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.

Do you know Mary Jo's has a no refund policy on everything, even the unopened items ? i found out the hard way, that's why they have that man sitting at the door with the gun because no business does that anymore this is 2017.

For virtually anything and everything. As well as anything else you may need for sewing projects. It is all here.

Mary Jo's is changing. They no longer offer a large selection and variety of upholstery fabric that they have been known for. They now have 12 inch swatches hanging on rods. You have to order a minimum of 5 yards. The swatches are permanently attached...More

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