    No, no shopping carts. Take something with wheels on it, even if its your sewing machine caddy. Those baskets get heavy after a while!

    I make at least two trips a month to Mary Jos - wonderful selection of fabrics quilting and otherwise, batting is the lowest price I have ever found and good quality - you can buy it off the bolt.... they sell a variety of wide backs and have the cheapest prices on quilt supplies (rulers, mats etc) they also sell lots and lots of stuff needed for sewing like retain, synthrolpol if you are going to be their anyway you defiantly need to stop at sew much fun it really is around the corner about a mile down - very nice quilt shop and Bernina dealer I was at the big quilt show in cabbaras yesterday and sew much fun had a great booth. ENjoy and get your feel of feeling and playing with fabric (BTW the tear their fabric to keep it on grain they also only cut/tear one size in other words don't ask them to give you smaller pieces that a quilt calls for they also have bunches of wonderful novelty fabrics and amazing blenders!

    I live in Erie, Pa., and I found out about that place about 1 year ago from some other quilters that were there. They had a great time.
    I sure hope to get there sometime. Maybe next year. Anyway, have fun shopping. I'm just as excited for you. Let us know how you made out.

    How far is Gastonia from Durham? Family living there and perhaps I might just be able to make a visit one time.

    The name of the thread store is Long Creek Mills located off of Exit 14 , I -85 South. Get off exit turn right, go to intersection , Franklin Blvd, turn left, take your next left at light,Webb St, store in on your right hand side,after the florist shop. Its small but has the best selection of serger thread, machine emb. thread, stabilizers, disposable bobbins etc. Worth the trip.

I am looking for blenders as I used all mine up. Even if we don't meet have a barrel of fun, gotta find someplace to deposit the DH while I shop!
    Drop your DH off at one of the Nascar team shops back up the road...

    Although I live only an hour away from Mary Jo's, I made the mistake ONCE of taking my husband with me. As he sat down outside the store, he asked whether I thought I would be there as long as an hour. For some reason he didn't understand my hysterical laughter in response.

    DH can drop you at the store and head for NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte off I-277 close to Bank of America Staduim home of the Carolina Panther and Bobcat Area home of the Charlotte Bobcats. Or head north on I-85 into Concord and check out the Charlotte Motor Speedway. They do tours of the track,even taking you out onto the track itself. Don't let him know that for a few $$ they will let him drive his car out on the track! He can also visit a bunch of the different garages in the area for the different teams. Just ask anyone in around the Speedway which team you are looking for and they will give you directions
