Has anyone been to Marshall Dry Goods in Batesville, AR and Mary Jo's Cloth store in Gastonia, NC? How do they compare? I'm going to Mary Jo's in November and Marshall Dry Goods in December. I have a limited budget trying to decide how to divide the funds. Thank you

I haven't been to either, but would love to go to both places. Please let show us what you buy from each place. Have fun shopping.

Never been to Marshalls but have been to Mary Jo's and can't begin to tell you what a pleasure it was! I spent over $400 - and had no intention of doing so! But the price and quality and selection was incredible! One word of caution, buy all you need while there. I decided I needed a couple more yards of a certain fabric when I got home the next day. Called them and even sent them a picture of the fabric and it was all gone already - and it was a full bolt I bought from!

Marsye, who used to be around the board all the time, LOVED Marshall's! She had been several times and couldn't say enough about it.

I seem to remember Eddie has been, too, and liked it.

I live about 25 mins. from Mary Jo's. Love this shop. So much to choose from and the prices aren't bad. The sales people are very helpful.

I have purchased tons from Marshall's, no one has prices like theirs. My problem is I order most of my material online, live in a VERY small town. I always buy 100% cotton, but some are good and some are not worth a dime. I wish there was some way of knowing the quality before ordering.

My friend Shirley and I just got back from both Marshalls and MaryJo's.I had also been to Marshalls in June. Spent way too much both times. In my opinion Marshalls has the best price on fabric. I did not really buy much fabric at MaryJo's although they do have a lot more to choose from. They probably have anything a person could be looking for. I do believe they have the best price I have seen on notions.. rulers, interfacing etc.
