I will have to check out those brands for cottons. I am near the Hobby Lobby maybe once a month, if that. Coupons are great!! My husband laughs because we walk into a store and I pull out my phone for coupons. Going to save where I can. I'm in thrift stores a lot and now I'm looking. Got a nice set of hooks the other day in a cute handmade roll up case. They are all wicked tiny so I don't know if I will ever use them but fun to have. I love the look of thread and yarn. I have a few mason jars that are full of balls of tatting thread. Will probably never use them but awesome decoration.
