Some of these designers also have patterns for sale on Etsy, Craftsy, and various other venues. We always support handmade when possible. Another smart tactic is to keep a small notepad with you or save the info via your smart phone so that you can record the pattern companies and numbers that you like and save that list for when the store has a sale. This way, you won't have to compete for a seat at the pattern books table; you can go straight to the files and grab the patterns you want, lol! Hancock Fabrics often has such sales, and Wal-Mart will honor and meet the sale price if you show the sale coupon. Looking at thrift stores often turns-up some bargain priced patterns, like the ones pictured above. Total spent: .75¢! Awesome for this week's Thrifty Thursday. These are older patterns, but still useful nowadays. Don't you just love a great bargain or sale? Prim Spring blessings.
