Monthly Operating Report

As previously disclosed, on February 2, 2016 (the Petition Date),
Hancock Fabrics, Inc. (Hancock) and all of Hancocks direct and
indirect subsidiaries (collectively with Hancock, the Debtors)
filed voluntary petitions for relief under chapter 11 of title 11
of the United States Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware (the Bankruptcy Court, and the
filings therein, the Chapter 11 Filings). The chapter 11 cases
(the Chapter 11 Cases) are being jointly administered under the
caption In re Hancock Fabrics, Inc., et al. Case No. 16-10296.

During the pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases, Hancock has adopted
a modified reporting program with respect to its reporting
obligations under federal securities laws. In lieu of filing
annual reports on Form 10-K and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q,
each month Hancock will file with the Securities and Exchange
Commission a current report on Form 8-K that will have attached
to it the monthly financial report required to be filed with the
Bankruptcy Court.

On April 12, 2017, the Debtors filed their monthly operating
report for the period beginning February 26, 2017 and ending
April 1, 2017 (the Monthly Operating Report) with the Bankruptcy
Court. The Monthly Operating Report is attached hereto as Exhibit
99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Cautionary Note Regarding Monthly Operating Report

Hancock cautions investors and potential investors not to place
undue reliance upon the information contained in the Monthly
Operating Report, which was not prepared for the purpose of
providing the basis for an investment decision relating to any of
the securities of Hancock. The Monthly Operating Report is
limited in scope, covers a limited time period and has been
prepared solely for the purpose of complying with the monthly
reporting requirements applicable in the Chapter 11 Cases.
Hancock is not required to publicly update the Monthly Operating
Report to reflect more current facts or estimates or the
occurrence of future events, including if the facts, estimates
and assumptions upon which the Monthly Operating Report is based
are erroneous. The Monthly Operating Report was not audited or
reviewed by independent public accountants, does not contain all
of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted
accounting principles in the United States, and is subject to
future adjustment and reconciliation. There can be no assurance
that, from the perspective of an investor or potential investor
in Hancocks securities, the Monthly Operating Report is complete.
The Monthly Operating Report also contains information for
periods which are shorter or otherwise different from those
required in Hancocks reports to the Securities Exchange Act of
1934 (the Exchange Act), and such information might not be
indicative of Hancocks financial condition or operating results
for the period that would be reflected in Hancocks financial
statements or in its reports to the Exchange Act. Results set
forth in the Monthly Operating Report should not be viewed as
indicative of future results.
