Sewing Related Black Friday Sales!

So I know that since joining the sewing blog-o-sphere I have read many a great tale about the wonders of Black Friday fabric sales.  So I thought I would post a list of what is on sale, where, and when to help keep track of the deals.  I haven’t listed all of the sales, but focused on the things that are probably of most interest to the home sewer.  I haven’t listed things like sewing machines or furniture, but I have tried to get the fabric and craft items that could be useful for the holidays or that one might want to stock up on during the sale.  I will try to update as more sales are announced.

Fabric Mart will be having 25% off it’s ENTIRE website.  I am not exactly sure about the timing on this sale, but I am assuming it is Thursday through Monday.  That means today is a good day to go through and fill up the wishlist.

   ___________________________________________________________________________ is having a Gobble Gobble Gobble sale through Monday November 28.  In addition to free shipping over $35 (US only), you can save more with the following Coupon Codes:

*$0 – $74.99 = Pie20 = 20% Off
*$75 – $149.99 = Pie25 = 25% Off
*$150 & Up = Pie30 = 30% Off


Fashion Fabrics Club:

FFC is having an end of the year Clearance Event through December 5, so this could be a good time to snag some online fabric at low prices.

Mood Fabrics Online:

For those of us not lucky enough to live in New York, Mood now has a nice selection of online fabrics.  This week they are having a 20% off of all cottons sale.


Dreamtime Creations:

Dreamtime Creations will be having online rhinestone sales throughout the Black Friday Weekend.  They have various specials with coupon codes available.  They plan to add coupon throughout the weekend.  You can only use one coupon code per order, so you may have to make multiple orders in order to get all of the deals you want, though they will try to combine shipping.  They are also giving 10% off total purchase of regular items over $50 with the coupon code THANKS2011.  The sale is good Thursday November 24 through midnight central standard time on Monday November 28.


Sad to say, but the online sales totally dominate the sales offered by the brick and mortar stores.  Although, honestly, I don’t know how much participation I will have in any of these sales.  I don’t really plan to do much decorating, and I already have the fabric for my holiday gift sewing.  While the 60% off fabrics at Joanns are tempting, I haven’t seen much interesting fabric there lately.  And while I could possibly find some good stuff at Fabric Mart or the sale, I also know that the Saturday after Thanksgiving I have a very special shopping trip planned, so I am hesitant to go for any of these deals.  I suppose I will just take a peak at what these online sources have to offer and maybe have them as a backup plan if Saturday doesn’t turn out as I am hoping.
