    I LOVE Hobby Lobby! So much better than Michael's! And their fabric is just wonderful! They have some pretty good quilting stencils as well.

    Just a suggestion, the first time you go, plan to stay awhile!! I am planning a Hobby Lobby shopping day with my DD, I want to just go in and look at everything. Usually I just have time to run in and get what I want. They have so many great things there...oh and their after the holiday sales are great!! Don't miss out on them. Have fun and enjoy your new store.

    I have one that I use all the time, mine is cheaper than Michaels and yes they have a 40% coupon in my Sunday papers good for one week.

    If you love stencils to machine quilt or by hand, I just purchased a book that has 501 quilting motifs. The book is from the editors of Quiltmaker magazine.

    They have a lot of crafrting supplies, wood, beads, yarn, floral, and lots of home decor stuff. They have art supplies and offer framing. They carry a pretty nice fabric selection too. I sure wish we had one here. When I went back last month for a visit to family and friends in CO, I was in Hog Heaven to go to Grand Jct's new Hobby Lobby and I got quite a bit of flannel I was looking for. They honor religion and family and will never be open on a Sunday. I applaud them on this.

    Go to Hobby Lobby website and sign up for its newsletter. Each Sunday you will receive an email with the weekly specials and the weekly coupon. You can print the coupon and take it to the store. Note the 40% off coupon applies to non-sale items.

    P.S. JoAnn's will honor HobLob (as I call it) coupons.

    I agree about loving Hobby Lobby. 40% off coupon in most Sunday papers, good sales and good quality fabric.

    We have one near us and I love it. I was there just yesterday. They have fabrics and sewing things, but a whole lot more--stuff for every hobby under the sun. And even have some home deco items.

    Prepare yourself for a wonderful store. It has everything, so much more than any Michael's or Joann's. It has 40% off coupons in the newspaper and it is never open on Sundays. I love their fabrics and use the 40% coupon on books.

    The best thing is that they always have a coupon of some sort. Every now and then it is 40% off one non-sale item.

    This is way better than Hancock Fabrics 40% coupons as an example. Hancock's coupons are only good on certain things...which is usually not what I am looking for. HL coupon is good on any one thing that is not on sale.
    Our Hobby Lobby honors the 40% coupon on sale items, those priced less than 40%. They will raise the sales price to make it 40% off with the coupon.
    I purchased a Halloween panel for $2 yesterday and with the 40% coupon got the panel for free!

    I think it is a great seasonal home dec store, however I find they have limited inventory of items on the shelves. In the doll house area anyway......I have purchased a shelf, and I understand it is only temp. furniture. The mgr here is rude...........have fun........calla

    For those of you unfamiliar with Hobby Lobby:

    They are based in Oklahoma City. Owned by the Green family. They are the family that bailed out Oral Roberts University, located in Tulsa, OK. They do a lot of philanthropy work. Right now, they have a display of bibles and other religious artwork that they have acquired over the past 2-3 years. Very Christian family. They are expanding their presence in the states.

    Just FYI.

    I love Hobby Lobby! They have a 40% off coupon every other week available on line. Starting before Christmas it is every week...they also have lots of 50% off each week. If I see something I want and don't have a coupon, I just wait a week or so and it either goes on sale or I get a coupon. You never have to pay full price! I got a cutting mat last week for $40..it is huge!..saw it at Joann's for $79.95..at Hobby Lobby for $59.95 -40%. It is just about my favorite store and I can spend a fun couple of hours there every week. Magazines and books are never on sale so if I need nothing else, I buy a book for 40% off...Just love it and am glad it is closed on Sunday..everyone needs a day off. If I lived closer I would like to work there and I am very happily retired!

    I really like Hobby Lobby. For the most part, their fabric is a pretty good quality, although you do have to watch some. Those 40% off coupons are great. For some other craft items, they are a little more expensive. ENJOY!
    One thing that DOES annoy me about HL is that they still use price tags and not scanners on their registers. This can delay the check out process as the clerk has to KNOW everything that is on sale. Yes, they do have a "cheat sheet" available. Can't believe in this day and age of technology, that they don't use what is available.

    The ones I have been in don't have a huge selection of fabric but it's nice, they have coupons often. I used to do their greeting cards at a store in Illinois and sometimes people would think I was one of their employees and sound off. The most frequent complaint was that they had driven quite a ways on a Sunday and they were not open. It is frustrating to make a trip there and notice no cars...oops it's Sunday, but it is refreshing to see them stick to their principles and not yield to the complaints. They have tons of seasonal decorations and they go on sale early and keep getting marked down till they are gone. Some of their decorative items are a little high compared to a Marshalls but they have the sales on lots of things all the time. It's a really nice store.

    I've shopped at Hobby Lobby stores in Texas for many years...in several locations. They're great. They have every kind of hobby, craft, and art items you can imagine. Plus a lot of decor items for the home. Some of their fabric is very good quality. My favorite is to buy solid color Kona cotton with a 40% coupon, which is often available in the local newspaper. They consider 10 yards to be a single cut of fabric and 40% off that is a good deal. You'll enjoy shopping there.

    hobby lobby sadly is NOTHING like a Michaels. It is smaller, has more Made in China stuff than a Chinese market place and less crafting stuff. I speak from experience as a Lead Sales for Michaels and being in OK where HL is based out of! Do sign up at their website to get the weekly flier emailed to you so you can have the coupon. I copy/paste it to word and print off 10 every week. Then what I don't use, I share at the store, makes for great customer sales!

    was in Hobby Lobby yesterday for the 1st time in MONTHS and noticed that they had rearranged, enlarged and upgraded the quality of fabrics! so excited.

    and sadly, our Michaels is mostly kids foamy crafts and flowers and Hobby Lobby is 3 times larger and cleaner

    Love Hobby Lobby! You can sign up at their website and get a coupon in your email for 40% off almost every week.
