    I had lunch today with a woman who was talking about the Hobby Lobby store that will be opening in mid August. She goes to one in OK when she visits a sister and is excited that we will have one here. I have never heard of a Hobby Lobby store. It sounds a little like a JoAnns from her description. Does anyone frequent a Hobby Lobby store?

    We have one here. They carry a lot of stuff for all types of hobbies not just sewing. They do have one section that is fabric and sewing notions. I have looked but not bought any fabric there. Somethings were higher priced than Jo ann's The biggest part of their store is home decorations which at regular price is over priced but they have a sale on that stuff every other week, at least. Ours is a good sized store don't know if they are all that way or not. Fun to look at their stuff.

    The Hobby Lobby's around here occupy the old WalMart store buildings - that is how big they are! They do have a very nice fabric department - look for the sales. But their biggest selection is their crafts - everything imaginable. Lots of home dec. items though - but huge selections of seasonal home dec. items - Christmas, Easter, etc. They are not open on Sunday's - religous reasons. Look for their coupons in the Sunday papers - somethings are always on sale.

    Thanks for the info - I am looking forward to the opening of this store. And, the nice part - it is only a few blocks form the new JoAnns that opened in the mall!

    I loved living near a Hobby Lobby. I wasn't much into sewing at the time, but I did enjoy looking through the fabric section. I used to crochet a lot and their selection of yarn and dollmaking supplies was really great. They do have a lot of really great sales.

    Make sure you look at their website before going. They often have a 25% off or 40% off coupon that you can print. :thumbup:

    Print a copy for everyone who's going with you, as it's limited to one per person ... then have each person check out separately. ;)

    I too love Hobby Lobby, and so do my girls. I find thier prices better than Michaels for craft items. While I normally buy my fabric from quilt shops I buy many notions here and they carry Warm & White/Natural battings. It's a very fun store to browse. Enjoy.

    you can also print off a coupon for 40% off a single item almost every week. Some weeks its for a specific item....like unfinished wood frames or something but most of the time its for anything.

    I love walking around Hobby Lobby. My sis can get any yarn she wants there. They have some fabric and notions. Some of it is so cute. And you can find any craft item you might want.

    I like Hobby Lobby a lot - you just have to remember to not go on a Sunday and always know what is or isn't on sale. They don't have scanners and enter everything in by hand and if the cashier doesn't know it's on sale, you could miss out on the savings... I have been lucky though and not have had a cashier miss out on a sale but I have heard others who have been less fortunate.

    I do like my Hobby Lobby a lot :)

    Waaayyyy WAAAAYYYYY better than JoAnn's IMHO :) They started in OK, corporate HQ in Oklahoma City. They're Christian owned and their employees are treated very well. They start at $10 an hour. Last Christmas, for a bonus, all employees received $100 for every year they've worked there. I know several who've been happily employed by Hobby Lobby for many years.

    I've found their home decor fabrics selection to be fabulous. They carry Debbie Mumm Fabrics and I enjoy those. Their home decor section is wonderful and they very often have 50% off all wall decor or lamps, for example. I can always find things I love for my home. It truly is one of my favorite stores and I think you'll enjoy having one in your town :)

    they dont have as BIG of a fabric selection as Joann but they have current styles! and the prints are to die for!!!
    they also have weekly coupons that they email to you and you print. be sure to sign up for these on the website.

    Some time you can get a coupon of the web for 40% one item only if it is not on sale. That is when I buy a big item. Like the selfhearling mat.

    Did I mention most of the Hobby Lobby's I've visited carry the Minky Chenille? There's a large Hobby Lobby warehouse (huge discounts) in Oklahoma City that I plan to visit next week while visiting my daughter and son in-law and am soooo hoping they have some there :)

    You cannot keep me out of ours! They are closed on Sundays so make sure you do your shopping on all of the other days of the week.

    Hobby Lobby is a store that my nonsewing friend and I like to shop together. She crochets and I quilt and knit. They have a really great yarn called "Love That Yarn", I think that is the name. Anyway, it is a good price. Bought a nice velvet there for Christmas projects, the kind you can emboss. Bought stuff for my wedding there, good sale. Enjoy.

    Love Hobby Lobby. I didn't know about the employees though. I know everyone seems friendly and happy when I go in . Like Publix they obviously treat their employees well.Wonder when other businesses will get the idea They are closed on Sunday which makes it great for the employees but a little hard on me sometimes. I find that their regular prices are cheaper than Joann's . Ours is moving. I sure hope they don't change the store when they move.
