I just received a 50% off coupon for Joann's online. It's good through the 19th. And I want a yarn swift. The lamp shade method works just fine, but I still want one. Has anyone ever purchased one from there? How's the quality?

i have used mine pretty much since i started knitting and it is great. (okay not constant use, that would be weird.) it is the same one that is used at my LYS and theirs DOES get constant use... it's great!
I just ordered the large swift and the ball winder for myself for my birthday! I get free shipping and used a 50% off coupon and a 40% off coupon (had to submit two orders) and got both for less than $70! Happy Birthday to Me!!!
I bought a wooden Swift from JoAnn's over a year ago. Mine works great -no problems with the swift at all. My plastic ball winder I got from them could be a little sturdier in construction. With some yarns I get an occasional - pop noise like it is struggling. But I have to say it is still going strong after a year without any breakage or problems other than the occasional sound effect.
