Thanksgiving, and a Gift for the Holidays...

Today we would like you to say thank-you and send the happiest of wishes for this Thanksgiving week. We know you have alot to do, hosting family members who have traveled a fair distance, dinners to cook and little ones who need some extra hugs. Thanksgiving is a mixed bag of happy, delighted, stressed, overtired and over joyed. Sometimes it can be hard to pick! That is the soup of family relationships. We all try to do the best job we can and hug each other at the end of the day.

At Mary Jo's we consider you a part of our Cloth Store Family. We have known many of you from the day we opened our doors in Dallas, North Carolina. We all kind of grew up together. We have seen so many changes in the world of business since we opened our doors. Who could have dreamed of the power of the internet and computers, oh so many years ago?, indeed!
These past 62 years have flown by, filled with children, family, friends and working and keeping up with the Cloth Store. We have worked hard all these years to make sure that you do indeed feel like family. It's easy, we love what we do, everyday! So a special heartfelt thanks to ALL of you, our customers who truly do make a difference. You send us such nice notes and emails, detailing the most recent project you have finished. Ah, joy!
We also want to give a heartfelt thanks to our staff, on the floor and in the office. Without them we would just be a 32,000 building filled with fabric. Yes, they make all of the difference. Happy Thanksgiving.
We give thanks every day!

This Holiday Season we would like you to consider some home sewn items. Family and friends will be delighted by your creativity. Think about maybe stitching up a quilt or a doll for a child who is cold or lonely? You could make stockings for children in a shelter or take some time and look around to see what fabric scraps you have laying around and whip up a warm quilted blanket for an elderly person who has no family. It is easy to be generous. Take a moment and go online to see about a local shelter that could really use your help.

Our gift to you this year is FREE shipping for the entire month of December. Do you know someone who is a Quilter, a Dollmaker or Home Decor specialist? We have many departments and you can find most anything you may be looking to buy. If you cannot decide, you may want to consider a gift certificate. The gift of fabric is never a bad idea! It is so easy to log onto, click and order.

But know this, you will save money. This we promise. One of our quirky but good habits is making sure our prices are the best, always. We have many new choices and we are always updating the SALE and Seasonal Specials. We also have a Mary Jo's Cloth Store Canvas Tote Bag. At $1.99 you can load up and use them for Gift Bags or Grocery Shopping!

Happy Thanksgiving. Check out or Facebook page and our Pinterest Boards, to see the latest news, ideas and specials.
