You guys are all so lucky! I am wondering if perhaps they are not having a $0.99 deal at the two Michaels near me because I'm in Canada and you're in the U.S.? Just a guess -- but I haven't seen any clearance stuff like that here! :(

No, I am in Canada! But there was no bins- just shelf tickets changed. There also wasn't much left when I got there!

I'm in Canada! New Brunswick. Over the last couple of months, there've been a few yarns here and there marked down in the aisle. It was only Saturday morning that they filled the bin and marked the whole lot down to 99 cents. I just happened to luck out and show up just a few hours after they'd marked it all down.

Thanks for posting this (I think). I don't go to Michael's all that often because it's on the other side of town, but I decided to check it out today - I got a ton of Bernat Cashmere for 99 cts each, along with some Bernat Satin Sport, also 99 cts. All very pretty colors - now to decide what to do with it

Oh, and someone working there said they should have it all re-set with the new yarns next week.

Wish I'd gotten there sooner. But, I did get a little bit today..........left there only $12.00 lighter. Color doesn't show very good...the bernat satin is plum, a very pretty shade

The needles are the kind that light up...couldn't resist and the other is a knitting spool. I saw a bunny pattern made from this and had it on my list of toys to make...
