Hello from Camp Wool!

Well we have finally removed everything from the old store and have most of the merchandise moved to our new location!! As many of you can relate, we underestimated how much there was to move so we had to make more trips then planned. Oh well it’s done. We could not have done it without the help of some wonderful friends and extended customer family!!! We are blessed to have all of you in our lives!!! We are all a little pooped but getting reenergized as we begin to put the new store together!!




We are including a few photos of our new Camp Wool Meeting Room! This will be a spot for husband’s to rest, classes to be held and all sorts of great conversation and creating!!!!! Did you spot the fireplace….. Yes a fireplace is there for ambiance on those cold New England days!!! There is also wonderful light with skylights running the full length of the area and windows on each end. We have assessed the space and feel we can comfortably seat up to 20 people for a variety of creative pursuits. This space can be reserved for $10 a day per person!!!! Even if you have a group of 4 or 6 you can reserve so feel free to call us to check on availability and we will reserve the space for you!!!! Note that ½ of the $10 fee will be going to a Maine-based animal shelter! Coffee is included and we will also have refrigerated water and snacks for a small donation!!! What a great way to spend time with your friends!!!!!


Please note that while we do not reopen until Wednesday, June 23 we are working at the store every day and can take your calls!!! In the next few days we will also post some information about our opening week so stay tuned!!!

Take care we miss you but will be open soon!!
