I have been shopping at Mary Jo's since I moved here 25 years ago. In that time I have purchased from every department of the shop. If they stock it they probably have a selection and the price will be good. They have changed how...More

Most of what they carry can be purchase for less on line. They do have quite a collection but I will not patron this place given the history.

I was thrilled when I moved to Charlotte (NC) 15 years ago and discovered Mary Jo’s. As a long time quilter and sewist, Mary Jo’s had a great selection of both quality quilt fabrics and fine fabrics for making clothes. Sadly, this is no longer...More

This is a GASTONIA icon! If you need fabric or notions no need to go anywhere else. Although the owner died this year, this business has been here for decades. When the mall where it is located was torn down and rebuilt a few years...More

I don't sew and they do not have many other crafts. I think they have a very good selection of different cloth.

Mary Jos has all of my fabric needs. Largest selection of everything. I do miss the small town uniqueness of it. However, the classes are a new welcomed addition. I always come here first for rare finds in fabric selection

People drive from hours and hours to get to this fabric mecca! Be prepared to be overwhelmed but find exactly what you want!

I know that they carry some, but I am not positive whether the selection is "large."
