Spring Into A "Fresh" New Look...
The weather is finally turning warmer and it is time to think about some "Spring Decorating". Yes, the light is brighter, the days longer and those warm breezes are a welcome addition after this very cold winter. At Mary Jo's Cloth Store we have been stocking the shelves with light and fresh fabrics.
The colors this year are bright and cheerful, which is a welcome relief to all of the economic news we read in the
paper and hear on the news everyday. Some of the retro-modern colors are making a comeback along sporting a distinct graphic and patterned look. It can be a real mood lifter to come home and feel happy in the place we live. A home should reflect the taste, interests and lifestyle of the families who inhabit them. Take a moment to think of the styles and colors you love, be brave and consider surrounding yourself with them!. Peruse your favorite design magazines, and catalogs for inspiration, you won't be dissappointed.
Trims are also another important component and tool in making a window treatment not only special but even remarkable. We have an extensive collection of everything from beads, to silk rope and most anything between your heart would desire.
We are now carrying a good selection of "Green" and environmentally friendly fabrics. Yes life is good, spring is here and the possibilities as always, are endless.
Recently a customer wrote in, she is a Drapery Designer and Specialist.
"My name is Sherri Bowman, owner of my home-based business "Decorating
With Style". I am a drapery designer and I sew all types of window
treatments, bedding, pillows, etc. Over the years, I have made many
window treatments from beautiful fabrics purchased from Mary Jo's. I
have also given numerous referrals to my customers when shopping for
fabric to look at Mary Jo's! I tell them, "If you can't find it at
Mary Jo's, you are in trouble!" Thanks for offering beautiful fabrics at great
prices and employing friendly, knowledgeable people. "
