    We don't have a Hobby Lobby in our area, and I've only been in one once. At the time I wasn't quilting so I didn't look at the fabric.

    I'll be near a Hobby Lobby this weekend and was wondering what their fabric was like. Is it like JoAnn's? Do they have different fabric, or pretty much the same stuff?

    I have a $5.00 off on a $20 purchase coupon I would like to use if I go.

    Thanks.

    here is this week's add...50% off seasonal fabric...lots of good stuff there.

    Some fabric is great, others just so so...gotta do the feel test to find the good stuff.

    So much good crafty stuff there.

    It's not quilt store, but I think it's better than Joanns.

    We have very nice quality fabric at the Hobby Lobby here. Most is around $6.99 to $8.99 a yard and is most always 30% off. They also carry Kona cotton for $6.99 a yard. If you look at their calicos, you may even find some fabrics for $3.99 a yard. It is just as nice as LQS fabrics and holds up very well.

    I agree with the other's who said that it is better than Joanns fabrics. They do have some that feels awful, though.

    I love Hobby Lobby. If you find a fabric you want and they do not have the yardage you need in stock they will special order it for you. Or the one here do. Also, Hobby Lobby stores here are not open on Sunday. Happy shopping.

    Our Hobby Lobby doesn't have a wide selection of fabrics, but the quality is definitely superior to JoAnn. I often find unique colors there that I don't find elsewhere.

    I think you will like shopping at Hobby Lobby. They have some fabrics similar to JoAnn's, but they also have a lot that is different. As was suggested, feel the fabric. My HL and J's is a 30 mile drive for me and I can find a lot that I like.

    Their quality isn't as good as JoAnn's, but they have different suppliers, so you always find something you can't get at J/A's. Their fabric is also more expensive.

    They're not open on Sundays anywhere. It's one of their founding principles to allow their employees to have Sunday off as a day of worship or family time. Nearly all of the music they play is Christian (usually instrumental hymns) and they have a great Christian merchandise selection throughout their store (so Christian themed stamps, Christmas has lots of nativities, not just Santa and snowmen, Easter has lots of crosses, not just bunnies and eggs, VBS kits, Noah's ark inspired stuff, Christian themed wall art, etc).

    They normally have a coupon on the website that you can print out. You can use one a day. If you have a data enabled phone, you can also use your phone to show the coupon in the checkout line instead of having a paper copy.

    Hobby Lobby is my fave place to shop. The quality isn't quite as good as a real quilt shop, but it's close and so much better than Joann's. Their calicos are always 30% off and they do have 40% coupons online after two or three weeks. If you look good, you will also find a name brand or two. I've used their fabrics for years and have never been disappointed. My DD loves their seasonal home decor stuff; goes cheaper & cheaper after the holiday, if you're not picky.
