Get your Michaels' online coupons here and your Joann Fabric coupons here. Since I am not in any way affiliated with either store, I have nothing to gain by sharing this information. I offer it merely as a service to my comrades, armed with crochet hooks and ready to create all sorts of wonderful, yarny delights!

I'm especially excited about Joann's sale on Redheart yarn because I have an upcoming project that's a variation of the Giant Granny Square Afghan I blogged about, and it requires 10 skeins. This weekend, I'll be paying a visit to pick out 10 different scrumptious yarny colors. :)

Tomorrow, I have more exciting news of a crochet and yarny nature. In the meantime, Happy Shopping!!


  1. Thanks for the tips, Mary! I'm currently weaving in ends of 40 granny squares myself for a new afghan. It seems endless but I can't wait til it's done because I'm really excited about it. We painted our living room and I just HAD to go out and buy yarn to match! How could I not? It just wouldn't be right if I didn't! Hee hee ;)

    1. Ha ha! Great minds think alike, Monica. :) I've fallen in love with a grouping of colors and will soon be using them to crochet a large afghan...which I'll be redecorating a room around. Decorating a room around an afghan -- who does that?! Me, and I'm so excited about it! :D

  2. I wish we had those stores over here. We can't get some of those yarns and we don't get those great bargains either.
    I've bought things online before but by the time you pay shipping costs as well to these firms, it really doesn't save you anything, lol
    Enjoy your shopping

    1. Kim, I live in Germany most of the year, do I understand your situation. The yarn is more costly over there. Plus, I find it's very different from what I've always been used to here in the US. But at least there's yarn!
