They got rid of their cross-stitch supplies a while back - no more running out to get embroidery floss when I run out. Next week, we're getting a Michael's which will cut my current 20-mile drive for a stupid skein of embroidery floss to about 6 miles.

I usually buy my Caron, Bernat, etc. from Joann.com. You can almost always find a free shipping or % off coupon if you google "joann" and "coupon" (without the quotes).

They have a pretty large selection of colors, and also have Vanna's Choice, which is about the same softness as Caron SS and has harder to find colors.

Sugar n Cream and Bernat Handicrafter, which are the same yarns labeled by different companies, can also be purchased there with many on-line only colors.

Hope this helps!

There are other places you can get it online with good shipping prices too

I have used http://www.knitting-warehouse.com/index.html they have a flat fee of 5.99, so I buy a bunch and stock up. I just look at what I'm planning to make and get it all at once, then the shipping is spread out. And at the price it's just 2 gallons of gas...

I was wondering why EVERYTHING was on clearance. there's almost nothing left. I had a feeling they were getting rid of the section. Walmart is 2 mins away and michaels and hobby lobby are 25 min away. That's what sucks! It's CLOSE

Mail ordering with a CC helps me get more "woman" junk mail.

It's not so bad when I'm following a pattern but I've even had patterns underestimate the yarn needed.

But mail order will get me to get around and buy some yarns Wally World didn't carry.
Of course if I would just work on all the stuff I already have yarn for it would take years before I'd have to worry about it.

I was just at our Wal-Mart store and the crafty lady told me the CSS is on sale there because they are getting in new skeins of CSS in a different oz size probably less yarn for more money .She said they are NOT closing the craft department in my Wal-Mart.

the yarn they are getting in is in bigger skeins but its the baby stuff... its' not the chunky softee.... I dont understand... it is obviously a popular product... and the Walmart stores that I go to 1/2 hr apart from each other are already super duper stores that have no reason to downsize... :(

They're going to be carrying Vanna's choice yarn. That seems to be an okay yarn, lots of good colors and won't be expensive. But not chunky.

My wal-mart is a super center already...

but maybe that's what it is (bigger skeins)... that's good 'cause it's nice to be able to run out that day when you need another skein or want to a start a sweater for the kids

I seen Vanna's choice the last time we over towards Joanns...it felt pretty soft but I didn't get any that day...so I haven't worked with it, yet

I like the Vanna's Choice yarn.

I do like yarns being carried at Walmart because most podunk towns (like mine) don't have a craft or yarn store and it's convenient. (plus, I told my husband that every time he buys another little hot wheels for my son, my daughter & I get a new ball of Peaches & Creme. MWAH HA HA This even reduces her stealing from my stash. Sometimes.)

Michaels (about 10 miles away) is too expensive unless there's a sale, we don't have Joann's here although I have heard of them, and Hobby Lobby is about 25 miles away (although I love it)
