So at the end of January, Becky announced on her blog, that her products were going to be sold at Joann's, in-store and Online. I've checked and as of now, Joann's is stocked with PL stuff. Everything but the Kiwi Edition... And I really really want it.
Anyone know what's going on with Kiwi Edition?

I want this kit too. They have hit the stores already, but the stores in my area only seemed to get two in and they were gone before I could get to any of them. It almost seems like J's was unsure and ordered a small amount. I hope they reorder.

I don't have a Joann's nearby so I was stalking their website and it hadn't showed.

In the meantime, a friend found it at her Jo's and I was able to buy a half Kiwi kit from her. So I know it's been in stock at some Joann's.

You can go to their website and run your zip code to see if it's in stock at a store near you.

From the photos I think the Kiwi edition looks super cute, but alas it doesn't appear any of the few Joann's in my state even have the PL items in their stores. What a total let down. I think if a kit is going to be inclusive to one store then that store better stock the product well.

Yes, not sure why they make these exclusive kits so hard to find. I keep calling the Joann's by me after their truck comes. This last time the only kiwi item they got was the binder and it was damaged.

Each store that got the kit only got 2, from what I heard they are even sold out in the warehouse.

It is rumored that they wont get anymore at all, but I really doubt that part.

I seem to recall that when Hobby Lobby started carrying Project Life, they also only got 2 of each kit. Those were restocked and they've carried more since then. Maybe the same is the case with J.

I'm on two Project Life Facebook groups and people keep posting pictures that they got one at Joann's so they are out there. I haven't checked at mine yet because I don't want it but I guess people are snatching them up as soon as they come in!

I want the kit, too. Neither of the Jo's I have visited even have PL items.

So, I'm waiting for it to hit Jo's on-line.

Yeah, it wouldn't make a bit of sense to not restock something that is exclusive to that store. Particularly, if there are so many people that are inquiring over that kit.

I was lucky enough to get one of these at my joanns. It's really nice--just wish the core kits were smaller and a little cheaper. I'll never use all these cards!!

I was lucky to snag the last one on the shelf.
Split it with a friend. I may still split what I have...way too many cards!

I agree it is way to many of the same cards. I wouldn't mind the quantity if there were more different, I got it at 30% off, but then that Sunday it was on sale for 50% off and then I had a 20% off coupon, so I was able to do a price adjustment. I ended up paying 12.22 for the kit. Ive thought about selling half, but I never know how to divide it up, call me lazy I suppose.

My Joann's does not carry anything Project Life. No Kiwi anywhere near here. I keep trying to buy a whole or even partial kits, but I have not been successful. I am still looking for the Kiwi kit, but I do not think I will find it anytime soon.

I was able to get the last one at my local store last week, and lucky enough to get it on a great sale (50% off PL sale and 15% off total purchase). If they restock, I'll buy another one because it is super cute, but I'm selling the one I found. I figure someone else who has been waiting patiently for it to come out will probably enjoy it more than me!

If they are stocked, then they are sold out of Kiwi.

Mine was severely messed up. At least half of the designs either had rubbing off of a darker color onto the lighter cards or bleed through of the b side onto the a side. I contacted them and they will be sending me a new one in a few weeks since they are having some flown to them to address this issue and want to ensure they aren't suffering from the same problem as the first run. So, if you do stumble upon it, PLEASE check over your kit carefully. As of a few days ago, the rep at AC didn't know much about it, but now she is aware. I've seen people complaining on a PL FB group about it since it was released and it doesn't appear nearly as many people who've been affected are contacting them to address the problem. Amy over there is a pleasure to work with.
