It's Thursday again, and the sales and yarn deals are up again for the week! I've gotten a lot of feedback that these posts aren't as useful anymore as they were at one time. So grab the links today, and we'll try something new next Thursday!
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!

I've also heard lots of good buzz lately about Deramores, and they have both US and UK sites, with great shipping rates! Additionally, many manufacturers, such as Lion Brand, take orders directly. And they often run sales - sign up for their emails to keep up. And if you are lucky enough to have a local yarn store, be sure to shop there too if you can - small businesses need our support!
