Oh my gosh, what a steal!

I just got home from my local Michaels. I stop in once a week or so to see if they've redone the yarn dept yet. Well, just this morning, they priced a huge bin of yarn at 99 cents a skien! And while the top layer was all eyelash acrylic type stuff, one I dug down a bit I hit paydirt! I bought $198 worth of yarn for.... wait for it.... $36

I got 6 skiens of Lion Brand Homespun to make a throw, and the rest of it was Patons Pure Wool, a few mohair, and a ton of Bernat Cashmere Blends.

They also had a ton of CottonEase and Kroy Sock yarns, but I needed to buy groceries so I had to restrain myself

Man, do I ever get a rush from a good deal! LOL

Sounds like all your locations are finally prepping for their new expanded yarn section. There should be tons of clearance sales coming to all the Michael's locations soon, if they're not already there. (Though my store still hasn't started any major clearancing yet...)

I went today because I had the 20% off coupon from your entire order between 9am - 1pm. I didn't see a huge clearance bin like the OP mentioned, but I did get a good deal on my yarn.

I asked a sales associate who was working in the yarn aisle today about the new section and he said they have received some new things in the back, but they are waiting until it's ALL there so they can set up/stock the new yarn section all at one time instead of in pieces. Makes sense.

Also he said there would be lots of new yarn specially for Michaels. He went over to ask his manager while I was there for a better idea of when this would all take place, and he came back and told me that she said end of May.

I knit under my desk at work.
