I bought all the fabric at 70 Percent off. xmas stuff and got 8 yds of soft and bright batting for 50 percent off. Some other material that was marked down and it was 50 percent off of that. I am so tickeled.

    Good for you! I would like to have done some shopping but my Christmas company doesn't leave until tomorrow. Maybe I'll go then, but the flyer from today's newspaper didn't indicate that kind of sale. Hmmm - yarn, but not fabric. I should call first, I guess. Or maybe I'll check my LQS instead.

    That's a long trip but you did so well. Maybe I'll slip out to my not-so-local LQS today!
    Happy happy sewing.

    Joann must not have nationwide pricing, because I was very disappointed when I went there yesterday morning to find Christmas fabric 60% off and all other fabric 30% off.

    Any of you from the MN/western WI area should check out the Mill End Textile stores if they are within a reasonable driving distance. All week their bolts of fabric are 50% off and they have Benartex, Red Rooster, Windham, and a lot more I can't think of at the moment. Usually the price is $5.99 per yard, so that brought it down to $3 per yard! I could have spent all day and all my money there, I had so much fun.

    Most of their fabrics are of beautiful quality, but some are blemished one way or another. I recommend a good visual scan of the bolt before having it cut. For such a good price, I'll gladly take the time to do so.

    Oh how I wish they would open a store in my area, but right now I can only shop there when I visit my mom in Eau Claire. That means whenever I shop there I have feelings of guilt that a. I'm not spending time with my family that I've traveled three hours to visit, and b. my family is watching my children so I can shop. Perhaps it's a good thing, or I would devote way too much time to finding the perfect fabrics and not enought time sewing. I love choosing fabrics!

    Joann's will be having a New Year's sale beginning Thursday through Jan. 2. There is an extra 10% off coupon that came in the sales flyer. Remember to take your flyer into the store and have it scanned in order to remain on their mailing list.

    They closed the JoAnn's here, so I have to wait until I visit mom in Denver 250 miles away.
    I'll just have to shop my stash for now.
    We do have a couple of LQS's though.
