Quilting:Colors, Selection and Shows...
Quilt shows. They are held almost every week somewhere in America!
At Mary Jo’s we have a core group of quilters who come to us for not only amazing prices but a selection that they call “the mecca” for quilting fabric. We carry historic prints, as well as all of the modern and contemporary designs you may be looking for.
When Mary Jo set out to create the quilting areas in the stores she was fastidious in her approach. All fabric is displayed in colorways, and then broken down into specifics; Historic, Veggies, Animals, Nature ect. Not only does she make it easy for her shoppers to find what they need but her approach is inspiring. To look at 32,000 sq. ft totally organized by color, print and function makes for an easier approach to such a large store. Shopping online is easy as well. We have thumbnails of all fabrics available online. But did you know if you are looking for something specific you can send a photo into “Ask Mary Jo” and within a few days a member of our staff will get back to you with the answer you are looking for.
Remember at the store we also have many notions and an interesting selection of “Fat Quarters” for all of your quilting and sewing needs. Pop by the store or log on today to get inspired or to pick up the last bit of what you may need to finish or start your quilting projects. Remember send us photos and letters, we want to know what you are up to and we would love to feature you on this blog and/or our Community Page.
