Thought I'd pass the information along. Not sure if it's in store or not, but I was planning on going there tonight anyways, so I'll let you know if it's a store sale too!

Happy Shopping! :heart:

They're having a huge sale in store -- not just yarn, virtually everything in the store. I had a 50% off coupon and didn't even get to use it bc everything was already on sale lol.

I went to our JoAnns a few weeks ago, their yarn selection was pitiful. :ick: Nothing there that I was DESPERATE to have..but I bought 2 balls of LB Wool Ease anyway. It was 2/4.00 when I bought it.

ugh they always do that, i don't get too excited about their 50% coupons anymore because they always have everything i would have used it for on sale anyway. i end up using it for something that would have only cost me a couple of bucks anyway... :!!!:

as it is, the sale is often pretty close to equal to what i would have gotten for the coupon so i guess it doesn't matter. :wall:

I went off running to their website to see the Paton's wool and SWS.. but they are not on sale.. and of course the sew e-z board is on sale so no 50% off for that LOL :rofl:

What I don't understand is the Paton's Wool is in the picture of the pop up saying every skein :rofl: but it is still showing 5.99 for me.. maybe they messed up and will fix the problems after getting a few e-mails... :shrug:

You can still use the 50% off coupons when stuff is on sale. I did for a 40% off coupon once. It just takes the percentage off the regular price, not the sale price, but sometimes you still save money like that.

yup you just have to play with that coupon and whatever free shipping coupons you can find to see what the better deal is! :thumbsup:

I don't know if this true for everything, but, the last time I was at Joanne's, I bought something for knitting that was 20.99. The same kit was at Michael's for 15.99. :!!!:
That was a huge difference!!! I always wonder if you are getting a deal when you go, I'll only go if I have a coupon.

my goodness... return it and buy the one at michaels! I have returned cut fabric to Joanns before with no trouble (well cut off the bolt... no like i had cut a pattern out of it...lol)

i would think returning a kit would be no trouble.

I just went to the store & did not see anything about the yarn being on sale. There was a sign saying 40% off needles & crochet hooks, but nothing about yarn. I did end up buying one skein of yarn, but only because I had a 40% off coupon.

So, maybe it's just online only :shrug:

:wall: I knew that.. why did I forget that :shrug: I'm glad I didn't say anything about the 50% off in the note :rofl: that could've been funny though I guess..

jeanius80~ I love the natural pink colorway and think it would make a really pretty Entrelac purse.. all the reviews I've read though say it doesn't felt as pretty.. I think I might still get a skein.. do a swatch and see... :shrug:

I just went to look too. What I think is funny is the on the pop up window that says "every skein of yarn on sale" there is a picture of Patons Classic Merino Wool....yet looking at Patons yarn on their site, it is not on sale it is still listed at $5.99 :!!!:

I just went and looked and in the quick glance i did it looks like at this point the only ones listed that aren't listed at a sale price are three paton's yarns... wool, chacha, and SWS.

I didn't look at allllllll yarns but scanned around and those were the only three i saw that didn't have a sale price on them so maybe they are getting there.

If you all do decide to order from them online, remember that Ebates offers 6% cash back on them as well! :thumbsup:

As does FatWallet.com (sorry, forgot to mention that :doh: ) And usually they'll post other various coupon codes too. http://www.fatwallet.com/store.php?store=325


ETA---they should really get KP's on that program! :teehee:

Bought nothing but a crochet hook. All the other yarn was just Lion Brand...(dont needany) and TONS AND TONS of furry stuff.

:grrr: false advertising in my opinion. I just emailed them, as someone mentioned earlier not all yarns are listed on sale, and nothing states an exception on the website. Shame, shame, shame on them. Imagine all the business they would have made if they had SWS on sale! (which is $7.99 on the website and only $5.99 at Micheal's) :shrug:
