On the corner of Sunshine and Freemont is a store called FM it looks like a dump but once you go in you'll have a really hard time leaving. there is everything there and it's cheap. A real dream store........try it you'll love it

I totally agree about the FM store - it ROCKS! I prefer Hobby Lobby to Hancock's or Joanne's because they tend to have both better everyday prices and bigger sales for the most part. They've also got a lot bigger supply on types of crafts/arts, rather than just what's popular at the moment.

I live by the FM store & never have been.  Drool ladies, I live by all the crafting stores, lol.  I love it.  My Mom went to the FM store the other day & bought me the most beautiful fabric.  I really need to go.

I love Hancock's, especially at night.  The night staff are just sweeties.  JoAnn's is one of my haunts but I hardly buy fabric there.  Hobby Lobby has been getting some cute things in but it's so limited.  I blow insane amount of money in that store.  I stick with Michael's because there is no fabric. Smiley 

Don't forget WalMart. All of them, except South Campbell, are still carrying fabric.  Some of it is at JoAnn's for one half cheaper.

I wish there were crafting get together here.  I would be the first in line.  Either everyone is hiding or I am missing something.

Well, we sometimes do workdays at our farm where folks can bring whatever projects they're working on/want to learn about/etc. We don't have any scheduled at the moment due to impending graduation (one more week - yaaaay!!!!!) but will probably schedule some after that. They'll probably show up on our website at www.mistymanormercers.com. I'll try to keep folks posted here, as well. Would that help?

That does help.  You have a nice website. I found another store yesterday that has the most beautiful beads.  It's the Bead Gallery on Glenstone across the street from Subway.  The owner is a real sweetheart.  The beads were priced great.
