When Does Fabric Go On Sale?

Fabrics like home décor fabrics, fleece, and outdoor fabrics are on sale every day of the week.

Therefore, expect a 30% discount on fabrics the next time your shop at Hobby Lobby.

When Does Yarn Go On Sale?

My mom LOVES to crochet and make scarves for the entire family.

So much so that I have enough scarves to wear a different one each day of winter, or so it feels.

So when writing this article, I asked her where she buys her yarn, and she said, “Only when it’s on sale at Hobby Lobby”.

I then asked her how she knows when it’s on sale, and she said, “from following my friends at r/Crochet on Reddit“.

She said members always “drop the knowledge” on when yarn is about to go on sale and their insider tips save her 75%.

On a side-note, I still can’t believe my mom has the Reddit app on her iPhone, but it’s obviously saving her money, so more power to her.

Fabric is no longer always on sale and is now 40% off when it is. I discovered this on Monday 04/17/23 after having bought fabric on sale the previous Saturday. I returned to the store on Monday to get more, only to discover that it was not on sale. All the sale signs in that department were gone.


There are no coupons allowed or even made anymore.
