Do you get excited when you find a great deal on craft supplies. I found this really cool yarn for $1 at the dollar store yesterday. It's like feathers on yarn and it knits up awesome. I feel like a little kid with a new toy and can't wait to make a funky sweater with it. Do you get that way or when you finish something that came out even better than you expected?

Its always great to get a bargain. i goto garage sales and recently got a bag full of wool for $1. Gave it to my mum as she knits for underprivledged children. Makes assorted jumpers, rugs etc for them.

Good for you and your mum. I do some knitting for underprivileged kids too. One of our craft stores here has a program where you buy the yarn and they give you a pattern for hats, mitts, scarves, sweaters, etc. You knit the item then take it back to them. They refund the amount of the yarn and donate it, so I'm really just giving my time. I think it's a great idea!

i love finding deals on anything. joann fabrics was going out of business here and i went like every other day waiting to get the best deals on every thing i bought. i ended up spending about 50 dollars on about 300 dollars worth of things. i have enough beads to make a tun of jewerely by the way thats what i craft.

I'd love to see some of your beadwork. I also do some beaded jewellery, but mostly just for fun. You got a great deal and I have bins of beads I'll probably never use as I do the same thing.

Hi! Congratulations! I'm always happy when I find a craft project or materials for a project that come together nicely! I love when that happens! :-)

My problem is I never find them at the same time, so I kind of have to match them up later. I do love a bargain though! What kind of crafts do you do?

I know what you mean, It is so wonderful to get a bargain on craft supplies. They can be so expensive. I got some great yarn at the dollar store for $1.

Isn't that awesome? The yarn I got usually sells for over $4 per ball in stores. What do you make with yarn?
