I looked but didn't see anything. It said the width, the brand, the composition, etc.  No length.  Some of the packages were already opened as people bought yardage.  I might have to get a partial one, but it's still at a good price.

Let us know how many yards you get!  I'm sure there'll still be some left today.

OK.  I got a bolt of 15 yards for $116.85; regular price was $194.85.  It's Hobbs Heirloom Batting, 80/20, a blend I like a lot for my quilts.  The good side:  it's so nice to be able to cut to fit and not have large pieces left over.  The bad side:  the roll takes up a lot of room!

Wrap a quilt around it and stand it in a corner of a room somewhere.  Does not have to be in your sewing room.

A very good idea!

JoAnns measures it even if it’s sealed up!

Surprisingly, they didn't measure! But when I checked out and the clerk scanned the barcode, she told me the price was $10.10.  I asked her was that correct?  And she said yes, it was $12.99 originally and was on sale for 40% off, $7.79.  I said but it is 15 yards.  So she scanned again and the true price came up.  She just said-- and I am not kidding--Oops!  Darned conscience.

Yes, I would have done the same thing. They have bills to pat like we do!

And was this clerk a juvenile, someone under the age of twenty-one?

Any mature clerk (someone who can do math in her head) would have realized that $10.10 was an unrealistic price for a bolt of batting.

Yes, I'd say under 21.  Giving her the benefit of the doubt, she may not have known what this roll of batting was (they sell big rolls of fleece meant for blankets every day, I'd think), and didn't know it was a group of 15 packaged *items* that could be priced individually.  I just about laughed when she said "Oops"!
