Finding Inexpensive Thread and Yarn

I have several suggestions on finding cheap yarn or thread. I like to have a lot of yarn and thread on hand for my different projects, but I do not like spending a lot of money on it.

Yarn and thread can be very expensive. I have found several ways though, to help me save money on yarn and thread.

One way to fined cheap yarn or thread is to watch for sales in newspaper adds. I often find yarn and thread this way.

Another way to find yarn or thread is to go to garage sales. I have never found yarn or thread at a garage sale, but my friend has.

My crochet teacher often buys yarn in big bulks. It is cheaper that way. I do not make a lot of things with yarn, so I have never bought it in big bulks. However, I do not suggest buying thread by the bulk. It is cheaper, but it was difficult to use. When I used it, it got tangled.

I have also ordered crochet thread online. I have been able to find some good deals on hard to find thread this way.

I never thought about looking in newspapers for adds. I should do that that. (Even though I don't need any more yarn!) I agree with you about yarn and thread on hand, but I don't like spending alot of money on it either. Thanks for linking to me again! I like buying the one pound skeins of yarn. Its so much cheaper that way than buying a bunch of smaller skeins. I should look online too before I go to the store. THanks for the tips.

I have a few inexpensive suggestions for yarn - maybe your mom can help you with these! First, check out craigslist if you have an active local group. Freecycle can be good, too, because people collect more yarn than they can use and then they give it away. But the best secret is this: Thrift Stores. But don't look for skeins of yarn - Look for high quality sweaters that can be unraveled and reused! You might be able to find a good sale and get this yard for only a few dollars.
