    I live in a fairly large town in Southern California (100,000+) and have only a very large Joann. Our Walmart just got fabric back into the store, but is limited, but better than nothing. Just heard the other day, while shopping at Joann, that Hobby Lobby was opening in my town....I have never been in one, or shopped in one. Can you tell me what to expect....

    They have more crafts than fabric but they usually have a nice selection...I truly love hobby lobby because they do a 40% off cupon every other week on one item I have used it to buy all kinds of large items....

    I love Hobby Lobby! But, as said before, they don't have as much fabric as Joann's. They have really great decorator items and craft items, though. Even my husband likes to go-can't say the same for Joann's. And the coupon is terrific!!

    My hubby loves to go to HL! He won't go to a JoAnn's though.

    Hobby Lobby is great for "all around" home decor shopping. Plus, depending on the size of the store they have a great needlecraft and fabric section.

    OMG!!!! I have been to Hobby Lobby in Colorado and Florida. Love Hobby Lobby, not so much for fabric, as they are ok, not really Quilt shop quality, but their crafts and decorations are fabulous!!! They are kept so much neater and tidier than Michaels or Joanns. I live in No County San Diego....where are you exactly??

    I am expecting this to be a fairly large store as they are taking over a good size Mervyns empty store. I feel very blessed that I will now have choices, Walmart, Michaels, Joann and now Hobby Lobby..... Competion is always a good thing, the Joann in my city is the second largest in the nation, and has not always been managed or run well.

    I buy from both but I think that HL has better quality in their own brand for around 3.99-4.99 that is with their 30% off every day on fabrics. With all the other stuff you could spend quite a bit there
