    I've heard so many people say what good buys they've found at Hobby Lobby...I found out today that one is taking over an empty former Pathmark store less than 2 miles from me...we have no stores for quilting things in town...there is a fabric shop in the next town and now the Walmart (in the same shopping center where Hobby Lobby is going to be) has just recently added a VERY limited fabric dept....we also have a Michael's but it doesn't carry fabric...sooooooooooooo I cannot wait for Hobby Lobby to open... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: Naomi

    Lucky you !!! We don't have Hobby Lobby Or JoAnnes Or Wal Mart in the UK --- I wish we did -- I always head for those stores when I am lucky to come over to the US.

    There are 2 stores getting ready to open in So. Cal. The closest one to me will be about 90 miles away, so I may need to take a road trip once it is open.

    Where in NJ? I know one Pathmark plaza is a play place now but the other by me is still empty although I wouldn't consider this area "the boonies". Where will the Hobby Lobby be?

    Where are these new stores to be located? I live about 40 miles from LA and haven't heard about getting any Hobby Lobbys. I always look for them when on vacations in the middle west.

    There is a HL here where I live; a WM with no fabric, and a LQS that I can't afford. I shop at HL and found that the fabric is of good quality, most importantly, I can afford it. Their selection of theads is lacking but I can live with that. The women that work in the fabric dept are very nice. NOW, someone is going to say something about the quality, or lack or quality, all Ican say is that when my grandmother was making these quilts that I still have (and am 64 years old); she didn't have the luxury of "quality" fabrics, she used what had.

    Another note, IF I were going to enter a quilt in a show, or if there was someone really really special that I was making a quilt for, I would buy the best fabric that I could afford. OH WAIT, afford is the operative word......

    I like the variety HL offers. They frequently have designs I haven't seen anywhere else.

    Just went to Hobby Lobby 2 days ago and raided their clearance craft books! I got 5 $28 quilt books for $5 each!!! So exciting!
    I do the monthly secret pal swap, so that is a really great buy for me!

    You will love Hobby Lobby!!! It is my favorite store to go to. The fabrics are very nice and they have a nice selection of holiday and seasonal fabrics. And you can find something for most any craft or home decor, and usually on sale

    No need to get on a mailing list. HobbyLobby.com has a 40% coupon every other week, good for 1 item or a single cut of fabric, be it 1 yard or 100 yards. You can print multiple coupons but can use only 1 per visit.

    You can sign up for their weekly sale flyer and don't forget to print your coupon that comes out every Sunday. I use mines faithfully.

    Hobby Lobby is awesome. I just wish they would build one closer to me! There are two "near" one is at least 45 minutes and the other an hour -- most of the craft stores are that far away. Wish Hobby Lobby would be the one to build one closer to me!

    If you are thinking HL is like a fabric store you are in for a let down. They mainly sell Chinese import stuff like a pier one import store, with little bit of party stuff, some art supplies and craft things. Not at all like they used to be..ALL craft/art stuff!
    Their fabric is just a bit better than WM, about like Joanns/Hancocks. Spendy and you have to really watch the quality!

    Oh no. Most of my experience with HL was 7 years ago in Ohio. When we were in the Chicago area 3 years ago I thought the store manager was incompetent because the yarn, batting and fabric departments had been greatly downsized. I e-mailed their headquarters and their response was that they could no longer do business as they had previously. None the less, I was able to purchase some very nice quality children's fabrics for my charity quilts. I'm so sorry to hear that they are now on par with Walmart and Joanne's.

    I love Hobby Lobby. Yes, check the quality, but I think the fabrics are much nicer than Wal Mart. Another good thing - if they are short on a fabric you like in the store, you can go to their web and order it because you already know what the fabric is like. I am another one who cannot afford $10-$15 a yard fabric all the time. So I fill in with what I can afford. Our Hobby Lobby has quilting cottons for $6.99, but they are ALWAYS 30% off, which makes them affordable.
