The only local places near me that sell thread is Hancock Fabrics and a small spool is about 5.24 before tax. (!!!) So unless they have a sale or I get coupons, my stock of thead is growing S.L.O.W.L.Y.
Are there any paces online that may be a little cheaper or have sales more often? or is local the better way to go?

When I'm in need of a few colors (or just adding to my collection ;-) I sometimes check the selection at my local quilt shop first (noting the specific color #) and then order it online. I'm not a fan of Joann's for fabric quality, but I agree Angela, Joann's has good prices online for other supplies. I'll wait for free shipping, specific thread sales (Sulky and Gutermann come up often), or sale on entire purchase. Get on their mailing list!
If you need a good serger thread source, let me know!

Yeah, I've searched for other online sources in the past, but came up empty. Joann's for embroidery thread has been my best bet so far for price and quality brands.
Also--I've found Fabric.com to be a great online source (and their colors on my computer screen seem pretty true to life vs. other sites). They have Madeira thread on sale through the weekend. And as always, free shipping on all orders over $35.
If anyone else has a good source for embroidery thread, I'd love to check 'em out!
