    This coming Monday I am going to Mary Jo's with 2 girlfriends. We are so ready for this trip. In the past when i have been there with my DH we were either coming back from a trip or making a trip and had little time to shop. Its 430 miles from Florida but we have our movies, magazines and snacks. We will be there 3 yes THREE whole days to shop this fantastic store and also go to Long Creek Mills for threads. We have a BIG VAN and each of us have a long list. Let the fun begin.

    The most important thing to remember- comfortable shoes!

    Three days is smart, it'll take that long to see everything. Have fun!!

    Nobody believes me that people come from states away to shop at MaryJo's!!

    There is a little sewing shop down in the shopping center with PetSmart, Kohls, it's called Sew Much Fun.Chilies and Applebee's are in the same area. Ruby Tuesday's across the road has good food from MaryJo's. Qdoba if you like Mexican is in the same shopping center. Outback is on New Hope Rd, one exit south ask for James as your servers, he's awesome. BBQ? Hillbillies, 2 exits north. Breakfast buffet-Golden Corral over on Franklin, fuel up for a day of shopping!!

    Man you get to go with friends. I'm not allowed to go without my husband as a chaperone!!!

    Thanks for the heads up on restaurants etc. And no they dont have carts to help carry your stuff, but we are bringing those laundry carts or what some people call old lady carts that haul groceries etc. mary jo will give you a cart to use if you need it if say you need it to help you walk etc. She's very nice and accommodating. Three credit cards and my hidden stash I am so ready. Not sure about the cost of fabric I do know they have the most fabric I have ever seen and they are usually a little bit cheaper then quilt stores. Its the thrill of the adventure that calls us there.
