Happy Valentine's Day! I don't know about you, but I love yarn, and I love to save money when I buy it! If you feel the same, then read on to see how you can save money on yarn 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!
