What is your favorite craft store? Do you ever buy craft supplies online?

    It was hobby lobby for a long time and then I went to a Joann's. That visit ended my long Hobby Lobby crush. Haha. However, we don't have one here. I shop at michael's most frequently bc it is super close to my house.

    I live near Lehigh! Though I like the new AC Moores in Temple. So glad to have one back, seemed like they all shut down in the area for years!

    Quoting ZsMommy:

    I lived in the Lehigh Valley-shopped at the one in Whitehall (worked at the JoAnn in Whitehall)-I do miss they're acrylic paint sales when you could get 4 for $1 or $2

    Where are you at? I love local bead shops and am always trying to find them on our routes when we travel. I made dh go in one last week when he was away for classes. lol I have a list in my phone of all these places.

     My local bead shop, buy local!

    Michael's or Hobby Lobby if the bead shop doesn't have what I'm looking for. I went to Joann's for the first time the other day, wasn't impressed, they didn't have a very good jewelry making selection, only one aisle.

    I do shop online, Firemountain and Lima Beads are my favorites, I can buy in bulk with them.

     I'm in Otsego MI, the bead shop is in Kalamazoo on Westnege though, I love it because I can buy seeds. I also go to a couple in Omaha NE when I visit my parents and oldest son. One of the shops in Omaha has Miyuki seed beads at a great price!

    Yeah-I read they were closing some locations down. Is the one in Whitehall closed? (I left PA 4yrs ago)
