Whether you’re a decoupage-loving elementary school art teacher or a grandmother who knits Fair Isle sweaters, Michaels can meet your arts and crafts needs. After building a base of 16 stores in Texas, Michaels went public in 1984. Public trading ceased in late 2006 after a deal that returned the company to private ownership. The company now operates Michaels stores in 49 states and Canada, as well as the Aaron Brothers chain of stores in eleven states.
