    Batiks in Hobby Lobby

    I was in a Hobby Lobby today and They are now carrying batiks at $12.99/yd. I think that is the going price in LQS. The selection is not too bad and the quality is good. With a 40% off coupon that is a good price. I like HL fabric but I wish they would change the variety more often.

    I noticed this too. I thought maybe I just hadn't noticed them before... I didn't have time to really look at them, but I will next time.

    I like Hobby Lobby too. The tend to carry older lines of fabric that disappear from LQS quickly. Their personal line which is Brother Sister Studio Designs is usually good quality. I agree that their inventory doesn't change up very often. You are right if you use a 40% off coupon the batiks are more affordable (just like that other fabric store in town!). The only real issue I have with them is that they will only take their own coupons and we only get 1 HL coupon every other week in our local newspaper.

    You can go to hobbylobby.com and print off their weekly coupon. You can print as many as you want but you can only use one per transaction.

    I have quit shopping at connecting threads since someone stole my credit card number from them. Anyone else have that happen since thousands were hacked.

    I think I'll have to go check this out. In humble opinion, I think Hobby Lobby's fabric is much nicer and a few dollars less than JoAnn's.

    I go on line and copy a coupon before I shop if I can't find my paper.

    I noticed our HL here has had it for about two weeks now. Yes, good quality fabric, but did not have time to check out the price.

    Unfortunately, credit card numbers can be stolen from just about anywhere these days...

    I do like Hobby Lobby's fabric , but it is more limited than "the other store" as far as selecion. I have found some bargains thoiugh and usually like their holiday cottons . Some of my favorite neutrals are from their stuff and I also like the Brother Sister Designs. Every once in a while I find really niceAlexander Henry or other big name fabric maufacturers that reasonablly priced too.

    If you have a smartphone, you can also download the Hobby Lobby app and there is ALWAYS a 40% off coupon, good any and every day of the week.

    [COLOR=#ff0000][/COLOI worked for hobby lobby for four years. I made no money the first year. R]love their fabrics. I will print off many copies of the coupons and pass them out to others. That's one way I pay it forward.

    Me too. Plus its handy to have the coupon ready for the stores that accept other stores coupons - just show them your coupons on your iphone. I love all the coupon apps! Now I feel the need to check out Hobby Lobby's batiks, even though I need to finish destashing the material I know I'll never use. Oh well - I know I'm not destashing my batiks!

    Sula Bug, for many of my 30 yrs. in CO, I begged for one in my area. I had to drive 80 miles to get to the nearest HL, which was where my son lived. If he hadn't lived there, I would never have driven that far for craft and fabric. So, good luck with wishing for one. I did e-mail their headqrts. but never got a response. When I would go over to Grand Jct. my son would drop me off and ask me how many hours before he should pick me up.

    If you have a smart phone you can download the HL and the JoAnn's app and all their coupons will be right there with you when you are shopping. The cashier will just scan the coupon from your phone and you can use it again on your next visits to the stores.

    We just got a HL but I still like the fabric at the quilt shop. HL fabric reminds me of Walmart and their prices seem high for the quality

    I'll have to check our Hobby Lobby. Last time I was there, they did not have batiks. I hope they do. I love batiks. Thanks for the heads up.
