    Holy Crap! (hope this doesn't get me kicked off the board)
    I have never heard of them but just did a virtual tour of the quilting area. I must take a vacation there some day.
    Have fun.

    Hope you have a thick billfold. You can spend 500.00 in a heart beat.
    I will be pouting because I'm not with you. :cry:

    It has been about 20 or so years since I was at Mary Jo's.

    My ex-MIL and I use to drive down there about 3-4 times
    a year we lived on Lake Norman (in Sherrills Ford).

    Of course I have been gone from NC since August 1998.

    About 3 1/2 hours. I live a little bit south of Charlotte and my daughter lives in Durham. Takes us about 3 1/2 hours to make the trip. Gastonia might be a smidge further.

    I was just there yesterday... the new Targe is indeed open, and Dicks.. good places to leave the husbands!!! I think there is a New Longhorn Steakhouse & an Olive Garden right there also... fabric seemed to be about 2 to 3$$$ cheaper than quilt shops.. did also go to Sew Much Fun, which is the other store someone was talking about.. very nice ladies & they have wonderful fabrics & Bernina machines if you are looking for something for yours..... Have fun ladies, be careful driving, and show us your bounty when you return!!!

    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.

    My DH and I went there from my town in NY State and it was a 10 hour drive. Of course we also visited friends and family in the area for 5 days.
    I love they way her fabrics are all categorized.
    Have fun.

    If you go through Atlanta, stop at Intown Quilts in Decatur. It's right off the freeway and easy to find....just google it for directions.

    Mary Jo's is a very very large fabric store in Gastonia NC. I think its about 30,000 sq feet. Its HUGE. The selection is awesome. Seeing how we are driving about 450 miles from fl to NC you know its worth the trip. check out her website
