The Michaels by me hasn't set up the new yarn dept. yet but I did get to see the store brand, Loops and Threads. I agree, it's nothing new or spectacular, but if/when it goes on sale I think I'll buy me some to see what it's like. Anything is better than Red Heart and that seems to be what the craft stores stock the most of, which is just one of the reasons why I do most of my yarn shopping online. I also noticed more Homespun colors. Still, most of the other bins were empty last time I went so for the most part, I'm still waiting to see what's coming.
