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.

My experiences at Mary Jo's have been limited to needs seen for fabric by my wife, and each visit has been very beneficial. Last time we were there and searching for material for a living room couch, we met an interior designer who was there for the same reason. Lester is his name, and he was very helpful with the...

I was in there the other day and had found several pieces of fabric that I wanted so I got in line at the cutting table. There was one person in front of me and I noticed that the employee working the table was tearing the fabric instead of cutting it. When it was my turn I ask the girl... More

I've had the pleasure of living in Gastonia for over 20 years. Mary Jo's has been in the same location for years. I consider myself lucky to be so close because I've heard some ladies drive two days to reach this destination! They plan long distance trips around this stop and even stay overnight nearby! Any fabric, notions, pillows, stuffing,... More

THis was my second visit to Mary Jo's Cloth Store, and it's a consistent gem. I think it's heaven for a quilter: they have entire aisles for batiks, for stripes, for ditzy patterns, for hombres, for...everything! I am particularly impressed by the big aisle of re-enactment fabrics for civil war and period costumers. They have a selection of knits and... More

If you love quilting fabric and want variety read as solids, or novelty fabrics, stop at Mary Jo's when you are near Charlotte. Exit 21 on I-85. I totally disagree with the last two reviews I've seen. She carries Marcus, Northcutt, Robert Kaufman, all the dimples, fusions and other mixers you might need, and more novelty fabrics than you can... More
