I have a love hate relationship with Joannes. When I shop there, I can't help but feel like I've been shipwrecked onto an island inhabited by acrylic yarn harpies. I do order a lot of fabric and notions online, but I'm cheap, and you can't beat $2.99 yards of plain white cotton that's a mile from my house with no shipping charge. So anyway, I don't really think of their stores as anything but the Wallmart of crafting. If you need basics, great, if you need something fancy special, move on. So I can't say I was surprized when my friend fowarded me this earlier this morning. It's a quick read article, check it out and tell me what you think. Agree? Disagree? Not at all surprised? Annoyed?
My favorite quote is "Since when did JoAnn Fabrics become the arbiter of MY morals? I'll go to church for that . . . and when I want styrofoam chickens I'll go to JoAnn's."
