I got one of these from Joann's and love it. They have an online only deal right now. And, you can use the 50% off coupon that's on the homepage. Online they will let you use it even if it's on sale...they, just take the % off of the original $$. This is the best deal I've seen since I first started looking at them...I think it's at least $10.00 less then I payed for it. Even with shipping...

When you add shipping and taxes it's about $26.00....that's a great deal!

I got one for Christmas along with a yarn gauge.... I was so excited - Yeah!!! It works great. I would recommend winding up cheap yarn, ie... red heart, to get the hang of it. My first few cakes were a bit tight. Now I have to ask for the swift for my b-day - that is supposed to help with the tension when winding balls.

Enjoy your ball winder.
