Hello to All!


Well, we are finally warming up and summer is just around the corner! Yeah! After doing two shows I can tell you it has been great to see people again and seeing all the fun projects people have been working on over the winter months!


Here at Camp Wool we have stocked up on some great wools and probably the best selection of cottons ever! Not to mention at least a dozen new applique samples and a new rug pattern in support of Ukraine. We hope you can pay us a visit over the summer!!!


Covid numbers unfortunately are too high now to do large group classes. However, I will be happy to teach one to one and/or small groups that are used to being together in rug hooking, punch needle or wool applique. I know there is a lot of debate on vaccinations and I fully respect everyone’s decision. However, I have proven despite vaccination to be susceptible to Covid and must take the stance to require vaccination or a recent (last 48 hours) negative test in order to attend class. Simply call me at the store and we will look at calendars to make arrangements! Masks during class will be based on mutual decisions at time of class. I am still looking at hosting other teachers over the summer but nothing has been scheduled yet. I will keep you all updated on that front over the next month!

Camp Wool Will be Vending Again in late July!

(Note: store closed dates during and after event)


I am please to announce that I will be vending this summer at the Maine State Quilt Show hosted by the Maine Pine Tree Quilters Guild in Augusta, Maine.

When: July 28, 29 & 30! 9:00 to 5:00 p.m. each day.

Where: Augusta Civic Center

Please note that the store will be closed the week of July 25 and the week of Aug 1 while we work the show and then bring merchandise back and set the store back up again!

Planning a visit to Camp Wool – Upcoming Open Store Hours/Schedule!

We have spots for sewing machines too! Just bring your projects and have fun. I will leave it up to attendees and current Covid conditions for the use of masks.

Group Class Room Reservations!

As a reminder, we have a wonderful spot for groups to reserve (other than Wednesdays). We have lowered the fee to $5.00 per person per day with 100% going to local animal shelter. Many folks have reached out to me to stop by! We’d love to have you. Just give me a call at the store to discuss dates.


The Red Barn Motel remains an excellent option if you wish to stay overnight. If you book on line remember to put in Camp Wool in the reservation and get an additional 5% off your room rate. Note: They already offer discounts when you book on-line! They are a very pet-friendly establishment. Also nearby is Ocean Spray Cottages in Harrington check them out as well as many VRBO options in and around Milbridge!!

Finally I wanted to mention that my e-mail has not been working over the last month due to computer problems. If you need to reach me, please call the store! I hope you all have a fantastic summer and I hope to see you in the near future!!

Take care.

Hello Camp Wool Customers!

Happy to say that winter will soon be over and we will be seeing the sun and hopefully some green grass and pretty tulips and daffodils soon! While we’ve been closed we’ve been doing a few shows and the store has been experiencing some improvements! We are happy to report that all of our shop lights have been replaced with lovely LEDs, making it even easier to see all the pretty colors. Soon we will also be getting a new roof as well, which is dictating some of our upcoming schedule. Personally I have been making new samples, hooking a rug or two and visiting some friends and family which has been a lot of fun.

Many of you have asked about the new schedule and I have added select dates in April and May working around shop improvements and personal schedules. Our full time hours will start in June. Here is what I know so far! I will not change these dates so you can count on them to plan a visit! I look forward to seeing you again in 2022!!!

Store Hours During February and March 2022


With the store move happening so quickly I left a few things unfinished back in Kennebunk and some appointments that need to be kept. That means I will have very limited hours during the months of February and March. The dates that follow are given open dates (barring any major weather event in which case I will chose alternatives) so that if you need something or simply want to get out you will have a chance to come visit us. It is possible I will add to these dates so just keep checking the website and Facebook or call the store to get the latest on available open dates!! I have never closed before or for that matter not worked since being a teenager so this is different for me. As we get older though we have to listen to our bodies and recognize when pauses are a good thing. I will be catching voice mail often so if you need anything do not hesitate to leave a voice mail and I will get back to you.


Please do not use independent sources like Google for information about open dates.
