As part of my on-going efforts to interest my granddaughters in sewing and fabrics, on our shopping trip Saturday morning, Emma and I went to JoAnn's to select fabrics to make pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer as part of the FNSI project for April.
After explaining the parameters (fabric must be soft and the prints need to be something children would like), Emma did a great job picking out fabrics... I gave her options on the border fabrics and she made wonderful choices!
(Gutterman thread was 40% off so I picked up a couple of spools)
After seeing my LAQ using these the other day, I picked up a pair of thread snippers as well!
While we were having our fabrics cut and Emma was playing with her purple Peeps bunny, a lady started talking to us. We had a pleasant chat and then.... the lady asked if I had a JoAnn's coupon. I didn't... had left them on the kitchen table that morning. The lady then pulled out her coupons and offered me the one for "a friend," asking, with a smile, if I would like to be her friend.
The 25% off included everything... regular priced items as well as sale and clearance items!
Afterward, Emma and I talked about "luck" and "being nice to people." Yes... it was a very good day!
