JoAnn Stores VS JoAnn Internet

Today I had a surprise . . . not neccesarily a good one. We had driven over to Albany (GA) to let me do a bit of craft/yarn store & book store cruising~ And it was a good time to return some horrible gritty blue, supposedly poly-filling that I had ordered from JoAnn's via the internet.

Per the store manager . . . . . . they could not take it back because they are not affiliated with JoAnn's on-line.


After picking my jaw up from the floor, I told the lady at the register to use it, give it away, or throw it in the trash and left.

Just thought I'd tell y'all~

Finally, crochet makes National News!
