Recently, as many other PR threads have discussed, Jo-Ann's ads have stated that only patterns up to $17.95 MSRP are included in the 5 for $5 sales. However, lots of the new patterns and designer patterns cost $18.95 MSRP,

Unable to stand the thought on not being able to continue the accumulation of my pattern hoard, I used the FB message thing to message Jo-Anns. Guess what???? They told me the $17.95 was a misprint and the sale should include patterns up to $18.95!!!! Yipee!!

Hopefully all the stores have the memo and we can once again get our dollar patterns, lol. I may print out the message and take it as back up next time the Simplicities go on sale.

WOW! Exactly what I suggested on the original post . I did not take the initiative as I was not interested in purchasing patterns.

a note may not convince the employees if the computer won't discount the patterns. Hopefully, the sale will be adjusted in the registers. The employees at my local Joann's were confused by the patterns that wouldn't ring up on sale until they read the fine print. it was a sad day for many... but now there's hope!

This is the first I've heard of the price ceiling on sale patterns ... could it be the shadow of things to come?
