    I showed my DH the website for MaryJo's in NC.....

    He said let's go!

    So we are going this weekend since I have the weekend off!

    Oh, be still my heart and my pocketbook!

    Not sure if this should have been under "Main" or here. Oh well, too excited about going.

    I live about 1 1/2 hr from Mary Jo's, and go as often as I dare :lol: :lol: am planning a trip soon.
    You will love it. If you have any questions, please just PM me. and I will tell you all I can. I have been going there for years now. and I could spend a week in there, and never see everything.There are several on this board who have been there.
    Have a blast!!!

    It is a 39,000 sq. ft. Fabric shop. There are all types of fabrics. She also has a huge cotton selection. I am talking rows of only blues, or reds. or etc. And hundreds of batiks, and well, you get the picture :-D you can go on line at http://www.maryjos.com/ and take a virtual tour.

    I'm so jealous. I live about 3 hours away and have not yet visited. The first time my DH has a weekend off with me we're going. No date, but as close to a plan as I can. Guess for now I'll try and save some money and read all the fun things that you have to say about your trip.

    Would love to take you along!
    But if we came to pick you up we'd be going to Marshall's instead. :lol:
    I like the spelling sale-ing.

    I'm about 30 minutes from there and it is mind boggling! Dh won't even let me near the place right now. :-( While you are there you should check out this place...its not far just around the corner or so I've been told. I have not been there but oh one day I'm gonna go!

    I will have a list of things I REALLY want to look for and maybe buy. I have a budget to watch. But I will get lots of ideas.


    It was a last minute road trip plan so haven't had time to really save up.

    But we only live 3 hours away and DH loves to get away from time to time, and since this was 'his' idea....

    Love it when a plan comes together without me coming right out and saying, "Can we go...." if you get my drift.

    QuiltingGrannie - Sounds like that place is a quilters dream!
    I can understand you being excited. So great that your DH suggested it! Have a great time! And don't forget the pics of your treasures!
