I tried again today to buy a few of the new Vogue fall patterns at Joann's sale. They still aren't there. The new catalogs aren't even there. Is this just a problem in Utah? Has anyone been able to buy these patterns at Joann's yet? I know there is usually some delay between the release of the Vogue Pattern magazine and the arrival of the patterns but this seems unusually long. Am I just tooo anxious to get my hands on 1315? Looks like the perfect cozy winter dress to me.

I purchased that pattern today at JoAnn store in Concord, CA. But usually the newer patterns are at another JoAnn store first. Good luck!

I didn't even try for any Vogues at my local JoAnn's yesterday. I did go through the McCall's pattern book which was on the table, and chose 6 patterns. Only two were in the drawers. The others, all new, didn't even have number dividers in the drawer. Out of 6 Burda's only two were in stock also. I did notice that there was only one pattern of each Burda in the drawer. If you want a popular one, it may take you weeks to get it, unless you are there the day they stock them.

I gave up and started ordering the Vogue patterns online when they have a sale, usually 3.99. I keep an eye on the basket for shipping to keep the price down. I think that the shipping stays the same in my area for 1-4 patterns and takes a jump at 5 patterns, and so on. Even though JoAnn's is close, I was wasting too much time getting few, or none, of the Vogue patterns on sale. Played havoc with my sewing plans too.

I just started doing this this year. Already, I've caught a sale that was ending just as the new patterns were introduced. It seemed that the sale prices were gone the next day. So, it helps to keep an eye on the site if you are watching for the new patterns. Also picked some fantastic discontinued Vogue patterns from the site this year when they had a 1.99 sale on those.

Speaking of sales, there's a big one on the Vogue (and Butterick/McCalls/KwikSew) sites right now, through Thursday. Great time to grab that pattern.

True. I gave up on Jo's last year. The sales online are significant and shippping and handling for under 5 patterns for me is only 4 USD. That's less than the price of gas to drive to my nearest Joanns only to not have the patterns I wanted in stock or not in my size.

Thanks so much for all your input. I can see that I need to rejoin Club BMV. I didn't realize their sales were so good now.

Again, thanks! Headed to BMV website.

I am another one who gave up on Joann's for patterns (and pretty much everything else except for last minute got to haves). There are nover any books to look through and when I do find something that number is always gone.

I got in on the BMV sale today.... I have not joined yet and even at that I am pleased with the prices I get when there is a sale.
