Made my first visit to Mary Jo's in Gastonia NC, which came about because I drove Timmy to Columbia SC to meet up with a friend and thence back to Life as a Marine at Jacksonville:
It was definitely worth a visit. There was plenty of reproduction quilting fabric in addition to batiks, novelties, solids, and feedsacks. Their stock also includes bridal and other garment fabrics, notions, drapery and upholstery, and utility fabrics like ironing board fabric. I got the above, that includes several French Quarters, Centennial Solids, one batik, one Art Deco, a Fusion, a Dimples etc. The bottom left fabric is nice. It has six shades of green on it in big bands; wish I had gotten a ton of those. Not pictured background fabric for the Bird of Paradise quilt and the aforesaid ironing board fabric. A nice haul.
I am looking through my EQ7 update this morning and will report back if I seem to have anything of interest to share.
