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've been here many times and bought a lot of fabric here. I took my very first sewing class here but it was very poorly handled and in the end I learned very little and took a similar class elsewhere. In fact we spent a lot of class time being led through the store being encouraged to buy lots of... More

Mary Jo's is surprisingly one of the biggest attractions for our town. I manage a hotel and you wouldn't believe how far some will travel just to visit this place. Mary Jo's works with my hotel sometimes because they even have events with lots of out-of-town visitors, and everyone I have ever dealt with is so friendly. To my knowledge,... More

Been there many times especially when looking for something special. Choices are overwhelming but in a great way. If you can't find what you want there you might not find it any where else. My suggestion: go with a project in mind otherwise you'll just be looking around. I have friends who drive 700 miles just to go to this... More

This day happened to be their annual Girls Day Out Sale. It was very busy, with lots of ladies hanging to win the door prizes given out every 15 minutes or so! The selection of upholstery fabrics, and quilting fabrics was outstanding. Very fun to look around. Prices were good.

I recently brought a houseguest who sews and quilts to this store. She was amazed, to put it mildly. Mary Jo's is a HUGE store that features not only an incredible variety of fabrics, but also a long wall full of all kinds of accessories and sewing needs to fit every kind of sewing project, from everyday sewing to quilting...

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
