Well folks, I just got back from my local Hancock's. I got roughly 21 yards(12 separate cuts) of material for $72.64. A savings of over $215.00. That's at least 3 pair of pants, 1 knit cardi, 5 blouses, 2 dressy jackets and at least one skirt.

The "Spot the Bolt" is on a crazy sale (mostly $3.98 per yard, but some lower). Plus they had a 15% off total purchase that expires today(saved an extra $12+ with that). I went to the store on Friday and mention to the manager that even at 60% off, $17.99 a bolt was just not looking very good. She told me to hold off till today, because a sale was going to start. I filled a basket with what I wanted and she rolled it to the back..she's such an enabler

Oh my gosh, did you score!! They all look lovely, but I especially like the two in the front right....the fern-like print and the green linen or linen-like fabric, maybe it's the olive green poly suiting. They're all very nice. I don't have a Hancock's, and it's a darn good thing.

I really like the green and brown and the fern print that looks as it it would go with both of those. Great fall colors.

Thanks everyone. I just wish there were Hancock stores everywhere, so folks could get these deals. I love that fern print, it will go well with the brown and the olive green.

I recently picked up Simplicity 2229 and that was my inspiration in yesterday's fabric purchase. I want to make some "go to" outfits. I did this last year with tops and slacks(skirts too). I paired them up on hangers with clips. Made it so simple to just reach in the closet and grab a hanger, top and bottom already matched up and ready to go.

One of the best things about my new town is there is a Hancocks! I've been scouting the sale tables the last couple weeks. I bought a few things but when I saw the new sale I grabbed a bunch I'd been looking at but still didn't want to spend $10 a yard on.

They have some gorgeous RPLs in plaids and hearing bones, some very nice pontes with rayon in them, and I also bought some soft and lovely linens. I washed them all up and they are still wonderful!

I think I saved something like $300!

Subject: Great trip to Hancocks Date: 8/20/13 8:48 PM

Ah...I got off work today and migrated to Hancock! I had no intentions on going there!!! I bought 4 pieces (plus a remnant) for $24 (with $5 off coupon). 2 pairs of pants, 2 skirts and a shirt is the plan for the fabrics.

yay me!

Plus - Burda is on sale starting Thursday at Hancock so I'll probably be back. Oooh. I should go to a different one to see if there are more awesome options.
