    I am planning a road trip to Mary Jo's Fabric Store in Gastonia, NC on Saturday, November 7th. The store is approximately 5 hours from my house in Wimington, NC. If there are others on this list that live in my area and you would like to go, you are more than welcome.

    Momadoglewis expressed an interest. She lives in Beaulaville, NC which is not far from me. Piedmont Quilter & Ninnie live near Mary Jo's so we're hoping this date will work out for them to meet us there.

    I have a small suv and can seat 4 passengers comfortably (other than myself) If you think you may be interested, think about it and pm me. Once we determine who's going and where everybody lives we will work out the details.

    I have been wanting to go for a long time but have had so much going on it just never happened. If you are not familiar with Mary Jo's, they have a website here: http://maryjos.com/

    I have heard the same thing from a lot of people. I have back trouble so I know I can't walk through the entire place but all they need to do is point me in the direction of their cotton quilt fabric. I may have to leave my credit cards at home...I'm almost afraid to take them, lol!

    Ninnie, I meant to tell you I saved the directions on Mapquest web site and according to them it's only 4 hours from here which is even better...more time to shop!

    The all cotton fabric sections is huge. Can't imagine not being able to find what you want there. :D :D People come from all over the world to shop there. Did you take the virtual tour on her web site? She was there Saturday, and we talked for awhile. I have been going for years. there is nothing fancy about the place. When you go in the door, you will stop at the desk and get a basket and paper slips, which the cutters will write down your purchases on. they tear all their fabric, and it is always straight.So, whatever your pleasure is, you will find it! :D That is what I always get for my Birthday and other occasions, a trip to Mary Jo's :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Yes, I've been on their website many times and have talked to them on the phone...really nice to talk to. I am really excited about going.

    You must have some kind of stash collection! :D
