Staff App Pick: Start your next crafting project off right with the Jo-Ann Fabrics app for Windows Phone

Each week, we bring you a new app recommendation from our colleagues. This Staff App Pick comes from Donna Bank-Hoglen, Operations and Community Manager in the Enterprise and Partner Group at Microsoft.


I love to craft and I love Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, so I was really jazzed when the Jo-Ann app for Windows Phone launched recently. It’s a beautiful app and very user friendly. 

If you need to know anything about Jo-Ann Fabrics, it’s that they have awesome coupons and deals. The first thing to see when you open up the app is the Daily Deal. I also like the search feature, which enables me to search for and save the projects I’m interested in and send them to my friends in my craft circle. And of course, it’s easy to pin projects to my Pinterest craft board.

The app displays fabrics beautifully. The images are so clear that you can actually see blue-on-blue patterns on the phone. In addition, the idea center is a great way for me to find a project for special occasions I might learn about throughout the day. It’s also easy to order online from my phone or stop by the store and pick up supplies listed in the app.

If you’re into crafting the way I am, then you’ll definitely want to check out the Jo-Ann Fabrics app in the Windows Phone Store today.
