Hi, Anne! There is one about ten minutes away from me in Norway called the Irish Ewe, and the other is in Auburn (15 minutes away) called Quilt Essentials. They're both really cool places. I don't know of any others near me, though. I live in Oxford. Sebago is near Windham, isn't it?

Good Morning Kahlua!

Yes Sebago is near Windham - we are actually between Windham and Bridgton.

Quilt Essentials... sounds like a fun place. I wish I were more familiar with Auburn. We use to shop there a bit when I lived in Rangeley. May have to take a ride and find this shop :cheering: My husband use to race at Oxford-he gave it up shortly after we met (not due to my influence! lol) So I never got to watch him race. I am not sure if I am disappointed or happy about that lol.. might have made me nervous.

The closest LYS for me would be Korner Knitters in Standish-the folks there are very friendly and helpful!:heart: I tend to go to AC Moore in S. Portland, it is close to work-actually on my way home.

I had better get some work done... enjoy your day! :hug:going to be warm - no ocean breeze today :passedout:

Blue Eyes... how is #114 now? I have been traveling into work on route #25 lately to avoid the construction. :( Hope you are staying cool today :)

It is still a mess I think we avoid it as much as possible too.We just came in from outside the kids were playing in the sprinkler.

Stonington
07-26-2007, 11:43 AM
:cheering:I wanna play too! lol.. use to love doing that with my daughter when she was small. I know I am weird but I love the smell of water from the hose.. must be the memories it envokes :heart:

Kind of figured that 114 was still a mess. There is a sign in Gorham before you get to GHOP that warns of rough road ahead.

Unfortunatley our sprinkler time didn't last long because the little one got sunscreen in his eyes and tried to rub it out with a sandy hands. I like the smell of water from the hose too or maybe it is a combonation of the water and the grass I am not sure.

I hope your little one is doing better now, blueeyes28. I know where Gorham is, and I think I know how to get to Standish, too. lol

Anne - Quilt Essentials is fantastic - they've got lots of pretty fabric, too. Tons of books, and so much yarn, and a big bargain corner!

Stonington
07-26-2007, 01:02 PM
Bargain corner! :woot: What sweet words those are lol. Will have to plan on a visit then. Really need to get back into quilting again too. I want to make the Mariner's compass for DH. So many things to do and so little time lol. Work really gets in the way of life. lol

I'm in Madison. It's in Central Maine, pretty close to Waterville.

I absolutely love Halcyon Yarn in Brunswick, although I don't get there very often.

Stonington
07-26-2007, 02:09 PM
We drove by the quite by accident a couple weeks ago... I am not sure that I could find it again lol. Brunswick is very congested traffic-wise this time of year.

Rumford is about 45 minutes away from me. I LOVE Brunswick, I didn't know there was a yarn store there! I'll have to check it out next time I go up to Bailey Island.

Stonington

Blueeyes--do you know if Korner Knitters does classes? I would like to take a sock class for circular needles. I have e-mailed them but never get a response. Should call I guess. :)

Thanks!

With the new bypass I can get to Bath without going near Brunswick. :woot:

The only time we go into Brunswick proper is to get to the Maine State Music Theater.

Judy,

I am usually coming up from South Portland--and I think that I need to take a ride up soon and familiarize myself alot more with the area. Bath is such a great town, but I am so busy finding my way that I have not stopped to enjoy it. We were there over the week of the 4th and there were SSSOOO many people :passedout:lol. I love the Maine State Music Theater!! The last performance we went to was The Full Monty. :cheering: We were hoping to get back this summer but time just has gotten away from us!

Well then you are going to the right place lol. I lived in Rangeley for several years and the climate is about the same. Beautiful, and cold does not even begin to describe the temp some days in the middle of winter. :passedout: I wish you tons of happiness with your move! :cheering:

Thank you, Anne!! Rangeley was also a station that my SO had put in for, as well as Calais. We REALLY wanted Calais, but are still happy about Fort Fairfield! Can't believe we have to be there by 9/16/07. Eeeek!!!:eyes:

Okay, I just recently found this board, and just now... found this thread. I am from Windham and have been knitting for at least 25 years. I have two daughters in college now, with lots of free knitting time.

HI SkyBluePink!!

I'm right next to Ft. Fairfield... in Easton... :woohoo:

Does this mean I have a knitter to talk to nearby?? :woot:

You said you were moving in September, so I'm assuming you are already in FF? I guess this means you figured out that we have no yarn shops here, huh? :sad:
