Closeout Wood Craft Supplies on Sale

Craft-Wood has some really good wood crafts for you to make into your awesome projects. They have a category for their closeout wood craft supplies that are on sale. These items usually come in lots that you can purchase and incorporate into several different wood craft projects.

Free Shipping

Hobby Lobby is offering free shipping on orders over $39. This special offer is available through midnight central time Saturday, January 29th.

As we all know, shipping costs can be excruciatingly high, so I think this is a great deal, especially when you're ordering a lot of those heavy craft supplies from Hobby Lobby!

Fabric on Sale

This n That Fabrics is having a huge sale on their quilting fabric. I've purchased from them, and I've been very pleased with the fabric they've sent.

You can save 10 to 40%, and sometimes even more, on some of the fabric they have on sale. They're trying to get rid of last year's fabric to make room for this year's latest, so stock up now! After all, a lot of this fabric on sale may be oldies, but they're definitely goodies! I think most fabric is timeless anyway, especially if you're in to making prim or country type of projects. I just can't stay away from their shop...Help! I'm becoming a fabric addict, but at least I can get some of it at huge savings through This n That Fabrics!
