Christmas Elves, start your shopping engines.  The sales for us are beginning already.  No on wants to pay more than they need to for anything right? I’m going to do a rundown of the current JoAnns and Hancock ads.  These prices are good until October 28 and some are good even longer.

Hancock Fabrics

They advertise on the from page “All about fleece sale” $3.83, lowest prices of the season!  But when you turn the page, those prices do not hold true for the novelty, Disney, and other fleece.  Eh, it’s okay we like a lower price, right?

  • The $3.83 fleece includes the following:
  • Anti-pill fleece solids save $6
  • Glacier & Simply fleece Prints save $7
  • Glacier Fleece Solids save $5

So, if you are sewing an adult size blanket, you would need two yards, I found this out the hard way.  $7.66 for an adult size blanket. I put a backing on mine that’s really fluffy, so it cost more but, this is a GREAT deal!

30% of character print fleece, typically for a child, one yard needed. These are running around $6-$12

Team fleece, with a few exceptions are running about $10 a yard. Again for an adult, $20 pretty good deal and people love them!

For anyone making clothing for Christmas the apparel fabric is at a great level.

  • Special Occassion 30% off
  • Fall coordinates 40% off 
  • Knits, matte, fashion,jersey, and ponte 40%
  • 50% of all of the following! Average about $6 a yard
