I know BMV often has this sale price (of course they seem to have sale pricing all over the place) but I noticed the current Joann's flyer has Vogue coming up on sale for 4.99. Hmmm.
I wonder if this is the "bargain" sale price of the future at J's? I wonder if BMV will still have 3.99 sales, especially those with the member discount? It'll be interesting to see what happens, I did not continue my BMV membership but if this is the trend and we can still get those members only discounts off 3.99 sales... it may be well worth it even with shipping and Joann's nearby (not to mention how much I'd save by not going in and buying a bunch of other stuff... ) Any insights?

I have been waiting for a Vogue sale at JA and noticed the 4.99 price also. I have not been by to pick it up. No idea if this will be the new sales price

You guys ate just soooooo spoilt. In Australia, Spotlight has their Vogue pattern sale on now $5.
And this is the first time I have ever seen such a markdown.
I've bought ALL my wish list stash. Some of these patterns would normally be $35.!!!

Spoiled as we may be compared to other countries, I had the same panic when I saw this in Joann's flyer as well! =) My immediate thought was that I would continue buying from my BMV membership (which has paid off, I can't tell you how much this has saved me from getting suckered into at Joann's, not to mention not having to scour all the stores to find the inventory/sizing in patterns I want) but guess we'll see if BMV prices go up too.

You aren't alone, I had the same fear! I hope this is just a JoAnn's thing, but I suspect it's kind of like the $1.99 for Butterick/McCalls/Simplicity that they started awhile ago in lieu of 99 cents.

Perhaps so. But then you have all that extra $$$ for Vogue patterns that we in the U.S. spend on shipping StyleArc here from AU!

Hmm. I thought Butterick was one of those that flipflopped between 99cents/$1 and $1.99. You mean I should think about not waiting on my list now that they're 1.99? Of course they will be again...

I'm guessing it was a typo or it will alternate between 3.99 and 4.99, especially if Burda is going to run frequent sales at Joann's.

I'm also surprised at the increase in price. I'm in quite a rural area, where that amount of money for a local product is all the motivation I need to buy online.... rather than support my local Joanns.

it was also particularly surprising since we recently had a mccalls pattern sale for .70 each, that was followed by the 4.99 vogue, mccalls raised up to 1.99, and now burda at 2.50 (which in all the 10 years or so I've never seen up here).

On another note, I see that hancocks just finished offering vogue patterns for 3.99. hmm. I guess its not a universal hike in prices. Either way, unless Vogue goes down to $3.99, I don't need to buy, especially from my local store.

It's $1 more, half the price of a grande at starbucks. I'm not bothered by Joann's Vogue pricing but I am bored with the Vogue offerings.

Both Hancock and Joann have had different prices on pattern sales for the last year or two. The Simplicity/McCall/Butterick $0.99 sale isn't as common any more, and it seems they are swapping between $1.99 and $2.99 more often, but Vogue seems to have been mostly $3.99. I wonder if they aren't playing with the prices to see if sales drop off, or are getting us used to the idea that prices will be going up?

My purchases have slowed down dramatically - due to the recent offerings and the huge quantity of patterns I already have.

I got an email for a sale on the pattern site, as I'm sure others did as well. $4.99 for Vogue... but club BMV discounted price is $3.99, the 20% off. So maybe 4.99 is the benchmark sale price. I checked the Joann's flyer and upcoming sale is 4.99 for Vogue... so I renewed my club BMV membership. Even with shipping it'll save me vs. the other stuff.... that falls into my hands if I go to Joann's, and the handful or so of Kwik Sews I may buy in a year are never that low (5.59) at J's. Plus I was just browsing around the StyleArc site and by comparison this is a savings. There, how's that for justification??
