I learned to sew early this year and found I was lacking in useful notions and supplies. I visited the Joann superstore in Edina and I was in heaven. The store is really large and is laid out according to craft categories. My favorite section is the sewing area which is also their largest section. They carry a wide assortment of notions, fabrics, patterns and other supplies. I can easily spend hours perusing their aisles of goodies. My favorite part of Joann's is their great prices! Not only do they have good deals but they send out 40% coupons if you sign up for their circular. You can receive coupons by email and regular mail. On average I have 2 to 3 of these coupons in my purse per week! With a nicely staffed store you will always find a sales associate for any questions or product information. They have a large parking lot and great store hours. I highly recommend it to all crafter's!
On a side note, I found out they offer different level classes for a variety of crafts such as sewing, knitting, quilting, etc. The prices seem high to me considering I took classes at night at my local high school community program for half the cost.
