I don’t sew much so I’m not familiar with a cloth store in general, but I had to make my costume for Halloween this year. I went inside and looked around but the store is so big and has a lot of materials. Basically I...More

First let me preface this by saying I am mostly a quilter so I was looking primarily for cotton fabrics. I drove from Raleigh to Gastonia based on the reviews that raved about Mary Jo's. I was sorely disappointed. The selection of cotton fabrics was...More

I don't sew and they do not have many other crafts. I think they have a very good selection of different cloth.

Mary Jos has all of my fabric needs. Largest selection of everything. I do miss the small town uniqueness of it. However, the classes are a new welcomed addition. I always come here first for rare finds in fabric selection

People drive from hours and hours to get to this fabric mecca! Be prepared to be overwhelmed but find exactly what you want!

Great place to get all your sewing needs. Reasonable prices, and hard to find material. Great for wedding accessories.

This used to be the best place to buy fabric, but now their prices are too high. Hobby Lobby has lower prices. Mary Jo's has more fabric to choose from, but I will go to Hobby Lobby first from now on.

I know that they carry some, but I am not positive whether the selection is "large."
