Yarn Shopping in Maine
So sad to be missing the Illinois KH gathering. I'll just have to comfort myself with yarn shopping in Maine. We fly in to Manchester,NH and drive to Ogonquit, ME. During the week we will most likely go up to Freeport and Portland. Any LYS s I should search out?

To all the happy knitter's in IL-----have a great time(but not too great), take pictures(but try not to look too happy) and think about those of us who are missing out on this FIRST Illinois road trip. See you in Long Grove this fall!

Halcyon Yarn in Bath is absolutely wonderful. I live about an hour and a half north of Bath and I travel down just to go there. I've heard a lot about Central Yarn in Portland, but I've never been there. Stonington is from the Portland area, so she could probably help you out more.

Pre-Welcome to Maine! I am fairly new to knitting and have just started exploring! I visited a shop in Cornish a few weeks ago and was happily surprised at her selection, left there drooling ha!:
Rosemary's Gift Shop: www.maine-crafts.com
22 Main Street
Cornish, ME 04020
I would really love to go into this shop in Freeport--Maybe this Sunday as we have to go to LL Bean. It is right on Route one.. very easy to find ...
Grace Robinson & Company
208 U. S. Route One
Freeport, ME 04032
I have been going to AC Moore and Craft Mania here in South Portland for most of my Knitting Supplies :thinking: exploring is always dangerous for me lol and my check book.

Have a wonderful vacation! :sunny:
