About Us

Tucked away in the foothills of North Carolina is one of North Carolina’s best kept secrets, Mary Jo’s Cloth Store, a 32,000 square foot, fabric store mecca where you’ll find mountains of fabric at thimble sized prices.

Founded in 1951 by Margaret Cloninger in the back of her father’s grocery store, Mary Jo’s Cloth Store has become one of the largest fabric stores in the Southeast servicing clients from around the world. Mary Jo’s has something to offer for every quilter and sewing fanatic alike, from do-it-yourself moms to Hollywood blockbusters, and everyone in between.

Mary Jo Cloninger broke barriers for women owned businesses in the 50’s when she first opened the store, but that wasn’t her intention. She set out to simply sell a variety of quality fabrics at reasonable prices, and that same business model has kept customers coming back again and again. Mary Jo’s Cloth Store has created a loyal following of customers throughout the decades with dependable service, quality products and the absolute greatest customer service you can imagine.

In the past several years Mary Jo’s Cloth Store has expanded by opening their very own sewing center, complete with in-house sales of Baby Lock sewing machines, launching a series of monthly sewing classes, developing a collection of annual sales events that attract customers from all over the country and launching their own social media platforms to keep up with their ever-growing, younger audience.
