New Fonts

I've been hesitant to write this post, but it needs to be said at some point. So fair warning, this post has some politics in it. I know I know, you never discuss politics in polite conversation.

I no longer shop at Hobby Lobby.

When the Supreme Court allowed a corporation to have more rights than a human being, or rather be more important than women in general, I could no longer spend my money with them. There are plenty of other options in my area, and I've moved on with no regret. JoAnn's is currently my favorite as their online is easy to search, they have plenty of options, and give a student discount!

Now about how this affects ReenieKnits: All these boards were made with letters found at HL. Since I would no longer be shopping there I would need to find another way to make these letters.

JoAnn's happens to carry the large size in the same, or very similar font, (I think the exact same) but I still went and found some more/other options. Now when you order a custom board from me you can choose what style letters you would like.

(To the left) These are called "Casual Day". They are a little bit blocky, and I like them, except for the O.

 (To the right) These are called "Dot to Dot" and the remind me of my high school days making posters or writing notes to the BFF.

I made a comparison shot, of the old with the two new fonts. If the old font is still your favorite, be aware that I do not have all the letters, and it may not be possible. Though, I am still hoping I can find another seller and get that font back in my inventory.

So good bye Hobby Lobby, its been nice knowing you. You provided wonderful fake flowers for my wedding. You were always so generous with the wrapping paper. I could count on you for the endless hours of time wasted scoping out the new fun quirky things you had on your shelves. No more, until you provide your employees with the compensation they deserve, the compensation they are guaranteed by law, I say good bye.
