Maybe it just wasn't a great day for Hobby Lobby when I visited, but I did not like it. The first time I went, it was Sunday -- a day when Hobby Lobby is closed. I think that is weird -- isn't Sunday when lots of us want to work on our hobbies? When I came back during the week, they did have the item I was looking for, but I had to ask three cranky sales people before I got directions to the right aisle. The merchandise seemed dusty, and there were lots of empty spaces on the shelves, as if they do not restock often enough. Michaels seems to be a similar store. I think I would stick with Michaels if I were looking for hobby and crafts items.
