Mary Jo's is like the Mecca of the sewing world. Whatever your sewing project is you will find everything you need there. The staff is great very knowledgeable about sewing and the materials they have. They help you find exactly what you need. I go here for all my sewing projects.

I have shopped here for many years and have always had a hard time getting someone to help me. Not only that most of the employees are not friendly. The selection of fabric is huge and you could spend hours looking. All in all I would recommend this store because of their selection of fabrics and the prices.

I went looking for no-sew hemming tape. The lady up front was very nice and directed me to the right area. Once there, the lady took me right to what I needed. I don't sew but the ladies who work there do and really know their stuff. I would highly recommend this place to anyone for your sewing needs!

I am a former interior designer and I went to Mary Jo's to find some complimentary fabric for a drapery project. I had already picked a fabric at another store and thought I would be getting a good price there during their 40% off sale. I am so glad I checked at Mary Jo's because they had the same fabric...

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...
