Which store to choose depends on what craft the supplies are needed for. Michaels provides cheap baking craft options in addition to artist supplies, woodwork, jewelry making supplies, and scrapbooking supplies. Jo-ann Fabric and Craft Store has a wide selection of sewing, fabric and yarn projects. Hobby Lobby is similar to Michaels, but one main difference is that Hobby Lobby has more coupons and they are easily accessible. Once on the main page of the Hobby Lobby website, they can be found by clicking Weekly Offers at the top.
In addition to those three stores, cheap crafts are also available online at websites like Amazon, Etsy and eBay. There are also a number of indie craft stores that are specific to a particular city or state where craft supplies are available. For example, there are nine indie craft stores in Chicago, Illinois and five in San Francisco, California, as of 2015, according to Autostraddle. Though they may have a smaller selection, these stores may carry unique products larger chain stores do not stock.Learn more about Crafting
