    Hope you planned plenty of time and have plenty of $$$. Don't forget about the thread outlet , not far from Mary Jo's. Its Long Creek Mills. Very good prices.
    Have a great time.. do share with us your purchases..

    I was there on Saturday, too. I bought fabrics to finish a few UFOs but it took me 3 hours to take in everything and buy 6 fabrics, because I love MJ's. Long Creek Mills is wonderful, too, and there is also a LQS about a mile from MJ's called Sew Much Fun that's a good stop. If you didn't have a chance to go yesterday, maybe next time you go can check it out. In October, they're moving to their new larger permanent shop just up the road a bit.

    You are so fortunate to get to go to Mary Jo's. For 15 years, I lived near Gastonia and was at Mary Jo's about once a week. How I miss my trips there. Mary Jo is a fascinating lady and I so love her shop.

    Oh did you go and have a wonderful time? I have been there a couple of times, sure wish I lived many states closer. MIL wants us to visit this fall, stopping at Mary Jos is the best part of the trip.

    Going to Mary Jo's today!! I live about an hour away but get to MJ's at least once every couple of weeks. I used to work in Gastonia and would plan "mini" trips to MJ's on my lunch hour. (I would have to have a "plan" or it wouldn't work.) Mary Jo herself works there. I am retired now and would love to work there but couldn't afford to pay for the gas back and forth because I would never bring home a paycheck. LOL
