I wrote to American Crafts thru an email today and they wrote me back. I had told them that in NJ we don't have Hobby Lobby or Archivers, and would Project Life be offered at our big box stores, and this is what they said:


Thank you for contacting us! Yes, we will be offering Project Life and various chain stores and independent retailers nationwide. Our first shipment to these stores will be around June 1st. I know that Michael's is definitely bringing it in, and that we do sell to AC Moore as well.

Me too...I'm excited about not paying shipping too. It's also nice to see and touch a product before I buy it.

There are a couple of stores in NJ...kindda in our area, I'm in Lincoln Park.
There is Scrap-A-Doodle-Doo in Ramsey.
Also, there is Paper Anthology in Kenville, which is right off of exit 30 on Rte 80. There is also a new Joanns (small but really nice and different things than the one in Paramus) that is close to this store.

I'd guess they'll start getting them around the same time. I kind of feel bad for the LSS that have ordered it. If people know that the big box stores will be getting it just a month later and you can use can use a coupon why would you buy it at the LSS.

Yes, it could be a real problem for the LSS, but I'm not sure if they will allow coupons. Also, the LSS I work for hasn't ordered a ton of kits. Most of our customers don't like shopping at the big box stores. Plus, not all the kits will be available at the big box stores-my understanding from AC. And, believe it or not, lts of people have no idea what PL even is! Nor are they as savvy as most of the peas are!

Was at hobby lobby today and the pegged reset was up for project life but was empty. They are going to carry midnight, honey and cinnamon.
