iPhone-o-Gram! A bit of Mary Jos!

Each time I come here something has changed!!

They moved the fat quarter table. But you can still get grits and cornmeal with your fabric!

Pati and I are having a great time/--just hit the Chinese buffet for lunch and now are off to discover a new to us antique place!

  2. I tell my kids when they get to Heaven to look for me at the quilt shop. Your friends shopping with you get as close to Heaven on earth as it gets...ah, fabric AND Bonnie...sweet.~

  4. I usually only stop on my way to Dad's and am on a bee line to get what I am after...how fun to be able to spend most of a day checking things out down there.

  14. I haven't been to Mary Jo's for a couple of years - makes me want to go on a road trip. The grits sound good. I haven't seen that brand around here.

  17. Haha! "Hey, be right back, I just gotta run out for some grits!" Great for the stealthy fabric shopper!

    If you are at MaryJo's in Gastonia, NC - I'm drooling! Lived there for ten years and moving from there it was the worst thing about moving. I go to the website and just do the virtual tour to make myself more happy and order once in a while just to "keep" it fresh in my mind. So many happy memories there of shopping with friend and my little grandson who loved fabric and the button box on the counter where the patterns were. Is it still there???? If so, please let me know you guys. BT (A Mary Jo Supporter Forever!)

  24. I moved here two years ago and was NOT happy. Then I walked in to Mary Jo's and I called my husband and said, "Now I know why I was meant to move here."
