The place for fabric!

My experience with Mary Jo's is generally mixed. It's not "kid-friendly", but kids love to feel the various fabrics and the textures range from upholstery to fine silk. The... read more

I went with a friend and thought I'd look for some fabric for curtains. I was blown away by the selection. I hadn't imagined such wonderfully vibrant and fun fabrics. There were so many unique designs that I had a hard time choosing. I ended up with tons of fabric and only made it through half the store. We worked... More

Lots and lots of fabric choices. Great selection of cotton and upholstery to choose from. Employees Never give names for referrals. They have added classes, which I have heard are wondeful. Employees have been there for years. New hours are convenient. But, never have coupons.

My experience with Mary Jo's is generally mixed. It's not "kid-friendly", but kids love to feel the various fabrics and the textures range from upholstery to fine silk. The "minky" fabric that feels like the softest thing on the planet is soooo hard to resist smoothing out with your hands, let alone a young child! I really feel that this... More

You cannot imagine the variety of cloth in this store. I've been visiting Mary Jo's since the mid 60s and have seen this store grow tremendously. The staff is very knowledgeable, just not very friendly. If you can get past the unfriendliness you can find just about anything you want in the way of fabric and/or notions.

Been going through out the many years, and I have never been disappointed. They have all the colors you would ever need great items on sale and if they don't have it they can order it for you.

We enjoy Mary Jo's. It is a Mecca of fabric. Now they have a web site, too! Add .com to the name. Of course, you have to feel it to appreciate it.

This store is an icon in the area and has been for years. There are so many choices, sometimes too many for me, although prices have crept up and unless I can't find anything else, it's more costly to sew for yourself than to buy ready made.

This place is huge, has tons and tons of fabric, notions, patterns, lace, ribbons, a quilters dream! I don't go unless I have at least 2 hours to browse around. Always find plenty of choices, sometimes TOO many! Love this place!

Mary's Jo's if known up and down the east coast. Bus loads make the trip. There is a large selection of every sort of fabrics. If you want to know what and how to sew they are there to answer any question. The prices are the best in this area.

They have probably every kind of fabric made and such a wide variety of colors and prints. Just about every NFL fabric and most college in cotton and fleece. Anything you need to sew they have it.
