Where can I buy Tulle to make tutus?

My daughter takes dance at the YMCA and every 3 sessions (twice a year) they have a recital just for fun for the kids. Most of the families (us included, I'm not talking people down!) in the class can't afford to buy an $$ outfit to wear for a 30 minute program but these kids were so excited over one of my daughter's tutus, I was going to buy the stuff to make everyone in the class matching tutus for the recitals but I don't know where the most economical place to buy it is.

Feel free to PM me or post here,

Thanks!

Also if anyone knows what I could make for the boys to make them feel special as well let me know! There are 2 boys in the class this session!

I get mine by the yard at Hobby Lobby or JoAnns, my Hobby Lobby is 40 or 50 cents cheaper than JoAnn's. Hobby Lobby also has spools of tulle, maybe 12" wide, I'm not sure about the length on each spool, so I don't know if that's a better deal than BTY or not.

I like the spools because you don't have to cut as much, and I bought mine at Joann with a coupon of course.

Joann's has spools of it in their cheap section on the end caps by the threads at our store. I have seen it in the wedding section at Hobby Lobby.

Hobby lobby has yardage for .99/yard. They also have rolls of tiller that is about 5 inches wide and I think 25 yards long for 3.99 I think. They also had shinier stuff that was 5 inches wide * I think * and 10 yards long for 4.99 I am pretty sure these were the prices last time I was there, which was about a week and a half ago. Rolls would be easier since toy only have to cut the length. I bought yardage and it was a pita!

This is where I get mine. It is good pricing if you are going to be ordering many rolls!
