JoAnn's disappointing Labor Day sales

I have a mountain of fabric in my home. Seriously, a MOUNTAIN of fabric. It took me a few hours but I went through each piece of fabric, matched it up with a project, and put all the matched up projects in my binder. Now I'm ready to shop for notions and the timing couldn't be better. The only 2 local shops that sell apparel fabric are Hancock's and JoAnn's...pathetic, I know. Both are having sales on notions this weekend so I'm psyched to get all my supplies. I grabbed my binder of projects and headed out to JoAnn's on Friday evening. (Hancock's notions sale isn't until Sunday.)

I headed straight to the aisle with threads and zippers. No sale signs?! I went back up to the front of the store and grabbed the sales flyer. "Buy One, Get One...Notions Wall." Oh, darn. Just to confirm, I spoke with a sales associate. Sadly, threads and zippers are not kept in the one aisle that is labeled "notions wall." This really took the wind out of my sails. What am I going to buy now? A few shoulder pads and needles and that's it? Disappointed, I grabbed those few notions and wandered around the store. I did manage to find some lightweight cottons I have been eyeing for awhile but couldn't justify paying $6/yard for. They were half off so I snatched them up. Overall, this was still a very disappointing shopping trip. JoAnn's divided all my notions into highest and lowest cost categories. So guess which ones were free...the $0.99 velcro but I paid full price for $5 shoulder pads. I hate to return things but I can get all this stuff 50% off at Hancock's on Sunday.

Pics of clearance cotton fabrics I purchased: (projects will be posted in "Projects" area)I bought this lightweight woven in baby blue and lilac too.

I bought this pattern in a fuschia color as well.
