's not quite as good as some of your thrift store finds, but I was able to pick patterns and colors I like for a steal so I was quite happy.

    I ran into that sale also, I used my 25% off the total and ended up with 45 yards added to the stash with about $45 taken off the total. It made the trip well worth it
