hello fellow crafters,
just wanted to pass along some information. i recently learned that jo-ann's corporate instructs their employees to throw away many items that they are overstocked with as well as fabric/ribbon ends. as crafters, we all know the value using every little scrap.
i encourage you all to contact jo-ann's corporate via the "contact us" link on their website and request a revision of their policy. instead of filling landfills with these items they can order less to start with, sell excess at a reduced (clearance) price, or donate to a thrift store or other organization.
