Resolutions & Free Shipping and an Elephant...

Today is the final day of free shipping. To tempt you we have added some new items to our Sale Page, we have 175 fabrics, on sale today.
Imagine a tapestry fabric for only 3.50 a yard or a beautiful cotton printed pattern by Richloom for only 4.50 per yard? We are also featuring a line of small prints and large damask style patterns, again as low as 4.50 per yard. One of the beauties we have on the Sale Page is a woven upholstery fabric with a contemporary pattern in beige's and deep taupe's. This fabric would look stunning on an Ottoman, Chair, Pillows or even a heavy Duvet Cover. Oh, the best part? Somewhere else you may pay upwards of 30-40 dollars per yard, we are offering this beauty at only 13.98 per yard. If you want to find this specific bolt, log onto the Sale Page and click until you get to number 124, you will not be disappointed. While you are shopping, think about the upcoming year and the projects you have resolved to start and complete. We have much of what you may need. Do not hesitate to "Ask Mary Jo" any question you may have about what we carry and what you are in need of. We are here to help and make your experience the best it could possibly be.
Here is a fun challenge, on the Sale page we have fabric that features a classic Indian style Elephant. So here is the idea, what cool thing can you do with this fanciful printed piece? A Pillow, Tote, or pieces in a Quilt. I am looking forward to some emails with photos of what YOU did with this fun and fanciful Elephant.
Let us be the first to wish you and your family a 2011 that is filled with harmony, happiness, prosperity and plenty of time to sew!

This is Mary Ellen wearing my Christmas project. This is made from a pattern from Sew Baby. It is neon pink corduroy with cottons by Robert Kaufman and Michael Miller. All from Mary Jo's!

Warm & Bright, Just Right for Quilting...

When was the last time you took a moment for you and spent some time on the "Quilting" section at We know it is always an event and an adventure to come into the store and spend hours perusing our 32,000 square feet of fabric. But here is a tip, you could browse around on and find much of what we have in the store posted and for sale online! Our ladies work really hard to keep the collection online current and filled with most of what you may need.
Looking at the quilting section today was an inspiration. Did you know we have fabrics by some of the top fabric designers and manufactures in the United States? Yes, one of the collections we are featuring was created by Patrick Lose he calls it Marble Mania. It is a magical color saturated fabric and true eye candy. This collection would be at home matched with bold or subtle patterns and really lends itself to the popular colors we are seeing more and more of in this seasons home collections. Oh and the best part is it is only $6.09 per yard and remember free shipping during the month of December. We also have the perennial favorite, 1895 Bali Batiks by Hoffman. So fantastic and so many colors, this collection comes in at only 6.29 per yard. The third we would like to share with you is Palette by Jinny Beyer. Sophisticated this fabric comes in subtle and bright colors, color on color pattern it is a true beauty. You can pick this up online for only 5.99 a yard. Any of these series would also be lovely fabric for tablecloths, backsides of quilts and pillows.
When you are online take an extra moment and log onto our Sale and What's Hot pages. We of course have tons of sale fabric but we are also featuring many pre-made items (Blankets, Tote Bags, even a few large Cowhides), oh yes we have something for everyone and these gifts would be perfect for under the tree.
