    Thanks, that's a real deal on the Vogue patterns!

      Sigh - I wish we had a JoAnn's in Canada!  Those are great prices.

      1. Tatsy | | #3

        Maybe they're available online?

        1. Gloriasews | | #6

          All kinds of stuff is available online, but, when we order from Canada, the prices are prohibitive, with exchange rate & postage.  I try to only order online from a Canadian supplier.  I have to really, really want something from the States to pay the extra, & only if I'm flush at the time :).

        Big Sigh here too.  I also live here in Canada.  Cheapest we get are $3.49 for Simplicity/Butterick/McCall's and $5.99 for Vogue at Fabricland.  Sighhhhhhh

          I'd love to know how to take advantage of these sales online. In NYC, there are wonderful fabric and notions shops but few places to purchase commercial patterns (I still need a pattern and set of instructions for my garments!).

          I emailed JoAnn's and Hancock's about this as I was dissappointed to learn that their sales were "in store only."

          Be happy, Heather, that you still have a Fabricland!  Ours closed last Christmas.  They did say they would reopen in a new location in the spring, but not a peep has been heard about them since.  They even stopped sending me the flyers.  So, unfortunately, Walmart is the only affordable fabric place here, so I sure hope they don't get rid of their small fabric section.  I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet & drive to Quesnel, as there is a Fabricland there (sigh).

            Wow, I must count my blessings that I have places like JoAnns to go to.  I also purchase lots of fabric when the International Quilt Show comes to our area.  I have a collection of Black & White fabric from the one in April of this year that I bought.  I just viewed Sewing With Nancy and she has a new book out called Already Cut, Ready to Sew.  This is where she makes quilted projects with the new fabric jelly rolls they are selling now, and fat quarter packets.

            You sure can count your blessings for fabric shops like JoAnn's - also that you have sewing shows on TV.  Lucky you!  Have you seen Nancy's 'Landscape Quilts' book?  It's very good & well illustrated.

    Thank you for the sale update. I often wish for Vogue sales. To those of you wishing for fabric shopping, I have just learned that I am very spoiled in the Minneapolis, St. Paul area. We have two different great warehouse type sources fabrics that are open to anyone. as well as Hancock Fabric and JoAnn Fabrics. I thought all big cities had this fabric bonanza.

      You're going to make me cry! I know Munsingwear has gone out of business, but I still remember going in there and looking over what seemed like acres of fabrics, ribbing, and anything else you could want to use in making a tee shirt. I know I'm lucky here with three chain stores in town, one independent warehouse store, and more quilt shops than you can count on one hand, but boy do I still miss the access to all those lovely knits.

    Whenever a pattern sale like that comes around, I do make a list. Then I go to Joanns and they NEVER, EVER have any of the patterns on my list, even though I go the first morning of the sale! The only patterns in the drawer are ones that aren't popular, or odd sizes, or stuff that you can sew without a pattern anyway, like home dec. Has anyone else experienced this? A friend told me that she witnessed an employee pulling patterns around closing time the night before a sale. This doesn't surprise me. Bait and switch?

    1. rodezzy | | #13

      Luckily I haven't experienced that on the first day of the sale.  I usually go as soon as they open on the first day if I can.  They are near where I work.  I can leave whenever I want to (fortunately).  I use the time I would for lunch.  I'm sorry to hear that.  That SUCKs!!!!
