2005-09-02 12:16:50   I was pleasantly surprised to see what a wide variety of craft items they have. It's like a mini-Michael's in there. Prices are right on par too. I definitely recommend checking out the place. —JanelleAlvstadMattson


2005-11-02 19:18:17   I was not keen on their soap section. $9.50/lb glycerin soap is absurd—the CoOp has plain glycerin for melt-and-pour for about $3/lb. Mold selection was slim and unappealing. Jo-Ann's in Woodland is a better choice for soapers. Online, I like [WWW]http://www.soapcrafters.com/ for selection and quality. —JudithTruman

2006-05-25 15:42:51   Yes, theres not much there for you unless your hobby is strictly crafts, I think "The Crafts Hobby" would be a more appropriate name. —TheodoreSuryapurnama


2007-05-21 22:21:51   not much there for costume making (i.e.- no fabrics!). they do have ribbon though. Their yarn is also very colorful. i recommend Walmart in woodland for fabrics & yarn. Good but upper end yarn can be found at In Sheep's Clothing and Knitter's Playground. —Chibi


2007-05-21 22:27:35   This place is closing! Everything in the store is 25% off. They don't have much in terms of hobby stuff like I thought they did (I guess I was expecting some model planes and rockets and fun stuff), it really is a store for crafters. Employees have always been very nice. —EdWins
