I frequently take advantage of the Wal-Mart price matching policy for groceries and it just occurred to me to try it for patterns (Hobby Lobby has Simplicity for 99 cents this week). It worked like a charm and I didn't have to contend with other sewists contending for the Simplicity books or pattern drawers. You do need to bring the advertisement with you and it may not work at all Wal-Marts, but give it a try.

you can also use your joann's coupons at michaels, and pharmacy coupons and gift card offers are usually accepted at other pharmacies, also.

My walmart takes JoAnns and Hancock Fabrics. And because it is 5 mins from my house vs the 35 mins the other two are---I buy my patterns there all the time. It does take a CSM (customer service manager) to approve though... so I always have to wait and hold up the line. But its worth it ;) Wonderful tip to share.

I wish this worked where I am - the closest fabric store is over 70 miles away, Walmart is the only place in town to buy non-quilting stuff. They have a sign posted on their pattern drawers that they will NOT price match Joann's and Hancock's pattern sale prices. :-(

Forgive me for remarking that the savings people receive at Wal-Mart are illusory, as the cost of these savings is higher than the savings themselves: Wal-Mart has a substantial role alongside other large corporate employers (which we taxpayers are subsidizing) in lowering salaries and benefits for people who work, all over the country.
