Scarves, Beaded Trim & Summer Fun...
Did you know that Mary Jo's Cloth Store has all of the fabric possibilities for your Scarves, Sari's, Harem Pants and those tight little blouses you will need to cover up, underneath! This is the fabric you would need for the "Dance of the Seven Veils", sheer silks and organza's that will delight you. We have a variety of colors from light and airy to dark and dramatic.
We also stock a great selection of woven and textured sheer fabrics that makes for an interesting selection to fit your every need. It is almost summer and may be time to shake up your scarf collection, now is the time to noodle around and find the color that suits you. Log on to maryjos.com or stop in to see check out the possibilities. Just a thought, I also use this sheer and lovely fabric for summertime window treatments. I adore the way the material moves and sways in every little breeze. Take a moment and imagine the possibilities.
Now let's talk about the terrific choices in our "Trim Department". Our customers come from far and near to shop our trim department. A few weeks ago I was checking out the selection and I saw everything from Faux to Glass Beads as well as wood and painted baubles. All of the trim is so inspiring and with so many choices it is truly hard to choose just one. (Sometimes I get dizzy with all of the choices!) Often times our customers will also use some of these amazing beauties on Pillows, Drapes, Upholstery and Purses as well as Costumes and Dollmaking. Mary Jo's trim is such a great deal that folks are always buying up whole bolts! The prices on trim are remarkable. I noted a brown beaded trim that was only, hold on, 5.98 per yard! Although the really special intricate ones can be as much as 14.98 a yard which is still a bargain. Sometimes, no most of the time, I cannot believe Mary Jo's prices. Recently I was in Los Angeles at a big fabric/trim store and prices for the same trim was triple and even quadruple what Mary Jo's Cloth Store charges. Here is a "Trim" secret you should know, if you have a special color or type of beaded trim you are looking for please send us a photo of what you need and we will be happy to check to see if we have it.
