It's Thursday again, and the sales and yarn deals are up again for the week! And this is a special weekend - in many states it's a tax holiday on clothes and shoes for back to school. But not just finished clothing - many states also allow the materials used to make clothes! So be sure to check your own state's rules and limitations to see if yarn qualifies! Either way, if you are heading to the store to buy yarn, then you can use the sales and coupons at the craft stores to save money. The weekly Crafty Coupon Roundup makes it easy!
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!
