I want to make some Egg-shaped potholders for Easter, and I'm out of Insulbrite. (In case you don't know, that's a batting that is insulated and resists heat. Great for oven mitts and potholders!) I can't find it around here so I ordered it on line. But I did it in a way that saves me money. If you haven't signed up for eBates, you should. It's free, trustworthy (I've been using it for years) and it's a way to get money for buying things you'd buy anyway.
You go to the site and do a search. They do have Joanne Fabrics, and I use that a lot. (Especially with 40% off coupons!) But today I also wanted to use my Paypal account instead of my bank account to pay. So far as I've seen, Joanne's doesn't take Paypal.
I used Fabric.com, another reliable source. If you spent $35, you got free shipping. I need some bulk yarn for the fall quilt I'm making and some spring-y fabric for a new blouse. I made it to $36. I will get 4% back on that, which will go into my Paypal account. (I think the money goes in quarterly, although I'm not sure about that.)
So, things I need, free shipping and money back. And no driving an hour to a fabric/yarn store! Yeah, works for me.
