    They have AWESOME Christmas stuff, Aisles of it.....I spend so much time looking at it!
    And the 40 percent off coupons are AWESOME!

    Use fabric from them--it is just fine and usually cheaper than JoAnn's. Be sure to sign up for their weekly sales add on line--hobbylobby.com. You get an e-mail usually on Sunday (when they are closed) that has a 40% off coupon for the week. I copy it off for extra copies as you can use one a day. Does stretch the budget.

    You are a lucky gal..... Hobby Lobby has LOTS of items for you to browse through. Yes, they do have a nice fabric department along with crafts, picture framing, holiday items, artistic materials, flowers, and home decorations, plus other depts. You will love that store.

    I used to go to Hobby Lobby often, they have downsized their fabic dept here in Hburg and put more silk flowers, how stupid. They have 40% coupons every other week in our local paper. Go to their web site and register and you can print out the weekly coupons and go each day if there is somethings you need.

    Yes, We have one about 30 miles west. It is similar to Michaels but it has fabric. It also has some furniture as Hancocks does. I prefer it to Michaels because of the fabric.

    Hobby Lobby is GREAT! We have JoAnns, but I prefer HL. Wish we had one here. "Ours" is 32 miles.

    I love Hobby Lobby. I think their fabric is a much better quality than Joann's. If I am not buying from my LQS, then I am buying at Hobby lobby. Usually their cotton prints are on sale each week for 30%. Mine has a whole aisle of what I would call "Blenders". Small prints in almost every color. Notions are not their strong point. Some books, which are nice if you use the 40% off coupon.

    I love shopping their. They play Christian base music. It is not boring stuff. I catch myself humming and then realize, Hey I just heard that song in church.

    Their Christmas stuff is out of this world. Haven't been in a few weeks, but heard they already have all the Christmas stuff out.

    You are going to love it. :-D

    I love Hobby Lobby. I had never heard of it before moving to NM. It has all kinds of holiday decorations as well as decorating for every day. But lots of stuff for all kinds of crafts. I love the variety of yarn they have. Which I have purchased alot. I have purchased fabric there as well. Ours does not have a hugh variety, but usually has something I "NEED" :) You'll love the store.

    I love the quilting fabric from Hobby Lobby! They are always 30% off all the time and I find the quality pretty good. Ours here is SC carries some kaufman and Kona all at 30% off. Also make sure to check out their quilting books I have gotten some really good books for just $5.00. I prefer HB over the Hancocks in our town.

    Love Hobby Lobby - fabulous store. Before the airlines started charging for extra bags, I always took an extra suitcase (large) to Denver to carry home the goodies. Now I pack and ship. Also love the fact that they consider Sunday a day of rest. You are going to love Hobby Lobby - the store, the selection and the employees. Have fun!

    Yes I have one near me about 20 miles as the crow flies. They carry a little of everything for all kinds of crafters. They also have weekly specials and if you join their email they will send you a 40% off coupon each week that you can use either online or at the store. Lucky you I find them better than Michael's or JoAnns.

    Hobby Lobby is owned by the Green family who also own Mardel's Christian bookstores. They sincerely are an exceptional business model.

    Hobby Lobby originated here in OKC many years ago. You might compare it to a Joann's but it is much superior. They have always carried a full line of arts and crafts, framing, seasonal, and fabrics with a pretty good line of notions and I believe they still offer some classes (in the arts line), lots of wood items to craft with, home decor. Give them a try. For years that was all we had to shop . Also, I forgot, great floral department, too. I started shopping there in the early 70's and also as far as the home decor, we had a choice of Pier One to compare with it back then.

    I love Hobby Lobby. They have all kinds of crafts. I am really into card making, too. They have an excellent area there. I happened to look at the fabrics and saw quite a few prints that I loved. They are grouped so that you can pick out 3-4 together. I'm not good at putting fabrics together so I really liked this. They also have lots of quilt notions. JoAnn has a lot more coupons; but, if you sign up for HL e-mail list, they send you, by e-mail, a 40% off coupon almost every week.

    I have 2 Hobby Lobbies each about an hour away in different directions. When we go to the "big" city I try to visit.One thing I have found is their floral department is great. A little pricey but I wait for the 50 percent off days on florals. I have made memorial arrangements for my parents graves that look as good after 6 months in the weather as when I put them out. Lots of cheaper silk flowers fade within a couple of months. One bouquet I redid and put on my brother's grave and a year later still looks brand new.

    Thought it was interesting how they handle things differently from store to store. The LH here does not allow us to use any coupons from other stores such as Jo Ann's and Michaels. I was telling them that other HL do take outside coupons and all thry would say was "they aren't suppose to" I Have noticed that HL is not putting out the 40% off any item coupons as often as they used to. I haven't yet asked why. This week it was just a coupon for 30% off Krylon Rustoleum paint. It does have a lot of stuff though!

    Thanks for our input.

    You mentioned you love Debbie Mumm fabrics. She operates her business out of Spokane and I live on the outer edges of Spokane!

    Their everyday prices are much lower than Joann's.
