Plastic canvas mesh?!

Post by Crabby in NJ » Thu Nov 28, 2019 2:41 pm

Sooo, apparently michaels stopped carrying the pieces of Darice plastic mesh! I’ve gone to the few that are close to me, looked in the dollar tree as well and no luck. The only way is online and it’s sooo expensive! 6$ and up for 1 sheet shipped when the sheet only costs .69? I can’t afford that rn with the a few things that have gone on in life....so I was hoping someone had a spare sheet or two they could mail me? Worth a shot to ask, if not no big deal. I can send unpopped corn in return? I have way too much but other than that I can offer a couple bucks to cover the postage. (I know it won’t cost 8.95 like these darn online thieves lol) oh and I live in NJ (jersey shore area) in case anyone is close. Thanks. Happy Turkey day to all!

Hi!
I found a set of 12 pieces for $10.24 on Amazon. It comes out to appx. $0.85/sheet. I know that's slightly more expensive than in stores but the shipping is free with a Prime membership, or if you don't have a membership, you can spend $25 in qualifying stuff to get the free shipping.
I got my mesh at AC Moore. Did you hear all 145 shops will be closing?? I heard they are going to start their liquidation sales sometime next week. I'm going to have to stock up on my mesh!

You may have smaller sewing shops that are local to you, too!

I was pretty sure the two by me closed awhile ago, I know one did for sure but I’ll double check. Thanks for the info! I’ll see if anyone has a prime membership where I work if all else fails. :crabbigsmile:

Some of the AC Moores are becoming Michaels. We just had that happen with Pat Catans, and now there are two Michaels not even ten minutes apart.

We stopped in an A C Moore yesterday and they were low on their inventory of mesh. It did appear at one time to have a pretty good selection of colors. They wanted $0.79 a sheet.

Hobby Lobby also carries it too. They also have a good selection of colors. They also have a great selection of plastic plants.

Our Joanne's doesn't carry it in their store but sell it online. The two Michael's we visited no longer carry it in their store either. In mid-late summer they had it on sale. I'm guessing since they were discontinuing it.

If you do order online like from Amazon read the reviews. I saw some people say the description was for 10-12 pieces. The only received one sheet for like $10!

With all of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales you may be able to find some decent online deals. Look for deals like a percentage off or free shipping with a certain amount purchased.

Our Walmart still sells it as well! You can also order online with free shipping to your store, or what we do is order enough dry groceries to get it to their $35 minimum and get it all sent to the house for free. It's stuff we would be buying anyway so it's not impulse buys.

Sorry I just saw this now. My neighbor had some for sale on the swap and shop, I bought one piece from her but she had more. If you haven't found any yet, I could see if she still has some and could pop it in the mail for you.

I have gotten my packs at Walmart, like 5-6 sheets for about $5. Sometimes they have it and sometimes it’s out, and it’s only the clearish color. But, it’s easy to grab from there! GL!!
