Bought five years of navy fabric for my Shanghai Disco Gakuko skirt and my Majora's Mask Anju skirt. And for under $20! I love you Joann's coupons. *u*

And now I have even more because I found out Joann's has a student discount program! Weeeeeeeeee~

Do you know anything about applying for the student discount program? I want to join but I don't know how.

I bought some elastic for my CC boots and a grey wig for my Sophie cosplay.

So far it's been pretty simple. I'm trying to remember what I entered in exactly but all that was really mandatory was the name, address email. You can enter your address and all that stuff, but you aren't required to. Then they get into the process of sending you a card which apparently takes two to three weeks apparently... They give you two coupons to use while you wait. When you get the card then I think you have to go through the process of proving you are a student enrolled in a program (I don't think it has to be a sewing/craft related program) in whatever school you're in and so on - though honestly it seems a little silly if they're already sending you the card. >.> I don't have the card yet, so I really can't tell you anything more than that. If you're willing to wait a bit, I can tell you about it when the card does come in. :3

They have a student discount program? Holy cow! Why didn't I know about this?? Is it only for high school and below or are college kids accepted? How do you join or do you just show a school ID card?

hgdshfgjsdf my language is all messed up apparently and editing I guess is... stalled for the moment? Whatever the case, it said address wasn't mandatory, but I don't see how they can send you an actual card if all you give is your name and email. Whatever the case, it didn't seem all too thorough to me, but I can give you more details when the card actually arrives and if there's any change from there.

I sure hope it's for college students, seeing as I am one. >.> The impression I get is that it's targeted mostly for college students anyways.

Whatever the case, I don't have all the details! Lookie here instead!

Provided a link just last post. :3

And silly me, you only to have a photo ID from the institution with the card they send. You just fill out the tiny information form online, they send it to you, and after that all you need is a school ID. Why do I always overcomplicated things? -w-

I bought a burgundy red wig for a Sora Naegino (Kaleido Star) cosplay that I plan to do some day.

You are a god! This will help me so freaking much. The knowledge of this should be something everyone knows on this site. We can all use every last discount we can get. Thank you for sharing this!
