99 cent Yarn at Michaels

By Rachel Choi – 10 Comments

This weekend I paid a trip to Michaels not only because I had two 40% off coupons, but because I read a rumor that there was 99 cent skeins of yarn. I thought to myself, even if there weren’t any for 99 cents, then at least I can still us my coupons and buy something. But I was so excited when I walked to the yarn department! There it was…racks of 99 cent yarn!!! I got some wool, simply soft, satin sport, cashmere, and some novelty yarn! Each at just 99 cents a skein!!! I spent about $20…so you can do the math on how many skeins of yarn I got.

I think I would have got more, but some other crocheter probably beat me to those baskets that were empty. Anyway, the moral of the story is you should go to a Michaels near you (if there is one) and see if they have 99 cent yarn too!

Here is a link to a 40% one regular priced item coupon that’s good for this week (May 10 – 16, 2009): Michaels Coupon

    Thanks for post about 99 cent yarn at Michaels! I ran over there yesterday and got five skiens since they were almost out. Love your website!

    Woohoo! Glad you got there before they were all gone 🙂

    I was recently at my local Michael’s, and a woman working there surprised me by telling me that they were planning to get rid of the knitting/crochet section. I don’t know if it’s true, but I guess it’s not that surprising if it is. The yarn there had been really cheap there lately. Even the Caron One-Pounders were only $2.99. I guess there aren’t a lot of knitters or crocheters in my area.

    At least there’s a Joann’s nearby, too.

      aww 🙁

      but that is some really cheap yarn! $2.99 for a caron one-pounder is such a great deal. I hope you stocked up (if you don’t already have a massive stash).

    That’s too bad about Michaels, but really great for those who were able to get the .99 cent yarn.
    Wal-mart did that too when I worked for them back in 2006. I think that some stores still have a very tiny section but lots of stores are getting rid of those sections for some reason.

    Wow! do you know when it ends, or is it an everyday thing? My mom makes me buy my own yarn, and i don’t get allowance, so i’m always looking for deals on yarn!

      Hey Hannah, it’s over now. This was a while back in May 2009, when Michaels was cleaning out their stock. They do have sales occasionally through out the year.

    I was told that the Michael’s in zip code 54701 Eau Claire, WI will not be stocking
    Carron Yard anymore. I guess I would like to know why?

    I use Carron Yard all the time…for hats scarfs and baby times…
    I love the simply soft yard for many many projects and hate to see That Michael’s will not be stocking it…

    I need to know if anyone else was told this…or was it just my nearest store.??

    Thanks Judie

      Hi Judie!
      Sorry, I haven’t heard of anything. The Michaels near me just closed 🙁 Maybe you can ask some of the associates in the store or go on their website, I believe they have a contact form there.
