I visit the craft store 3 to 4 times per month. I tend to prefer shopping at Hobby Lobby. I shop at Michaels also, but when I need anything I tend to go to Hobby Lobby first. It seems the store lay out is really easy to maneuver. I am on their mailing list also so I received the coupons. I tend not to frequent Joann's as much because we do not have a super store so their selections are limited. Do you have a preference or any store is okay?

I also like Hobby Lobby but I really like JoAnn's as they have such a big selection of what I like to use....for scrapping and stamping...they also run very good sales. Both stores are good as is Micheals....which is also high on my list.

Joann's does not have a good selection in my area. We don't have a super store. I love the sales also.

The closest craft stores are Michaels and AC Moore, so I go to them a lot. (Always with a coupon!) I buy yarn & jewelry-making supplies, and the selection is different at each one. Seems like I have to shop around to find what I want, which can be a little frustrating. The yarn supply at Joann's has dwindled down to one aisle. I wish we had a Hobby Lobby close by, because I've been to one, and I think the selection was great! You are lucky...

My favorite is Michaels. I try to go in there without my husband because he does not like the store. I wish we had a hobby lobby. I do shop in JoAnn's sometimes, but sometimes they do have higher prices. I love going once or twice a month. I vist the Michael's web site frequently, but you can not order any items on there. All they have are craft ideas.

I generally get what craft items I need at Walmart. I primarily use plastic canvas and yarn. Once in awhile I'll go to Michael's but can get lost in there for an hour just looking around. Michael's has such neat ideas on newer crafts. Have only been to Hobby Lobby once and it could be a real problem for me..lol I loved it. Bought all kinds of things I will probably never use. I'm better off to stay away from craft stores.

i am in canada and we dont have a lot of those stores. i like michaels but find that they are sort of expensive (though they have great sales!) i also get some of my crafting stuff at walmart but i guess my favourite place to get crafty stuffs is at my local dollar store. we have a chain called dollarama and they are good plus i have a local dollar store and they have great stuff too - especially for scrapbooking.

i love hobby lobby! i recently got married, and i loved the fact that every couple weeks or so all of the wedding stuff was half price! i also take advantage when picture frames go on sale half price because they make great gifts. another thing that i love about hobby lobby are their end-of-season clearance aisles. you can find a lot of stuff down those aisles that are labeled "spring" for instance, but you can use them year round. and sometimes that stuff is like 70% off! i like michaels too but the one here doesn't have as much stuff as hobby lobby, and their really good sales don't come around as often.
