Is there any such thing as too much yarn? If there is, I know I'm not there yet! If you need (or just gotta have) more yarn, this roundup of the best deals this week is sure to help you save money! Stop here before you head to the store and you’ll grow your stash without shrinking your wallet - and save time too!
Many of these sales only last through the weekend, so be sure to click on the name of the store for current prices if you’re shopping next week!
On the site, enter your zip code to get the coupons for the store closest to you. The only coupon I got this week is for framing - bummer! But check your receipts – there are usually coupons printed at the bottom for more savings! Michaels has a mobile app with coupons as well, so be sure to download that if you can. Sign up for the email newsletter, and Like Michaels on Facebook for more coupon opportunities.
There are only 3 yarns on sale at Michaels this week, all ribbon yarns: Sashay, Loops & Threads Flaunt, and Starbella, each about a dollar off.
The latest flyer features a coupon for 40% off any one regular-priced item that's good right now through February 2nd, and a coupon for 50% off one regular-priced item that's good from January 27th to February 2nd - so a little bit of overlap if you can wait a few days. There are also usually flyers inside the front door of the store, so always check the basket on your way in.
To get another Jo-Ann coupon, go to joann.com, and at the bottom of the page under Shop, click on Store locator. Enter your zip code (if it doesn’t already show your nearest store). When you get the results, click on “More Store Information” and a link to a coupon will pop up. On the website there is a coupon for 50% off any one item (in-store only), and an online only coupon for free shipping with a minimum $40 purchase, both good through January 26th, so check again next week to see the new coupons there. Be sure to sign up for the emails, their mailing list, get the app, and Like Jo-Ann Fabrics on Facebook for even more deals.
Current sales include Bernat Baby Coordinates, Softee Baby, Red Heart Baby Clouds, Sensations Baby, TLC Baby, Vanna’s Choice, Wool-Ease, Jiffy, Caron One Pound, Sensations Rainbow Boucle and Rainbow Classic. If you’re shopping online, be sure to check out all the yarns on sale on the website!
They have the usual printable coupon for 40% off any regularly priced item. There are an iPhone app and a new Android app that include the same 40% off coupon and ad info, and also have a feature that let you check gift card balances. You can now get the same savings on your non-Apple/Android smart phones by visiting m.hobbylobby.com and showing the cashier the coupon on your phone.
I Love This Cotton (a personal favorite!) and Yarnology Knit and Crochet Tools and Notions are on sale through the 26th.
Craftsy currently ships to the USA and Canada only, but they should have International shipping options… supposedly soon. Still waiting! If you are in the US or Canada, they've got free shipping for orders over $100.
There are tons of yarns available at Craftsy right now – too many to list them all! Lots of bright and springy colors right now too! The Amy Butler by Rowan yarns, Koigu Silk Swan, and Kollage Temptation yarns are definitely catching my eye. This is a great way to try those yarns you can’t get without a local yarn store, and snag a deal on some old favorites!
The current best choice I know of for international shipping – please let me know if you know of others! No new shipping codes up on RetailMeNot, but be sure to check there before you order - never know what'll pop up!
Now through January 30th at Herrschners there are 18 different types of yarn discounted for the Famous Maker Sale!

There are even more yarn deals on the Hot Buys page, including Red Heart Boutique Swirl and Fur Sure, Red Heart Mystic, and Bernat Tizzy and Sequin. Get on their email list for notifications when they update their sales.
Enter your zip code to get the coupons for the store closest to you. I got a coupon for 50% off any regularly priced item, good through January 26th. They’ve also started offering a Rewards Card, where you can earn money on every dollar spent - double points if you spend $25 or more before the 26th (with coupon).
