    Was told by a co-worker that the Joann's in Lakewood OHIO was closing and that everything was 50-75% off. Well had to pick up DH from work and how convenient that it was within a mile from his work. The fabric was 75% off and 100% cotton and are 2 yds and starting with tan/brown/pink polka dot on cream outwards they are 3 yrds or more. All notions and batting was 50% off. DH had control of the cart or we would have had to get another cart. My original total was $317 and ended at $112. I don't know who was more surprized me or the cashier!!!! :-D :lol: Now to the sewing room I go!

    If you live near Lakewood or know where it is they are closing their doors on April 11 for good. The store is located on Warren Road and Detroit Ave. in the plaza.

    You got some great prices on your new stash. I would have been very bad and probably spent way to much. Good thing we don't have a Joann's here. :)

    A few years back, our Joann's closed and opened a new super Joann. I also was able to buy fabrics at 75" off. That is how I got my great stash of novelty juvenile fabrics. I was into I Spy fabrics at the time.

    I love a good bargain. I recently came across a small fabric shop that deals with closeouts/oops/etc. They are a good source for me when I need some colorful backing to piece or just to stock up on basics. Costs are a reasonable $2-$6 and its great quality cotton like Cranston, South Seas, and even some wilmington if I am lucky.

    The girls didn't know and of course the manager wasn't saying. They had alot of fabric left and thread. One of the ladies has 25 years with them and she said they didn't give her an option to go else where. She doesn't know what she was going to do and she was way older than I. We was comparing years with a company and I told her I have worked with the schools for 31 years and she was like you are so young to be thinking about retiring. I responded with " I want to quilt full-time instead of part-time". She said I have to work on my priorities! I didn't say anything more because I didn't want to disrespect my elders, but I was thinking what is wrong with my priorities, I have raised my kids, worked hard all my life since I was 15 and you tell me to work my my priorities. I was truly wanting to ask what else do I need to do to enjoy some time off. :shock: :oops: :roll:

    DARN!!! that is what I get for not checking board everyday! My DD lives in North Olmsead and I was just there today! I could have gone to that Joanns. Darn! Maybe next week when I am up there. I did go to Abygail's Quiltry in Olmstead Falls today and got fabric $8/yd originally for $3.99 with 20% for getting end of bolt. that is not too bad. They have a nice clearance room.
