Just curious -- I've never heard of AC More. We must not have them here. Is it a craft store like Hobby Lobby and Michael's, or is it more of a fabric store like Joann's?

They both carry mostly the same but depending on the size of the store and location (demand for products) one may carry more than the other.

Michaels does not sell the course books. You get them free when you start the courses.

Other than that they should have most of the same products you would use in the classes, but each different chain is not required to carry all the exact same things. In fact you will find some things that are exclusively at one store. Just like there are specific Wilton products that are only carried at Walmart and Target.

That's how it is with Hobby Lobby here. They have more than twice the space devoted to cake and candy making than Michaels has.

Joanns here isn't just fabric anymore...they've opened a supercenter that feels as big as a grocery store and they have a ton of things I want in there icon_biggrin.gif

Yeah, I have a REALLY dangerous corner near me!!! I don't mean there are traffic accidents . . . it's the strip mall where the Wilton store is, and now a Joann's Superstore just opened in the same spot. I swear, the car just automatically wants to turn in there when I'm on that street!! icon_lol.gif

You can always shop the Wilton online store for all of their stuff.
