Another thread holder?

Last night on my way home from work, I stopped at the JoAnn's that is really close to me and is closing very soon. There is going to be a Super JoAnn's opening that is going to be just as close and they are consolidating the stores. I have been in the one that is closing a few times since the closing was announced, but the discount was still only about 40%. Not that great since I could get that on just about anything with a coupon at other stores.

Just for a little history, here is what my thread holder looks like since the renovations have been complete. Full!


Last night, the thread was discounted 75%! And there was still a good amount of Gutermann's so I stocked up! I got a few spools of hand quilting thread to start using in my bindings. Most of the bigger spools are the hand quilting. The rest is just for various other things that I might need the colors for.


What I was really looking for was zippers. They were 50% off. I picked up a few and will probably check back in a week to see what the discount is then.


I'm pretty excited about the deals I got!! But now I have to find something to do with the thread. :-D

I also stopped at WalMart and picked up a couple of things. When I got home, I started doing a bit of clean up in the house. Max was a little anxious so he had to sit in his rocking chair to feel better. He is stretching to smell something from outside.

You did good! I need to stock up on some more hand quilting thread. I only have 2 spools. I could use a green for my next binding project.

Good buy on the thread! It seems much easier to find good deals on fabric than on notions. I don't blame you for jumping right on it.

What great deals! Looks as though I will be able to start crafting with you again as I no longer have a job. All depends on how I feel.. Smiles.. Hoping to kick up the blog again

Great buy! Wonder if that will happen when our store moves to the other side of town? Fingers crossed.
