Summer is flying by here in the Northern hemisphere, and in the Midwest it's been a wet one! I hope you're all staying safe and comfortable wherever you are! Since it's Thursday here (already!) it's time again to roundup all the weekly deals and coupons at the craft stores - so we can all save money and time while yarn shopping this weekend!
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! Make sure too that you know your craft store policies – many take competitor’s coupons, and this can really pay off! Please note that the JoAnn and Craftsy links in this article are affiliate links - but that doesn't change your prices at all!

On the site, enter your zip code to get the coupons for the store closest to you. This week I got a coupon for 40% off one regular priced item. Be sure to check your receipts – there are usually coupons printed at the bottom. And at checkout this week I got a flyer with a coupon for 40% off my entire regular priced purchase good June 30th only, so stop in and see if you can get one. Michaels has a mobile app with available 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.
The new yarns are in! It was so exciting to see the bins full again at our local store. They've even got Red Heart Unforgettable in several colors - that was impossible to find just a few months ago! And they've got Red Heart Gumdrop as well - featured in the Big Boy's Cabled Golf Cap. Advertised sales include Sashay for $3.99 and Starbella for $5.99. There might be a bit of clearance left too, if you're lucky!
The current flyer has a 40% off any regular-priced item coupon good July 13, as well as a 40% off coupon good July 7-13. On the inside is another coupon for 10% off you total purchase, good June 30 - July 6. And if you have a student ID, July is Student Discount Month - you can get 20% off! 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, click the logo above, 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).
