The Dixie stars crossed 3 states to visit maryjo’s in Gastonia nc, this place is massive, but we used a divide and conquer approach with great success. No photos on the quilting front or at lunch, but we had a great time. Kathy has this really cool app on her phone that uses a gps to give you a list of quilt shops in the area. We went to the quilted thimble cottage which is a lovely place that until recently had only provided quilting service, but has begun to carry fabrics. The people there were super nice, so if you are in Belmont, NC, look them up. Here’s what I got at maryjo’s and the quilt shop-I have plans for project bags for a lot of what I got, and was thrilled to get a piece of backing for a queen size quilt top I made, and I won’t have to piece it together (yea!).
