Handbags-A Different Take...

A wonderful thing has been happening here at Mary Jo's Cloth Store. We are creating an online community. Our customers (YOU) have been sending in your stories, pictures, tips and ideas about how you are using the fabric you purchased. The projects you have shared have been wonderful. Grandmothers sharing quilts and baby clothes, ladies who have turned their passion into businesses have shared clothes, blankets, handbags, art and upholstery ideas. The quilting community is huge and very talented. It is a joy to see photos of so many beautiful projects. How touching to have had such a huge response. Because of all of the emails we have received we thought it may be a good idea to launch a Customer Community Page on our website, so keep an eye out for it!

I have posted a slide-show of some of our newest fabrics to inspire the creative muse! We have been stocking Drapery and Upholstery Fabric in all of the newest colors, textures and patterns for the Autumn season. Shop now the selection is amazing!

La Toya Stevens wrote the following letter to us. She has a wonderful story and is a determined young woman.
"I believe that everyone in the upholstery department knows my face. I design a line of handbags under Miss Pretty Perfect. I credit Mary Jo and her wonderful operation, for getting me started. I love Mary Jo's. I travel from Hickory to visit. I had the pleasure of meeting Mary Jo and listening to her rise to 'fame'. The story she shared with my mother and I was truly amazing. God is Wonderful. He is doing wonderful things for me, as well. I have a website that I sell my handbags from I learned about Mary Jo's website on my last visit this past Saturday. I just visited the site and the blog, and I am truly impressed! Even though I appreciate the convenience of being able to shop on line, the visit to store is worth the drive for me. The atmosphere gets my wheels turning and the workers are very friendly and helpful. Mary Jo's will always be my favorite fabric store!"

Miss Pretty Perfect handbags was launched in Winter 2007, by Designer La Toya Stevens.
