    Ripstop going on sale @ Joann's

    Just thought I would give a heads up on an upcoming sale @ Joann's. I was picking up some webbing for one of the tarps I'm building out and asked how often the utility fabric goes on sale. The very nice lady looked it up & mentioned it will $4.79/yd. starting 3/10/13. I'm sure there are probably better deals out there somewhere but being the n00b I am thought I would pass this along. $4.79/yd sure beats the regular $7.99/yd.

    Oh, btw... This was the Joann's in McKinney, TX. You may want to check in your area.

    Happy hangin'!

    Definitely a reasonable deal, especially if you aren't into buying online. Just be aware that it is usually the heavier 1.9oz/sq yd stuff if you are an aspiring gram weenie.

    Never buy at "regular price" from Joann's without a 40%-50% off coupon. They're almost always available.

    The only Joannes in my area only stocks a super heavy weight coated rip stop.

    Just trying to resist using them myself - do I *really* need more fabric right now?

    Just the question I am asking myself.... I just made a double layer, a single layer & two hex tarps out of $1/yd. nylon from Wallyworld. I know they would not would not meet the weight requirements of many here. However, they are my introduction not only to DYI gear but also hangin' as well. I'm sure the last thing I "need" to be doing is going to buy more fabric to make more... You folks were not kidding though... This is quickly becoming an obsession/addiction.
